Cochin twestival 2011 – A day to remember

Meeting tweeples  who they only knew by their twitter handles , spending the night with some nice music and all for a noble cause was all a tweep could ask for and twestival Cochin delivered it all . The Cochin edition of the twestival was held  at the Cochin  Gymkhana club yesterday. Around 150 tweeps from all parts of the state came just to meet the fellow microbloggers. Adarsh charitable trust was the selected NGO , to whom the donations collected by the twestival was given to .

It all started with a welcome note and the twestival video. A breif into of the Adarsh Charitable trust was followed . A talk about MAD was the next session . Last year the support was given to MAD. A session on malayalam blogging and tweets in Malayalam was taken by Mr. Pradeep Kumar and VK Adarsh respectively. The session was extremely informative for those who was deeply in love with their mother tongue.

The presentation of  rain lovers community in facebook , Ente mazha was next . Later the night the Young Rock band Kaav gave the tweeples a taste of some real music and a Twestival could’ve never ended up in a better way . Prizes were distributed for blog competition held as part of twestival , and i am proud to say that the winner was my colleague @cyberganga (Yippe !! We got ourselves a brand new Dell 2.1 Surround speaker 🙂 Thanks twestival Organizers. ).The India vs Autralia match was so intense that some got attracted to the match screening at the venue.

PS: For those who couldn’t be part of the event you can help the charitable trust here. The donation window will be open till Sunday.

For those who missed take a look at the pictures and have a glimpse at what you really missed .Thanks to BinnyVA
