Thousands of us are constantly summing up our moments in a handful of characters or less on Twitter, that minutia-loving, see-it-now service that makes traditional blogs look as large and lumbering as some ancient land mammal. And it doesn't take that many characters to write out that much of the world needs clean drinking water, an urgent and serious matter that the Twittering community has taken to heart (and to their keyboards, phones and Blackberrys).
Twestival 2009, a gathering of tweeters from points everywhere, raises money for communities needing safe, drinkable water through charity:water, while bringing out a host of entertainment luminaries and other guests to lend time, comedy, and song to the to-do. The SF party, which is happening at the Paradise Lounge, promises djs galore and Deborah Crooks.
Whether you tweet or just get tweeted, you're welcome at this high-profile, highly important bash.
Thursday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
11th St. & Folsom
