Twitter Turns 5 & Twestival Manchester

Today, Twitter turned five years old. Probably the one service I use more than any other service on the Internet, and I hate to say if something changed my life, but Twitter did change my life. New job, friends and even a relationship that all arose from the social media site. So to Twitter: happy birthday, thank you and I’ll be celebrating your birthday.

To everybody else, I’ll be celebrating Twitter’s birthday, and it’d be great if you could come!

You see, this Thursday, along with Mancseo, it’s the Manchester Twestival! Last year’s Twestival was an incredible night, where I met my new co-workers, won a flight to Jersey, and generally had an amazing night. Each Twestival’s different, so who knows what’s going to happen on Thursday, but we do know that all proceeds from the event will go to the Wood Street Mission.

The Wood Street Mission is a charity that helps Manchester’s needy in a varity of ways. Beginning in the middle of the 19th Century, The Wood Street Mission donates clothing, bedding and toys to help alleviate the effects of poverty on children in families in Manchester and Salford. You can read more about their work done here.

Manchester Twestival will be held on Thursday 24th March from 6:30pm onwards at Noho, Tickets are available from:
