In 2009, a group in the United Kingdom did something extraordinary. They held a Tweetup (using Twitter to gather friends for a meeting) to support one of their favorite charities, Charity Water, a nonprofit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Globally, the Twestival raised more than $250,000, providing the funds needed to bring access to clean water to more than 17,000 people.
