If you are using Twitter from Lafayette, Indiana, then you are already a fan of Lafayette Twestival!

Even if you don't use Twitter or Facebook, come tonight at The Muse at 7 PM to network with other local people, while supporting a great local non-profit - City Foods.

A "Twestival" is a "Twitter Festival" that brings people together for an evening of entertainment, charity and humanity. There are many ways we can support the local community and the Lafayette Twestival is one of them.

We are excited to see such a great interest from the local people for this 4th edition of the local Twestival.

We are confident that it will be a great success, and we can't wait to share with you great photos and news about the amazing things City Foods will do with the funds, in collaboration with the North 10th Street Co-op Garden project.

We can do amazing things in Greater Lafayette - all we need to do is to communicate.

Buy tickets at the door, buy them online, or donate as a local small business - any way you choose to support this great Twitter Festival is greatly appreciated, we thank you for your efforts!

Huge THANK YOU to the team of 10 local people that helped with the Twestival this year in Lafayette, to the local artists and bands that dedicate their talent to this event, and also to our supportive sponsors The Muse, ISPhotographic, C-Factor Marketing, AVL Solutions and Artistic Media Partners (WAZY 96.5, Bob FM 95.3, The Rocket 95.7).

Yes, the local newspaper, Journal & Courier, is very active on Twitter. Over the past few years they have created a specialized team that focuses on their online presence and opportunities to mix the online news feed with the offline exclusives. They are doing a great job and are very much appreciated in our community.
