I’m feeling lazy today, so a ‘filtering’ post (not original content). Brought to you direct from Twitter blog:

Twittering for The Children

Yesterday I received this email from one of our Dutch Twitter fans.


This morning, dutch journalist and TV presenter Francisco van Jole (@2525) asked if the dutch twitterazi did anything for the OLPC project. I responded by suggesting we’d have a fund raising day today; every tweet with the term ‘olpc’ in it would count as one euro sponsorship money. Since such laptops cost about 140 euro’s, @2525 said he would buy one if we’d reach 140 tweets with ‘olpc’ by midnight tonight.

Today, Michiel emailed to tell me they managed to purchase 21 laptops through laptop.org. Well Merry Christmas then! Good work.

yay! social media for social good! social networks for social fundraising! And you thought you were just wasting time tweeting šŸ™‚
