night of 140 tweets

By: Lauren McPhillips

twitter-bird The tech world has really stepped up to the plate when it came to reaching out to Haiti (sending money to the Red Cross via text message, creating beatuiful iPhone cases and giving all proceeds to the cause), but this one really takes the cake for me. ' Night of 140 Tweets' took place on March 12th of this year, and it was a truly innovative way to raise money for Haiti. Twitter's most famed users came together on stage and each one read out their favourite tweet that they've ever sent. Speakers included:
  • Ashton Kutcher
  • Will Ferrell
  • Sarah Silverman
  • Ben Stiller
  • Dane Cook
  • Justin Long
  • Demi Moore
140 comedians, actors and social media advocates came together for the event, all with the intention of assisting Haiti in their time of need. The video is available on iTunes for $2.99, and all proceeds go to helping the Haitian School Initiative. What a truly innovative way of using social media for something bigger than personal gain. * Warning: The content of the tweets should not be heard by the ears of little ones.*
