Twitter’s many addicts take a break from tweeting for no good reason to tweet for a cause today with a 24-hour charity event taking place in over 175 cities all over the planet. Twitter users from as far away as Paris, Dubai and Melbourne will be attending these “Twestival” events to raise cash for charity:water, a non-profit group that drills for clean water in developing countries. Milwaukee’s branch of the Twestival takes place at the Wicked Hop and will feature music from The Color Truth, Micah Olsan and The Barettes, as well as DJ sets from Radio Milwaukee’s Tarik Moody and Lotus Land’s John Keuster. Make sure to tweet to your friends in Dubai if either DJ cleverly spins “Opps (Oh My),” the 2002 hit from forgotten R&B singer Tweet.
