All hail the Twitter bird!
Social media has the power to change the world. It allows people with the same shared beliefs to come together and marshal grassroot support for causes.
It could be used to organize protests, campaign for beliefs, or even used to promote giving back to community.
One such great example of the latter is Twestival, a global phenomenon that started two years earlier in 2009. Twestival is an event in which people organize organic grassroot fundraisers using twitter to give to charities all over the world in a single day.
For 2011, that day was last week on March 24th. In Singapore, volunteers here picked CARE, a charitable agency which aims to help youths at risk, as the beneficiary.
