The Viewspaper is organising, what it is calling, the world’s largest online conference on Twitter, called the ‘I Feel Up Tweet-A-Thon’, where eminent people from all walks of life are discussing the positive things that are happening in our country.
A first of its kind initiative, the virtual conference is being held over three days – January 8, 9 and 10. Over 72 hours, more than 200 panelists would take part in non-stop discussions on the optimistic state of India.
Well-known personalities like Dr Kiran Bedi; Dr Subramanian Swamy; Kailash Kher; Suprio Guha Thakurta, MD, India, The Economist; Ashoka Changemakers, a global online community of action that connects people to share ideas; Dileep Premachandran, Associate Editor, Cricinfo; Amit Kapoor, a Professor at Harvard University and Founder of Competitiveness India, are among the many who are taking part in the Tweet-A-Thon.
Sources close to the development have claimed that the total number of followers of the people who would be on the panel has already crossed 2 million.
#IFeelUp Tweet-a-Thon work is designed to bring together various stakeholders – from media and bloggers to celebrities and politicians – to share ideas, discuss best practices, identify the latest innovations, and pinpoint areas requiring more exploration and more specifically applaud those things that is making India proud.
