Last night @FemkeHalsema, leader of GroenLinks parliamentary party, hosted a Twitter party for her followers. Five hundred people attended #twist in Pakhuis de Zwijger. The idea of the party came from Queen Beatrix’ annual speech in which she repeatedly stated that online communication forms are bad for our offline relations, that they lead to weaker social ties and promote anonymous hate activity. In his speech, columnist and blogger Bert Brussen, mocked the Queen for sending a telegraph STOP to our Olympic medal winners STOP
The theme of the evening was ‘A Free Web’ and also marked the launch of the GroenLinks campaign Wanted for downloading against criminalizing downloading. An evening in pictures:
Thank you, Femke Halsema!
