The event brought together almost 300 Chicago area twitter users, including our own Jerry Taft.
'Twitter' is a social networking site.
On Thursday night, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. local micro-bloggers joined more than 100 cities around the globe, hosting similar events. They're all raising money for a group dedicated to providing clean drinking water to developing nations.
And Jerry Taft made a few friends.
