You are what you tweet

Nevadans kick ass in 140-character bursts. Research released by public relations firm Digital America last week ranked Nevada No. 1 in Twitter participation, with 1.74 percent of its 2.7 million residents on the site. Consider it proof the state can lead the country in something other than foreclosures and the unemployment rate. Come celebrate—and meet a handful of Nevada’s 47,000 “tweeps”—at the third annual Twestival, being held March 24 at Caramel inside the Bellagio. The “tweetup” will raise money for local charity AFAN (Aids for AIDS of Nevada) and help social networkers put faces to all those @usernames. It’s #fun, slightly #dorky and the can’t-miss event for #socialmedia addicts in #Vegas.
Inspired by the beautiful villages of Europe, the AAA Five Diamond Bellagio overlooks a Mediterranean-blue, 8 ½-acre lake, where fountains perform a magnificent aquatic ballet choreographed to music and lights.
Within Bellagio are award-winning dining experiences including two AAA Five Diamond restaurants, Julian Serrano's Picasso and Le Cirque from the renowned Maccioni family.
Bellagio is home to an impressive collection of luxury retailers including Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Breguet, Prada, Fred Leighton, Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Bottega Veneta, Hermès and OMEGA.
A world-class art gallery, the exquisite Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, the stunning “O” by Cirque du Soleil, a luxurious spa and salon, dynamic nightlife at The Bank, Hyde Bellagio and Lily Bar & Lounge and an elegant casino all add to the extraordinary Bellagio experience.
