Top Twitter Accounts to Follow

Technological evolution took over the world so fast that it is sometimes hard to believe the development we see around us. Internet and smartphones have changed the lives of people and it was then that social media emerged as a game changer.

For us 21st century kids, getting a source of knowledge is not enough! Knowledge for us should come in great visual and from credible sources. This is one of the reasons we find social media so engaging. Being a young nation, social media is one of the major platforms where one can assemble the youth, Twitter being one of them.

The advantage of Twitter is that it connects you with the most prominent as well as the most common of the people. Who could have thought in the 90s that a day will come when all we had to do to know ‘What Bill Gates is up to right now?’ is scroll down his twitter account page.

Getting to know the people who inspire you is one of the best things that Twitter allows you to do.
