Twitter Top Ten – 12/21/14: Our favorite tweets of the week
We admit it. We love our end-of-the-week task of picking our favorite tweets. It gives us a chance to reinforce some of the concepts we ponder all the time, while also thinking outside our normal boxes and including some organizations that aren’t normally featured on NextBillion.
And, don’t tell the boss, it’s a great excuse to kill time perusing the tweetosphere.
Plus one more bonus: It’s a great way to stay in touch with readers. So let us know you’re out there. Send us the tweets that strike your fancy each week – whether they make you think, or answer a question, or just generally brighten your day.Tweet general social enterprise topics to@NextBillion or NB managing editor @ScotterAnderson, global health topics to @NextBillionHC and financial inclusion topics to@NextBillionFI.
Be sure to check us out every week and, if you like what you see, spread the word.?
