Twitter Top 10: 6-7-2015
Have you read “the biggest story in the history of capitalism”? Do you have any ideas about how to change corporate behavior forever? Can you name “the new venture capital”?
We ?have to admit, we had to answer “no” to all these questions. That is, until we visited the Twittersphere this week in search of our Top 10 list. Now we’re feeling all caught up … and you will be too, as soon as you read our compilation.
?That’s not all. We also learned about the surprisingly strong state of entrepreneurship – and surprisingly weak state of mobile money – in Africa; an inexpensive new test for ALL viral exposures; and an expression you’ll never hear from an economist.
It’s always an adventure when we wade into the world of Tweets. We could use your guidance: Tweet general social enterprise topics to @NextBillion or NB managing editor @ScotterAnderson, global health topics to @NextBillionHC and financial inclusion and impact investing topics to @NextBillionFI.
