Twitter Top Ten – 11/16/14: Our favorite tweets of the week
Well, the “pilot” days are over and our Twitter Top Ten makes its debut today as a permanent feature, with ten great tweets selected by NextBillion’s editorial staff. Thank you to everyone who’s provided feedback, encouragement and retweets to this feature – we’re glad the response has been so positive. (By the way, these posts have also become favorites of our editorial staff – we enjoy compiling interesting tweets as much as readers seem to enjoy viewing them.)
This week’s selections range from disturbing inequality stats, to encouraging news in impact investing – along with some mild provocation.
If you come across any tweets that we should include next week, you’re welcome to tweet them our way. Tweet general social enterprise topics to @NextBillion or NB managing editor@ScotterAnderson, global health topics to @NextBillionHC and financial inclusion topics to @NextBillionFI.
And as always, if you’re enjoying these posts we welcome you to spread the word on Twitter.
