Can you expand your mind and learn things whilst on Twitter? Absolutely!
The recent development of a new Twitter experiment called “Event Parrot” got me thinking about how Twitter is a Social Media hub for all sorts of information, whether it be News, Facts or Entertainment.
So as a result I’ve gathered together a few of the best accounts to follow which improve your general knowledge and provide you with interesting facts, to make your daily dip into Twitter an educational one. Who knows, you might even learn something…
1. Google Facts
It’s an account worth following, it offers general knowledge which ranges from useful shopping tips to facts about medical discoveries. The account appeals to a wide range of audiences and can help you learn a lot about different things everyday.
