Subscribe to our favorite African tech Twitter lists

May 18, 2014  »  UncategorizedNo Comment

Over the years, we’ve created a handful of Twitter lists to better filter the onslaught of information coming from the 2,700 accounts we follow. Although lists aren’t commonly used on the platform, the ability to curate groups of Twitter saves valuable time. The most difficult part is manually finding users to add to a given list and then maintaining the list as more organizations launch and join Twitter.

Please consider subscribing the our favorite lists and don’t hesitate to let us know if you’ve created a similar one to make tracking Africa’s Internet progress more efficient!
