Millions of links are shared on Twitter each day.
A fraction of these links end up in my timeline, shared (and sometimes authored) by the accounts I follow. Most of the time, they point me to great articles I might have missed otherwise.
Below you can find links to some of these articles.
I have selected them for their originality and relevance. They have all been brought to my attention via Twitter and provide crucial insights into various issues related to the internet:
