I always love social media when it comes to keeping you with what is happening in a particular industry. Social media may not have the full news but they do point you in the right direction.
This is the case with Twitter as I was looking for tweets about depression to share with people that suffer from depression and mental health related illnesses. Some I do not agree with, some makes me say “oh, i did not know that”.

In the meantime, enjoy the facts and wonderful tweets from the world of Twitter.
