CGD Tweets of the Year-

December 30, 2013

Nancy has her Global Development Wish List, the Global Health team has their Top 10 blogs – and this year we present our Tweets of the Year.

There’s no magic formula (or regression), this is simply an assortment of tweets that made CGDers think, laugh, retweet, share, or laugh some more. You’ll see that our selections come from CGDers, friends, colleagues, and tweeters we’ve yet to meet.

Please help us round out our collection by proposing your own Tweets of the Year in the comments below.
