The Twitter phenomenon continues to explode. Exponential growth has users vying for followers. The latest twitter trend has been #TweettoBeat where @tferriss is donating $3 for ever new twitter follower to public schools in the US.

Hopefully more Twitter users with clout will “follow” Tim Ferriss' lead. 

"The goal is directly helping 25,000 U.S. public school students in low-income and high-need areas in two weeks. This timeline is half the time dedicated to LitLiberation. My current follower count is, at the time of this writing, 22,782, so we'll round down and begin the count at 22,500."

Implications - Though many see social media as a nuisance, some see potential in online networking to change the world for the better.
