Malala Joins Twitter and Gets 100K Followers in Just Minutes

Malala Yousufzai today joined Twitter, a bit late to the party we’d say but what an entry she had!

Her Twitter handle is already verified and she has managed to gain more than 100,000 followers within 30 minutes of her joining the micro blogging platform.

Malala is best known for her work for girl’s education and winning the Nobel Peace Prize.

While she is one of the most popular teens in the worlds, she did not have any presence on social media platform until today.

“Hi Twitter” is what she said in in her first ever tweet and it’s got more than 18K likes at the time of writing.

In a rare move, Twitter’s official handle actually greeted her along side the hashtag #MalalaInspiresMe.
