Twitter handles to follow for climate change updates on Africa

Social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook are great places to learn, engage and share information and news about climate change. They can be used to promote and share climate change solutions, the latest climate change research and findings, empower people to take action on climate change and even influence changes in behaviour and public opinion. And social media can be used to create social good by connecting people and organisations and facilitating collaboration.
