Welcome to the latest Twitter Trawl – the last one before the Network’s summer break in August! We trawl twitter to bring you the best of the tweets that are relevant for the communication for development sector. This is the full fat version – a briefer ‘highlights’ newsletter is distributed weekly to full members.
