Twitter is not just for tweeting out news and trivia or sharing details about your daily routine; it is an excellent tool to connect with like-minded people from around the world. As an active Twitter-er (yes, that is a word, I believe), I have had the opportunity to connect with and interact with some of the most interesting moms on Twitter.
The following 10 Indian moms on Twitter (in no particular order) tweet about being a mom, parenting, family life and best of all, invite you into their worlds. In other words, follow them NOW!
1. @mommylabs – I know Rashmie, the mom behind Mommy Labs and am amazed by her creativity and learning through play ideas. Follow her Twitter stream if you’re seeking creative ways to teach kids about science, maths, or simply, have fun.
2. @McAfee_cybermum – Tweeting about keeping kids safe online, this is one Twitter account that you, as a parent, must follow.
