Twitter influencers are everywhere, working hard and giving us powerful tweets to influence our lives. And this is not an easy task, you know. But you are ungrateful and you don’t appreciate them enough. By the time you are done reading this, you should be full of appreciation for the hard work they do.

Every morning, a Twitter influencer wakes up and checks their Twitter.
