We’re falling more in love with Twitter every day. It’s let us speak with fans from more countries than we imagined possible and that’s been nothing short of amazing. Not to mention eye opening. We wanted to share those countries with you, and a few observations.
Keep in mind these people represent every race, religion, sexual preference, colour and continent. Some are free, some are oppressed. Some are poor, some are rich. Some of their governments are at war with each other.
Yet there’s only one possible conclusion you can make after talking to them. We’re all the same; we’re all human. The fears, successes, failures and hopes. The bad jokes, the family issues. Our strange fascination with meme videos. We’re much more similar than we are different. It’s bizarre that a species which has split the atom has difficulty with such an obvious, logical truth. In the last few months we’ve had conversations with people from these countries:
In alphabetical order: Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, El Salvador, Egypt, Estonia, French Guiana, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Madagascar, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Paraguay, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam and Zambia
