Just imagine if Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had Twitter or other social networking applications at his disposal; his message would have been even more world changing. The exponential impact of his sound bites would have been extremely powerful with a tool like Twitter.
I believe we take for granted the fact that our message, story, voice, thoughts can literally be globally shared at our leisure and by the push of a button. As we set aside January 15th. to honor the life of a Man that impacted the world in so many ways, I thought it would be great to share quotes with our social networks and use the hashtag #MLK. Below are 20 Retweetable Martin Luther King Jr. #MLK Quotes. Retweetable meaning there is already enough characters left for others to retweet your post. Please re-tweet this blogpost and re-tweet some #MLK quotes throughout the day.
