GEGs on Twitter

So many new GEG launches and many now using Twitter as a platform. This is really taking off now from when we tried to encourage GEGs to move across last year. Some GEGs are still in their early days and would benefit from some followers so please support each other by giving a follow and share their posts. We will add a few each newsletter.
