The European Union (#EU) and Africa (#Africa) lead the conversation in Davos


Discussions surrounding the European Union (#EU) and Europe (#Europe) dominated the online conversations on day one of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. These emerging themes were strongly influenced by David Cameron’s speech, which addressed the potential of a referendum on Britain’s membership in the European Union. The Twitterverse responded boldly, demonstrating strong views on both sides of the discussion.

The rest of the world participated in a much different discussion, sharing thoughts and insights on broader topics including education and investment in #Africa, as well financial reforms in #Russia.

Both conversations demonstrate very interesting revelations about what individuals feel are important economic trends that should take priority in a global discussion between world leaders.
