To Think Different, Read Different

Fans of Apple often identify with the company's original advertising campaign for the Mac which encouraged users to "Think Different". However, choosing a particular type of computer isn't really enough to change our way of thinking.  To think differently, we need to read differently.  We need to expose ourselves to people with an unusual point of view.

Here are 10 Twitter accounts that share original and curated content that will make you think:
