Malala Yousafzai celebrates high school graduation by joining Twitter

It’s no surprise that nineteen-year-old education activist Malala Yousufzai has  got thousands of followers within just days of two days of Twitter. The Nobel peace prize winning teenager has 645,000 followers with fans across the world supporting her mission to promote girls’ education. 


Fresh out of high school, Malala retweeted her dad (one of eleven people she is following, the list also includes Melinda Gate and Queen Rania) to pay homage to late philanthropist Abdul Sattar Edhi on his first death anniversary in a special tweet.

Malala received a warm welcome from some inspirational figures like founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates and Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres.  The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among her new followers 


They commended Malala on her courage after surviving an attempted assassination by Taliban for speaking against a ban on girls’ education in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. She later moved to the UK and started an aggressive campaign for the promotion of women education.


Some drew a comparison between Malala and other prominent women.

While most were full of praised for Malala there were a few trolls who resorted to old conspiracy theories. 

And could not fathom the idea how strong young woman could be a representative of…young women.

Others pointed out that her critics are just going to have to deal with her awesomeness on Twitter.

In response to these negative tweets, Malala’s supporters have also come out to give haters what they deserve.
