Pictures are worth a thousand words, yet they work so well in the world of 140 characters. I am, of course, talking about Twitter and the impact digitized photos have on this influential platform.
To honor those filling the social network with beauty, insight and more, we've compiled 15 of the absolute best photography accounts to spread their passion, show the significance of digitizing your photos, and enlighten you on an outlet to share your memories.

So explore all 15, get inspired and enjoy!15 Twitter Handles to Follow Who Digitize Photos
