Baz, a French Lebanese man born in Beirut, was included in the Art and Photography section for his comprehensive coverage of news and photojournalism in the Middle East.While Baz uses his account for professional purposes, Sharro maintains a successful day job as the director of an international architecture firm in London, making his Twitter account more focused on his other passions.Baz's and Sharro's accounts have gathered a strong following, with Baz now boasting just over 9,500 followers while Sharro's has more than 24,000 .Baz said that his behavior on Twitter changed about six months ago, when AFP sent his name, among others, to be verified. Sharro, on the other hand, has pushed on with the satirical side of his online persona.Sharro said his following was more "a niche audience".
