Little League World Series - Nevada v PennsylvaniaTeens today might have a mixed reputation, but there’s no denying their influence. They command millions of fans on Twitter and Vine,start companies with funds they raised on Kickstarter, steal sceneson TV’s most popular shows, lead protests with global ramifications, and even—as of Friday—win Nobel Peace Prizes.
