Bill Gates tweeted college graduates a dozen-plus times on Monday, giving them advice on future hot jobs fields and urging them to fight inequity around the world.

Gates, co-founder of Microsoft who dropped out of Harvard University in 1975, has given advice online before. In 2015, Gates, told students in a blog that earning a degree not only helps graduates get more rewarding, higher-paying jobs, but it also helps the American economy as a whole, reported CNN.

In March, Forbes named Gates the richest person in the world for the fourth straight year and for the 18th time in the past 23 years. The magazine said his $86 billion worth was up from $75 billion last year.

In 14 Twitter posts, Gates used a clip from the classic 1967 movie "The Graduate" to push artificial intelligence, energy, and biosciences, while encouraging them to find people who will challenge them to be their best. He also stated he wished he knew more about inequities around the globe.
