“Twitter is Twicky” was my first tweet. In December 2008, I didn’t know the difference between an RT and a DM. How to follow or who to follow. What symbols like @ and # meant. But I quickly began to enjoy this fast-paced platform to connect with, share with, and learn from people all around the world. I’ve since met many twitter friends in person and have many more friends I’d love to meet.
One of those friends is Melissa Stewart (@MelissaOnline). Her site, sheownsit.com, is a site committed to empowering women entrepreneurs by offering resources, support, and inspiration. Her tweets are proof that she lives up to this commitment by tweeting positivity while consistently sharing relevant and uplifting content. One of my favorite tweets of hers is: “Tweet. ReTweet. Connect. Repeat.”
I have come to know and admire many of the other women on this list: @SharonHayes, @thebarefootceo Lisa Hammond, @SmashFit Heather Frey, @LoriMoreno, @PegFitzpatrick, @JessicaNorthey, @joycecherrier, and @AnnTran_. To be included among this group of amazing women is quite an honor.
