I love Twitter. No. I adore twitter. Actually I probably wouldn’t have a business without Twitter so when I hear people question “what does it have to do with me?” I have to say, if you’re in business, it has everything to do with you!

As a little background noise, I can tell you that I have made the most exciting connections, built up a supportive audience, had several requests for national and local PR opportunities, completed numerous sales, sought help for just about everything (I mean everything) and grown exponentially on a personal level throughout it all. So you see Twitter is where it’s at in business terms and if you’re not in it, you’re not making the most of the global information and connection and growth available to you.

To get you started on your quest for finding some top notch women in business to follow, look no further and know that right here is all you need to really whet your business palette. These are not necessarily the worlds ‘ high-fliers’ (although some really are) but just women like you and me doing their thing and doing it well. Their tweets are relevant, helpful and filled with interesting content to explore in their fields of expertise.

These are in no particular order whatsoever, each as valuable and important as the next!

Hi Lisa Cherry, I never knew that Ted Women had their own account. Great list :)

    I know…it’s fab isn’t it? TED Talks just for us!

Great list Lisa, now I just hope Twitter let me follow the ones I am not following… 😉

    There’s enough there to keep you very busy! :0)

Hi Lisa,

What a great list! Thanks. I am looking forward to spending time going through the list.

    Let me know who you come across that you love!

What I would do to be stuck in a room alone with all 50 woman haha

Oh well.. Congrats to all the woman.. I know most and look to connect with the rest :)

Thank you for this list, Lisa – lots of new and interesting people to follow :-)

    Plenty to follow….once I got started, I actually found I could go way beyond 50!

An impressive list, indeed, Lisa!

How do you manage to follow all these lovely ladies AND get everything you need to done – help required here, methinks… 😉

    That sounds like my next blog post ;0)

Thank you, Lisa, I’m honoured to be on your list in such stellar company :-) And thanks also for giving me some new names to check out and freshen up my Twitter stream!

    A pleasure indeed! Everyone on there I follow and almost all, I have followed for a good while so It’s given me a good chance to observe everyone ;0)

I was just looking at my Twitter stream the other day and thinking I have no idea why the majority of folk are on there – the next rainy day I will be checking out all these names – thanks :)

Brilliant list, thanks. Have been looking for some new tweeters to follow. Next stop…. Twitter!

    Don’t forget to look me up too ;0) Twitter is the place to be….

Hi Lisa, What a list! Thank you for putting it together and listing me! I am chuffed! Just goes to show the value we do put out is being noticed! :). Now to follow all the ladies I have not yet followed, including your good self!

    It’s always nice to know that other people appreciate the work we do :0) #youareappreciated

Great list Lisa and thanks for including me, very happy! :)

    Good good! You post some great content and ensure that you research your topic so that you tweet relevant material :0)

      I do indeed, I always make sure the content I share on all social networks to be relevant to my followers/clients. It takes up a lot of time, but lots of people appreciate it. :)

Are you at the following 2000 people stage?

Guess who my hero is? don`t get narke speak to sarke.

What a brilliant list, I was already following quite a few on this list and it's lovely to add some new people.

Hi Nicky, yes it is the darn ratio…but it might be OK…am going through the list… 😉

Thanks Jim, may have to make that my strapline 😉

Great list here Lisa! I'm following a number of these women/accounts but now I have a bunch more to learn from. :) Thanks!

That’s a really interesting & diverse list – thanks for taking the time to put it together


Wow Lisa, I’m honoured, thank you. What a wonderful list – I am thrilled to be included. It never ceases to amaze me the amazing connections we can make ‘virtually’ and the possibilities that lie ahead. Dinah x

    A pleasure. What is really heart warming is seeing a so many amazing women in one space all doing amazing things, with their businesses, in their communities and in seeking to make a difference.

This is so helpful. Like many people who have commented above, I already follow some of these people. I will happily check out the rest. Thanks for providing a way to enrich my Twitter experience; like you, I am a big of a fan!

    Thanks Lindsay…it’s a Twitty revolution! :0)

Lovely to have this list – some of who I already follow and often talk to in real life. Do you have this as a Twitter list? That way anyone can follow your list and keep up to date with all of them. Or of course people could always make their own and use TweetDeck or Hoot Suite to track this list separately. I love TweetDeck myself. Much easier to manage Tweets with this free downloadable software.

    Good suggestion Andy. I use a number of lists, one of which is called Amazing Women and another is called Keeping It Real! I couldn’t survive on Twitter without Hootsuite and my lists!

Great list. Maybe one day I’ll make it on there. My favourite tweeter is Kim Garst .

I’m just getting started on Twitter and was looking for some inspiration on who to follow. What a fabulous list and the timing is just perfect. Thanks Lisa!

    Hi Laura ….very pleased you’re inspired! :0)

WOW!! Lisa, thanks for putting together such a great list of women to follow on twitter. Many of them I am already following and the others I am looking forward to connecting with and getting to know them, including yourself. Thanks also for listing me and my wonderful group of women, for whom all of this has been made possible – I am truly honored to be featured here. Thanks also to the lovely Lavinia Osbourne for highlighting I was actually on the list!! It was a total surprise to me.

Looking out for your tweets too Lisa, you’ve done a great job at helping us all stay connected. Keep up the good work. :)

    Thanks Tracy and I’m so glad you found out you were on there! Shows what a mighty fine space we inhabit! :0)

Lisa Cherry

Really pleased with how well this list has been received….

Darling, how so like you to be so generous to others. Thank you. Good to be part of an eclectic and interesting list. Lang may yet lum reek, sugarplum! X Jane

Thank you so much for the listing! I found this while searching @ChiefHotMomma for a random list I think I may be on causing non-existent accounts to follow me, and – lookie here….it led me to this wonderful surprise. Thank you very much. I guess I should also thank “DangX” and his 80 non real friends for following me, because it led me to you!

Looking forward to checking out this wonderful list.


    How brilliant that you found the site by ‘accident’….I love that! Happy tweeting and thanks for finding this piece :0)
