Christina Gaines | @stinaegaines

We’ve dug into the trenches of the Twittersphere- and one thing is for certain. The selection of game-changing, inspiring and business savvy female tweeters is fairly broad.

These are 10 of our favorites.

Eve Mayer | @LinkedInQueen

The handle alone should be a suitable indication of her expertise. In fact, according to Klout, Eve is the second most influential person on the subject of LinkedIn.

It may appear that I say this with a slight bias, however as much as I love my peers at Social Media Delivered, this is not the case.

Our CEO, Eve Mayer, ranks seventh in Forbes’ Most Influential Woman in Social Media, reigns fourteenth on the overall social media power influencer list and is the author of The Social Media Business Equation. Her groundbreaking work has been shared through American Express Open Forum,, Forbes, Social Media Today and Huffington Post-to name a few. Her portfolio could draw on endlessly, but just know that Eve’s frequent amusing and informative pro tips on how to promote your business through social media are uniquely irreplaceable.

Christiane Amanpour | @camanpour

As one of TV’s most recognizable anchors, Christiane is CNN’s Emmy-winning Chief International Correspondent and host of CNN’s nightly global affairs program. She is the first to break news and provide political insight on global conflicts, as well as remains the ultimate authority on women in the journalism world. If you are interested in the latest press knowledge from the perspective of a fearless media trailblazer, follow Christiane.

Chelsea Clinton @ChelseaClinton

Author of It’s Your World and active Vice-Chair of her family’s Clinton Foundation, Chelsea is a determined advocate of safe and healthy communities. Although no longer a special correspondent at NBC News, she remains an intelligent, inspiring figure on mothering, womanhood and social equality.

Janet Hanson | @JanetHanson

Janet Hanson is the founder of 85 Broads, a network for high-achieving women created in 1997, as well as the first woman to ever be promoted to sales management at Goldman Sachs. She is a pioneer of both American finance and female empowerment, and her tweets reflect her passions.

Lucy Marcus | @lucymarcus

Once awarded the “Thinkers 50 Future Thinker Award”, CEO of Marcus Venture Consulting and BBC columnist, Lucy Marcus, is widely known as a frontrunner of progressive thought and a corporate insider. Her ideas of ethics, justice and entrepreneurial success are inspiring not only in her hosting of Reuters “In the Boardroom”, but in her increasingly active Twitter account.

Liz Strauss | @lizstrauss

Liz Strauss is an International business strategist, executive coach, founder of SOBCon business summit and CEO of GeniusShared. Huffington Post calls her one of the “Top Ten Influencers alive”, and as her LinkedIn specifies, right there “next to Oprah and Warren Buffet.” Her Twitter bio entices us to “get hands-serious about achieving your goals” and to “be irresistible”. If you want to follow a profoundly intelligent businesswoman, relevant speaker and amusing thought leader, Liz Strauss is highly recommended.
