Top Twitter Moms of 2011
After spending part of 2007 watching everyone "do" this new "tweeting thingy," I logged on as @ToThink in early 2008. And I became a pure Twitter lover, valuing relationships, engagement, sharing, and - yes - information and brand involvement. In my attempt to view it all from the standpoint of value, influence, and epic-ness...well, something happened I didn't quite expect: I became more and more proud of not only how moms are using Twitter, but how we're building businesses (even careers!) with it and have become basically unstoppable. I wanted to high-five (even if that's dorky) every last one of us.
This year we've given 2010's Top 50 Twitter Moms somewhat of an "emeritus" status. You won't find any of them on this list. Why? Not because they've lost influence or aren't just as amazing - they still are. We just decided to spread the love this year and share even more influential moms, who you may or may not already know.
Of course, many didn't make this list simply because there are so many mothers on Twitter doing their thing and being awesome. So if we missed her, be sure to nominate your favorite Twitter mom here! The Top 50 are ranked by amount of followers, so consider them the entirety of The Awesome, and check out the individual categories for a more specific ranking. Congrats to everyone! - Arianne Segerman

The Who, What, Why? Jennie tragically and suddenly lost her husband in August of this year, but she continues to inspire us with her heartfelt words and loving recipes. She is a beautiful example of a mom who uses her influence for good. Jennie’s loss inspired thousands to reach out and connect over peanut butter pies (the pie was a favorite of her late husband’s, and she asked readers and fellow bloggers to bake it in his honor). Jennie continues to exemplify raw beauty as she travels the road of grief and uncertainty.
Best Tweet: On a funny note, Isabella is writing a birthday card for boy she likes “hope all your wishes cum true”. We’ve got some spelling to work on!
