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? Shauna has cultivated a huge community through not only her amazing blog of gluten-free recipes and photos but also through the life stories she shares with her readers. Her Twitter presence is vast, yet she manages to still be engaging and kind. Her cookbook is filled with so much love that it’s no surprise she’s a great follow – regardless of your foodie preferences. Shauna’s blog, Gluten-Free Girl, is also one of Babble’s top 100 food blogs.
