All of Twitter’s a buzz since Black Web 2.0 (@BlackWeb20) unleashed their list of “The 100 Most Powerful Black Women on Twitter.” Using Klout and TwitterGrader, many featured on the virtual list of Black Superwomen are also powerhouses away from the QWERTY keyboard.
Angela Simmons is number one on the list. In a matter of years, her vision has helped expand the Pastry’s brand ten-fold going from
sneakers and shoes to kids clothing and even eye wear. Angela’s top recognition is solely based on her influence on Twitter; the number of ”Lists” she appears on, the number of retweets (RT) her messages garner and her number of “Followers.” If a list of Twitter’s Most Powerful Father / Daughter team were created, she and her dad, Reverend Run (@RevRunWisdom), would probably take top awards there too.
Rounding out the top three are number two, Kimora Simmons (@OfficialKimora) and Taraji P. Henson (@TheRealTaraji). Kimora is Queen of Baby Phat, KLS and Phat Farm. She was able to walk off the runway and into the boardroom, branding herself in perfumes and even a reality show. Taraji P. Henson, Actress and Oscar Award Nominee, known for her roles in Baby Boy, Benjamin Button, and most recently as Jaden Smith’s mom in the remake of the Karate Kid. Angela’s big sister, Vanessa Simmons (@VanessaSimmons), is ranked number 43 on the list.
Other Twitter favorites include, Ms. Bevy Smith (@BevySmith), socialite known for her invite-only networking dinners and play-by-play commentary of the View; Star Jones, Esquire (@StarJonesEsq) and former host of The View, you can count on her time line to provide opinion on current events and she often participates in Q&A sessions with her fans; and also June Ambrose (@JuneAmbrose), Fashionista and Stylist, if you follow her you’ll be up on the flyest gear in the land, she’s known to TwitPic some of the hautest clothing and accessories.
Necole Bitchie also made the list at number 59. If the list were titled “Game Changers” she’d be in the Top Three. What once was a celebrity blog has been transformed into a brand that offers fashion jewelry, clothing and a even a new lifestyle magazine, the Bitchie Life. You can read BlackWeb 2.0s feature article on Necole Bitchie here.
Am I surprised at the list? No, not really. It’s a very good snapshot of Black women movers and shakers on Twitter. I think it’s safe to say that it’s the ONLY “Most Powerful” list in the world where you’ll see Kat Stacks ranked alongside Oprah #noshade.
“Let it be known that this glow is not my own. It’s more than me, it’s He, yes, yes, it’s the God in me. I’m created in His image so I know without a doubt, His shine is blinding when I move & let more of Him pour out. So that’s my prayer Father, please move me to the side, so more of you can shine through and be a guiding light!”—@BlackQueen1010
I found Teedra Moses on Pandora several years ago. Her song with JadaKiss, “You’ll Never Find” on her freshman release, “Complex Simplicty,” caught my ear. It was released in 2004, but many are still not familiar with her music. This song, “All That I Have,” is one of my favorite tracks from the “Royal Patience” mixtape she released earlier this year.
If this is the first time you’re hearing this song or about Teedra, visit her website at www.teedra-moses.com and download your FREE copy of “Royal Patience (A Love Journey).”
