Jill Foster – One of Thirty Women Entrepreneurs To Follow On Twitter

December 3rd, 2009 :: Steven Fisher

jill_fosterFirst she was the co-founder of DC Media Makers, then she founded WomenGrowBusiness.com as part of our small business community of blogs, then the Washingtonian recognized her as one of the Tech Titans of 2009. It is an award totally deserving of some one as awesome and as giving as Jill Foster. I mean just look at that face. For those that have met her know her infectious laugh and penchant for using midwest phrases like “Thanks for Asking” and “You Betcha”. For those of you that have not met her in person but know her on Twitter @JillFoster, it should be no surprise that Forbes Magazine recognized her as one of THE 30 Women Entrepreneurs to Follow on Twitter.

Part of a Killer Twitter Follow List

Jill who is always there on Twitter to offer help, share a great resource link or tell you what interesting event she is at along with the cool person she just met shows you why you should follow her on Twitter. She puts my Twitter usage to shame and I love that about her. It is through people like her that we learn how to properly use this medium. She has been responsible for teaching me to interact more and not just have my Twitter account look like a blog robot (thanks, Jill) and many of my followers should thank her and I have gotten a large increase since that change.

She shares this list with some great entrepreneurs and small business thought leaders. Here are a few of the others on the list:

@JackieBiz: Jackie Burgoa is a business owner and blogger who tweets about business resources, inspiration and opinions. 7,336 followers.

@LindaCSmith: Linda has an excellent feed for entrepreneurs because she constantly tweets quality resources, tutorials, tips and articles. 1,424 followers.

    1. Often we forget the little guy, the SMB, in our discussions of the comings and goings of the Internet marketing industry. Sure there are times like this when a report surfaces talking about their issues and concerns but, for the most part, we like to talk about big brands and how they do the Internet marketing thing well or not so well.
