Top 11 Twitter Accounts in 2010

in Tech

2010 has been a great year for me personally and for BizChickBlogs as well. That said, we’re moving into 2011 with really big plans (shhh). I’m so excited!

This will be the last Follow Friday post for 2010. If you are really interested in taking your blog somewhere, I strongly suggest following these great Twitter accounts or adding them to a Twitter list, subscribing to their blogs, reading their work, asking them questions, etc. They are consummate bloggers who you will learn from.

It was really hard, but I narrowed the list down to 11 in the spirit of the coming 2011. I would have loved to go on and on with the list; I am following so many great accounts. I’m super-proud to say that the majority of these are women (although I didn’t notice that until after I put the list together). Go chicks!

Before I get into that…

Thank you for this post. I am new to twitter, so I’m always looking for great people to follow. Just started following BizChicks too!

ryan December 10, 2010 at 7:08 pm

…People use bing? I thought most of the people stuck to only twitter these days…

Roko Nastic December 7, 2010 at 9:01 am

Out of those 11 I already follow 8! Now added the rest. Great list.

Tia Peterson December 7, 2010 at 9:11 am

Thanks, Roko!

Gail Gardner @ Bloggers Support Bloggers December 5, 2010 at 5:03 pm

Thank you, Tia, for this excellent list. I am honored to be included among such talent and have made sure I am following everyone on your list. I have been sharing it on Twitter, StumbleUpon, FriendFeed and Facebook but just realized I had not commented yet.

Tia Peterson December 7, 2010 at 9:10 am

Hey Gail,

Of course you would be here! You’re like the Pied Piper of Twitter. πŸ™‚ Without you, it just wouldn’t be the same.

DiTesco December 5, 2010 at 5:22 am

Just had to see if there was anyone that I have not followed yet :). Unfortunately, with the exception of one, I already follow all these great people. So to show you that we are on the same “wavelength”. Off to follow the other one that I missed. Agreed Tia, this is a great list of resourceful people, no doubt.

Tia Peterson December 5, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Ha yes, DiTesco, I think we’re on the same wavelength!! πŸ™‚

Lauren Ashley Miller December 4, 2010 at 9:34 pm

What a great guest blogger idea and especially topic! I already registered and opened a word doc to start writing it to submit. Excited to reflect on that.
Thanks for all the recommendations!

Tia Peterson December 5, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Hi Lauren! I can’t wait to read your guest post!

Richard December 3, 2010 at 10:53 pm

Hi Tia,
good list of tweeters and bloggers. I follow all of those blogs and love their content. I’ll have to add them to my twitter list as well.

Alease Michelle @ December 3, 2010 at 6:58 pm

Tia, Love the 11 Tweeters to follow. I subscribe to about 4 of them already, but I am super glad I have more bloggers to follow and learn from.

As for 2011.. I too am looking forward to a great year. I am making plans as I write. I am very much looking forward to reading yours and other bloggers 10 things they learned in 2010.

Alease Michelle

Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 7:03 pm

Thanks so much, Alease. I would love for you to write a post, so if you’ve got ideas, you’re more than welcome. πŸ™‚

Alease Michelle @ School of Creative Business December 5, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Thanks Tia for asking. I would love to write a guest post. I will work on one and send it out to you in a few days.


Kristi December 3, 2010 at 4:57 pm

Thanks for the inclusion! That is a great list you have there, and lots of fine people on it. πŸ™‚

Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 7:16 pm

You’re so very welcome, Kristi! Sorry I didn’t make it to Blogworld to meet you. Are you going to the Mashable Awards in Vegas in January? I am planning (really, really) to go with a friend.

Francisco Rosales December 3, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Hey Tia, I was paying my regular visit to your blog and found this, what a great surprise. Thanks for including me in your list, it’s an honor to be in such good company.

I think 2010 has been a great year for most of us in the list and for you too. Best wishes for 2011!

Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 7:17 pm

You’re welcome, Francisco. It really has been a great year. Seems like everyone is in a good mood lately. I’m eager for 2011!


Evelyn @ Become a Healthier You December 3, 2010 at 10:00 am

Hi Tia,
Thanks for including me in your “Top 11!” I follow some of other awesome Twitter Accounts that you have shared and they share some great information.

Have a great weekend!


P.S. I clicked on the nice banner above your header and thought I was going to get a sneak peak…I wasn’t expecting a little peak. I laughed out loud, because you got me. πŸ™‚ Too cute!

Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 1:35 pm

LOL Nice! That’s awesome that you laughed out loud. πŸ™‚

Thanks for being a great Twitter friend and for all that you do to help people become healthier!


Alex@Jocuri December 3, 2010 at 9:09 am

Great, all the people you mentioned are great people with great blog that share lots of great information.
Also I can see you are going with a pinkish theme, I hope it turns out great!

Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 9:12 am

Hey Alex,

Yep, the new header will be white letters on that pale pink background. This is going to be a very women-centric site. Well, at least it will appeal to women who like pink. LOL


Ana | Traffic Generation Cafe December 3, 2010 at 8:55 am

Happy to report I was following most of those folks and absolutely agree about the quality of their tweets.

Great idea for the blog post, Tia; thanks for sharing some link love!


Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 7:19 pm

You’re welcome, Ana! Any time!

Sherryl Perry December 3, 2010 at 8:35 am

Great list Tia! Thanks. I’ve shared this where I could. Hard to believe it’s been a year. Wow! You do a great job here. I’ve already been following most of the bloggers on this list (thanks to past follow-Fridays) and have learned an amazing amount of info from them already! Best wishes for 2011.

Tia Peterson December 3, 2010 at 7:20 pm

It’s really something to look back at how quickly the blog grew and how much I’ve grown also. My aspirations have grown as well. Onward! It’s just the beginning.


Gera@SweetsFoodsBlog December 3, 2010 at 8:18 am

Hi Tia,

I’m very proud to be part of this awesome list! Thank You!

I’m following most of them, but some are missing – going to see, later.

Really I wish you the best for the rest of the 2010 and a better 2011! πŸ™‚

All the best,


John Paul Aguiar December 3, 2010 at 7:08 am

Looking forward to what you have in store for next year Tia. Your blog is one I enjoy visiting regularly. Here’s to your continued success in 2011 πŸ™‚
