I am working on a new project: building a list of 10,000+ Black Business Women on twitter
. To get on my list follow @blackbizwomen
and please RT to the sistas in your circle to keep the connections growing!
I originally attempted this project as a sistasense twitter list of black business women
,which worked out great until I realized twitter lists max out at 500 ... so creating the @blackbizwomen turned out to be the best way to start this project.
Anyhoo, I'm sure you know this already but here's the thing ... I'm a black entrepreneur with a very strong interest in seeing other black business owners come together and build our own thriving networks. And yesterday, smack dad in the middle of eating hot wings (yes I'm telling you what I was eating) ... I got this idea .... wouldn't it be great to connect as many black business women as I could using the most widely used social medium today .... twitter. Forgive me, I just did a post on 21 Twitter Tips
, so it's on my brain.
Anyway, with that light bulb thought I am now challenging myself to create a list of 10,000 Black Business Women on twitter
and I need your help to do it. I think this is going to be a great opportunity to showcase other women entrepreneurs of color, help them discover other fabulous business women, and build the black business buzz online.
Here is a link to the original list: Black Business Women on Twitter and the new list via @blackbizwomen. We all need to showcase our businesses and continue to make connections, so I'm excited to see what becomes of this new project.
What can I say, I like to create these fabulous lists of black business owners. It all started when I created the Sistas Making Money
page on myspace a few years ago. Once that took off I stepped up my game and created Black Business Women Online
. BBWO is one of my social networks on Ning.com, which now has over 7,500 members!
I'm off to add new women entrepreneurs to my new twitter list. If you are one of them, remember to get on the list just follow @blackbizwomen
. To the first 10,000 and beyond!
