Top 100 Most Influential Women’s Twitter Handles About Technology

Top 100 Most Influential Women’s Twitter Handles About Technology

At Innov8tiv, we try our best to shed more light to the under-represented contributors to technology. Women are by far the least represented in the technology research and development scene compared to their male counterparts.

To prove this for yourself, take a look at any latest and trending technology news on social media, especially on Twitter. For our avid readers and followers on social media, you know or probably participated in last Tuesday’s #UrbanTechWeekend interactive Twitter chat on technology.

The #UrbanTechWeekend got me thinking, just how many women are actually active on social media, talking about technology? Sure women might not (as of now) be well represented in

the tech-scene, but at least they could be talking about it. After a bit of research on the internet I ran into a compiled report by Business Insider on the Top 100 Most Influential Tech Women on Twitter.

Top 10 Most Influential Tech Women on Twitter starting from #1 to #10:
