  1. Toby Morning Says:

    I find it very hard to believe not one African American women shows up on your “25 most influential” business women in the area . If I am not mistaken, XEROX is a pretty big company, and the woman running deserves some credit here, lets not mention Carol Williams over in Oakland.

  2. Mark Johnson Says:

    You’ve got to be kidding me. Alice Waters has two tweets, the last one from 2009. That just tells me that your list wasn’t very well researched…

  3. Carlos Hernandez Says:

    Thank you for the list.

    Note that a few have only 2-4 tweets and have not updated for weeks nor months.

  4. edith Says:

    Thanks Toby for your feedback! =) There are a lot of amazing women out there! And not everyone of them are on Twitter, if they are and we missed it. Please comment and include their Twitter Handle. We would love to include them!
