I’ve been on twitter for about a year now and have made connections with some pretty cool, but more importantly, very knowledgeable folks.

Here is my personal list of people I think you should definitely follow on twitter. They offer great information, tips, and support. A lot of these folks can be found re-tweeting information from others, including promoting blog posts, contests, or just people in general. Some are willing to help you out if you have a question. But, the best part is, that they’re really nice.

In no particular order:

  1. @JessicaKnows of jessicaknows.com
  2. @KatjaPresnal of skimbacolifestyle.com
  3. @raelee of rtvwonline.com
  4. @problogger of problogger.net
  5. @ResourcefulMom of resourcefulmommy.com
  6. @twittermoms founder of twittermoms.com
  7. @emom of sparkplugging.com
  8. @simplemom of simplemom.net
  9. @geekmommy of geekmommy.net
  10. @chrisbrogan of chrisbrogan.com
  11. @ForeverAlways of faevent.com

Latinos on Twitter

I have to set aside a special little section for my fellow Latino twitter users. I haven’t found many of us on there.

  1. @lymari of besitosdecoco.com – she also manages PR for her sons’ perfume company via @maolilove
  2. @mamitamala of mamitamala.com
  3. @FashionGrail of fashiongrail.com
  4. @gabopagan of gabopagan.blogspot.com
  5. @JaiMami of mamistimeout.com
  6. @JamiMiami of jamireyesco.com
  7. @urbanjibaro of sofritoforyoursoul.com
  8. @MamaHeartsBaby of mamaheartsbaby.wordpress.com
  9. @DrMommy of drmommywrites.com
  10. @lazybreeze of lazybreezejewelry.etsy.com
  11. Bonus: I may be biased, but I think you should follow me too! 😉 @modernmami of modernmami.com

Awesome list. Not only because I made the cut, but because these are all very influential and wise people. Have learned a lot from most of them already.

I MADE THE LIST???? WOW

I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart…and hope that you continue to be successful in all that you do because there is a need to promote the ever changing culture of what it is to be a mommy in this current day. I am a fanof your site…and will promote this blog to everyone (not because I made the list) but because I respect and admire anyone who is a mother that strives to be the best mother she can.

Gracias again,

As I am,
George Torres
The Urban Jibaro

I’m a big fan of George (the Urban Jibaro) and would love to be among his company in your list.

Great list, though. I love finding new people to interact with.

As a follower of quite a few of the moms on your list, I agree entirely with your acknowledgement of their value to the Twitter community! There are others who may well merit a place here too but, I haven’t had time to think up a list since reading yours 🙂 If I don’t forget, I will try to do just that…

Ef: Thanks for adding your link! I am sure I missed many great folks and in fact, I just ran across George’s own list of folks to follow and connected with some great latinos.

Linnet: Let me know if you get your own list up. I’d love to connect with more moms. I know there’s many more out there that I didn’t name.

This is my blog that I have about my journey as a young latina single-mother while pursuing my educational goals at the University of Central Florida, majoring in Legal Studies. I’m also a full-time working mommy and tweet like crazy as Vida_de_Chiqa on Twitter.
