Black Twitter Responds to Fast Company’s ’25 Smartest Women On Twitter’ List

#SmartBlackWomenOfTwitter dominates Twitter timelines

Fast Company released a list yesterday showcasing the smartest women on Twitter. Call it what you want (ahem, a blatant disregard for the top Twitter users, may be fitting), the website for the well-known business magazine “tried it,” however, social heavyweights from Black Twitter didn’t miss a beat and were on hand to correct the popular zine’s oversight. The list, largely dominated by white women, has a sprinkle of color and  birthed the hashtag #SmartBlackWomenOfTwitter which was created by @FeministaJones.  It also sparked lists filled with smart, savvy and innovative women on the popular platform created by Colorlines.com and HuffPost Black Voices, among other sites. Here, BlackEnterprise.com tracks the conversation—see what folks had to say about Fast Company’s slip-up:
