After publishing my list and infographic of 161 Black women in tech to follow on Twitter last week, I’ve heard from various people who have suggested others.

I also realized that I totally forgot to include my Angels/Investors category altogether which featured a woman referenced much in the piece. Doh!

Therefore, I’ve updated it to include the following people. You can see the new Infographic featuring 185 Black Women on Twitter below this list.

  • […] There is a stereotype that exists when you think of tech savvy people and Black Women do not come to most peoples minds. This list has changed the game entirely, now this tech list curators don’t have to wonder if Black Women exist in the tech world, we know they do, and we have a list that says so. From CEO’s, app creators, philanthropist, editors, brand strategist, graphic designers, and so much more, you name it they do it. There aren’t enough thank you’s in the world or hugs and kisses to send to Jeneba for creating this amazing list. I sure am glad that a Black Woman decided to take the time out to create a list of so many powerful Black Women who we can tweet and follow. The list is below, share it, and be sure to visit Jeneba’s personal site to get the full list and backgrounds on each of these amazing women Jeneba Speaks. […]

  • Thank you for this, Jeneba.

  • Of course, Anjuan! Thanks for commenting!

  • This is amazing! Thank you so much for this. it’s IMPORTANT for sisters to see. :)

  • Thanks for commenting. Thanks. I agree. It’s key to see black female techies aren’t unicorns.
