The #DataLadies of Twitter...

Inspired by the Webbiquity post called "The Nifty 50 Top Women of Twitter for 2011" and the #DataLadies hashtag I've been using to flag the DataGeeks of the kinder sex, I decided to compile a list of the #DataLadies I follow on twitter.

So, in no particular order, I present to you some of my favorite #DataLadies on twitter to follow...
