A couple of Twitter ‘badass women’ themselves, @HowellMarketing and @AdamsConsulting, have compiled a list of their ‘Twitter Top 75 Badass Women’ – and I was completely surprised to find myself on the list.
Their definition of ‘badass’ is a bit different than most (see below); I’m very honored to have been included in this category! And, I think I’m the lone ‘horse person’ on the list – you can read below why I think that’s a good thing for the equine industry.
Normally I’d just include a link to the news release I sent out via the American Horse Publications (AHP) newsgroup, but since news releases are only archived at the AHP site for a few months, I’m including the full text below. If you’re on Twitter, you might want to check out the list – there are some really awesome & interesting women there!
Lisa Kemp Named One Of ‘Twitter’s Top 75 Badass Women’
What does Lisa Kemp have in common with Alyssa Milano and Adventure Girl? They’re all ‘Twitter badasses’ according to a new list at BitRebel.com.
Compiled by Atlanta-based Diana Adams of Adams Consulting Group, Inc. and Amy Howell of Howell Marketing Strategies in Memphis, Tenn., the list includes entrepreneurs, moms, and wives; single chicks and creative types; and female movers and shakers from across the U.S. and beyond. The pair had a ‘selection criteria’ of ‘like-minded, talented, hard working, smart women’ who inspire them on a daily basis. Here’s what they had to say about the list:
This list is different from most of the ones you’ll find. These aren’t the most popular women, or the women with the most followers. This is a list of women who are making it happen day in and day out, and they are tweeting their butts off in the process. They share and care consistently, and are always there to engage with their followers.
These women are badasses because their style is instantly recognizable, and they exude confidence and humility whether they have 100 followers or 1,000,000 followers. Like a pair of good sunglasses or your favorite pair of jeans, they just feel good, and they know how to make others around them feel special.
As the lone equine industry representative on the list, Lisa is thrilled to be included, not only for herself but also for what it means to the horse world.
“I love it when horse stuff ‘crosses over’ into the mainstream. To me, it’s always an opportunity to expose others to what’s great about horses and why we love them so much, to invite them into our world to experience what it’s about. I’m honored to be included with such a great group of women, and only hope I can live up to the title of ‘Twitter badass.’”

Twitter is a free social media ‘microblogging’ site, where ‘blog posts’ (called ‘tweets’) are limited to 140 characters per post. Since going online in 2006, Twitter has seen phenomenal growth; from 400,000 tweets per quarter in 2007, to 65 million tweets daily in June, 2010. This translates to about 750 tweets per second. Twitter is estimated to have over 190 million users worldwide. (source: Wikipedia.com)
