Top 100 Social Entrepreneurs, Businesses, and Ideas on Twitter

Twitter is here to stay.  In the past few months site usage has increased dramatically, over 55% from January 2009 to February 2009.  Users include Barrack Obama, CNN,  and TechCrunch.

Twitter is a microblogging platform which connects users and allows them to share what they are doing- in 140 characters or less.  The site empowers individuals, companies, and even the government to interact with their core constituents.

This includes social entrepreneurs, businesses, and ideas.  Twitter is a powerful means for social entrepreneurs to inform others of the positive change they are creating in the world.  At SocialEarth, we wanted to promote social entrepreneurs and social organizations who are currently using Twitter.   While some of the users may not be classified as a social entrepreneur in the traditional sense,  we sought users who were genuinely interesting in increasing human welfare via their work. The list categories are: Education, Grants, Green, Humanitarian, Media, Microfinance,  and Social Entrepreneurs.
