Power list after power list fail to represent women as influential in social media and in society at large. Why is it that women are not considered influential on social media and particularly on Twitter? To understand why, we we must answer a few basic questions: What does influence mean? How is it measured? And most importantly, by whom? What do you think about this issue?
These questions are raised in an article of mine published in The Independent today.
