I recently used Favstar to compile a list of 19 favorite links from people who frequently tweet about journalism. I plugged in users whom I fndou engaging and discovered that tweets from women on that list were not being “favorited” by many other Twitter users. Journalist and blogger Andria Krewson also noticed this disparity and suggested a few female users to include.
Those observations spurred a bit of research that found male journalists being followed three times more than their female colleagues. That post, in turn, sparked a #followwomenjournas movement and now, this list of decidedly feminine most-favorited tweets.
Please take the time to visit the Favstar page for each journalist. You’ll see that most of the tweets listed here were only favorited by two or three users.
