To make a name for yourself these days, social media matters.

In no particular order, here are 10 local social impact leaders of color who realize that and are using Twitter to keep us entertained and informed. (This article was inspired by a similar roundup by Technical.ly DC.)

1. Yasmine Mustafa

The ROAR for Good cofounder rocks. We all know this. But she really rocks on Twitter, where she mixes relevant news with the slightest amount of ironic self-deprecation.

2. Kai Davis

Acclaimed local poet, The Philly Pigeon Collective member and recent Temple grad’s account is sprinkled with performance vids and hefty statements against the world’s brutality toward POC.

3. Archna Sahay

The city’s director of entrepreneurial investment’s feed is a wealth of business inspiration …

… and a helluva lot of Philly love.

4. Brigitte Daniel 

The Mogulette founder is all about getting young women of color into tech and has done a ton of speaking around the issue. Catch her latest clips and quotes in one place.

5. Omar Woodard

The GreenLight Fund Philadelphia ED’s tweets are delightful because they’re so blatantly enthusiastic about the things he cares about, whether it’s the Olympics, the critical reception of “Suicide Squad” or his professional work. Plus, he had a really weird combo of #firstsevenjobs.

6. 900AM WURD

The state’s only Black-owned talk radio station Periscopes its interviews!

7. Maria Quiñones-Sánchez

Call the councilwoman the Selfie Queen — especially during #DNCinPHL.

8. Ursula Rucker

The renowned poet’s feed is one long call to social action.

9. Mitchell Little 

The Twitter of the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity executive director is a retweeted one-stop shop for community empowerment- and opportunity-related Philly news.

10. Tayyib Smith

The well-connected Institute of Hip-Hop Entrepreneurship founder posts a lot of music, a lot of articles about social justice, and a lot of pics at events we’re not cool enough to get into.

Also, this, because it makes us laugh.
