Top Ten: Women Warriors of Twitter

Warrior, femme fatale, however, you slice it, some ladies got more game than others. Whether they fight in stilettos or tennis shoes, these chicks can tweet circles around most people. Remember the Sirens of Ancient Greece? What would Odysseus have done if they could not only sing but tweet? These are ten of Twitter's prettiest and fiercest females whose tweets can either freeze or melt hearts.

1. Serena Williams

Marissa combines beauty and brains to both conquer and heat up the geeks at Google. Hired as Google's first female programmer, Marissa quickly rose through the ranks. At 34 is a Vice President of Google overseeing everything from Google Maps to Google Earth. Don't let her good looks deceive you - when everyone urged her to change the design of Google, she went toe to toe with the boys, and she and Google came out on top. @MarissaMayer has discovered how to amplify her tweets to amass a following. With only 7 tweets, Marissa has 4,795 followers. 685 followers per tweet is pretty powerful. Maybe Marissa should govern California. Who knew a search engine could be so well packaged?
