  1. I am so honored, Eric! But my info is outdated? It should be: “Social Media Director, Mayor @AnniseParker & @HoustonTXdotgov”. NO WORRIES, got nothin’ but love f’ya! My Twitter handle has also changed: @MelissaLovesHOU . Thanks for curating this list!

  2. Hey Eric! I am soo excited to have made the list! My new handle is @ohitzlilia, and I am currently Account Manager/Social Media Strategist at @PatriotAdvINC. 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Eric – what an honor! I’m thrilled to be here among some truly great professionals! I’d love it if you could update my Twitter to @PolkaDotImpress – it’s the more accurate profile for me! Again, I’m really excited to have made the list! Thanks for all you do, Eric!

  4. Reblogged this on Blog = (Brandon's)log and commented:
    Yours truly enters the list at #77! This is a huge deal. Even for someone who’s been doing social media for a little over two years. To get recognized amongst other social media professionals in the 4th largest city in the U.S speaks volumes. Thanks again Eric!

  5. Thanks, Eric! Glad to be part of the list again. I wanted to alert you that I’m now at NWN Corporation.

    Many thanks for the work you put into this list and the support you provide our community!

  6. Maybe, I’ll make it next year. I see some other bloggers made the list this year. I’ll keep working in social media. Thanks for the list, it gives me great people to follow!

  7. What a great list (and useful resource) for borrowing ideas! I’m proud to have grown (my company’s) social media following by more than 700% since taking the lead in January!
