Earlier this year I created a "personal CRM" using Airtable, collecting data about each person I follow on Twitter such as company, location, and gender using a virtual assistant. Curious, I reviewed the gender makeup and found that 79% of the people I follow (most of which work in tech) are men. I wrote about this discovery and have since sought to add more diversity to those I follow going forward. This tool makes it far easier to get an estimation of this. I'd encourage everyone to give it a try and would love to see others report their findings in the comments here.

This is interesting. It'd be great to have something actionable on the other side once you analyze your account. "Here's a twitter list of tech women" for instance
Interesting how it estimates gender apparently quite accurately, either by pronouns in the bio or passing the first name to a gender guessing library.

Love it! My results were pretty even for both people I follow and my followers. People I follow: Nonbinary = 1% Men = 55% Women = 44% My Followers: Nonbinary = 1% Men = 49% Women = 50%

Interesting to see the male/female ratio when it comes to people I follow and the people who follow me. My results are: People I follow: men 74% women 24% Followers: men 70% women 29% The last year I have been interested in following other female founders (in tech) and I'm curious to see the results of others, especially of other women. The percentages give a good boost to continue to engage with other females on Twitter with the same interests.
