Domain Investor Makes List of Top 100 Entrepreneurs to Follow on Twitter

According to, domain investor Sharon Hayes is one of the top 100 entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter. If you don’t know Sharon (I believe I met her briefly at DomainFest), she is a Co-Founder and CEO at Domainate, a privately held domain investment company. Her Twitter handle is @sharonhayes.

For November, Sharon is currently ranked #86 on the list,  which is updated  monthly by Evan Carmichael. Martha Stewart is the #1 entrepreneur to follow on the list. Other well known entrepreneurs on the list include Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, NYC mayor Mike Bloomberg, and business mogul Ivanka Trump.

Sharon has been involved in the domain industry since the late 1990’s, and according to her corporate profile, she “has personally sold over 12,000 domain names excluding bulk sales.” She co-founded Domainate with Steve Jones, and the duo also founded a two day intensive introduction to domain investing called Domain Bootcamp.

Congratulations to Sharon!

Thanks to Donna Mahony for sharing the link with me.

  1. What is the criteria used to come up with this list?

    Just by skimming the list, it looks like he is checking for combination of “Entrepreneur” keyword in the twitter profile, number of followers and number of tweets. Did he take into consideration the quality of tweets related to entrepreneurship?

  2. I don’t understand how the list has been prepared. #2@realpreityzinta is a Bollywood Actor, and #3 @YUVSTRONG12 is a Indian Cricket Player!.. I may be wrong in assessing this list, but I would like to know how a sportsman can be in this list!
