January 2011 could not pass without sharing my appreciation for these Tweeters. The list below are the top 5 Twitter accounts for servant leadership content in 2010. I’ve gained a lot from these sources and recommend them to anyone interested in new content and ideas for the only real form of leadership. You can follow these and many servant leadership practitioners, in my Twitter Servant Leadership List.

1. Dr. Jack King (@DrJackKing)
Twitter Bio: We are put in this world not to be better than the next man but rather help him be better than he was when we met. HS Dad (4 little ladies). Love is the answer.
Where to begin? Dr. King is a great proponent of servant leadership and the founder of the NorthFork Center for Servant Leadership (link above). In his work at the center, King established Servant Hearts Thursdays - a program of guest blog posts from servant leadership proponents in different circles. Specific to Twitter though, he is a regular re-tweeter of great content from many sources. He’s also famous for his positive rants – when he gets something on his mind, you will receive a great flow of quotes, links and original insights into a given topic, such as motivation, selflessness and love. Thank you, Jack, for all you contribute to servant leadership awareness and adoption through Twitter.
My thanks to all of you for your great many contributions!
