More About the Author

Claire Díaz-Ortiz is an author, speaker, and technology innovator who has been named one of the 100 Most Creative People in Business by Fast Company. Claire was an early employee at Twitter, where she was hired to lead corporate social innovation.

In Claire's work, she has been called everything from "The Woman Who Got the Pope on Twitter" (Wired) and "Twitter's Pontiff Recruitment Chief" (The Washington Post) to a "Force for Good" (Forbes) and one of the "Ten Most Generous in Social Media" (Fast Company). Claire is also known for the precarious honor of being the first to live-tweet her own child's birth. (Hello, @Lucia!)

Claire is the author of several books, including Twitter for Good: Change the World One Tweet at a Time, which explores the TWEET model framework she is known for developing to help organizations and individuals best excel on Twitter. She has also written Greater Expectations: Succeed (and Stay Sane) in an On-Demand, All-Access, Always-On Age, Hope Runs: An American Tourist, A Kenyan Boy, a Journey of Redemption, and a handful of ebooks.

She is a frequent international speaker on business, innovation and social media, and has been invited to deliver trainings and keynotes at such varied organizations and events as The United Nations, Verizon, Toyota, South by Southwest, TEDx, The Mashable Social Good Summit, and many others. (Go here to find out more about her speaking engagements.)

Her popular business blog at www.ClaireDiazOrtiz.com boasts more than 100,000 monthly readers. She is also a LinkedIn Influencer, one of 300 hundred global leaders chosen to provide original content for the LinkedIn platform.

Claire holds an MBA from Oxford University, where she was a Skoll Foundation Scholar for Social Entrepreneurship, and has a BA and an MA in Anthropology from Stanford University.

She is the co-founder of Hope Runs, a non-profit organization operating in AIDS orphanages in Kenya.

Claire has lived on four continents and traveled to more than fifty countries. She used to run marathons, but now it makes her tired just to think about that. She is a foster mom to a Kenyan teen, an extreme introvert, and a crazy reader (she reads 200 books a year). She also boasts an unnatural passion for tiny houses and rooibos tea.

She has appeared widely in major television and print news sources like CNN, BBC, Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, Good Morning America, The Today Show, the Washington Post, Fortune, Forbes, Wired and many others.

Find her via @claire on Twitter, on LinkedIn, or at claire@clairediazortiz.com.

Loved this manifesto on social media marketing from Diaz-Ortiz. Simple, fun, easy to follow, clever. She's a social media whiz.

This is a great short guide to social media. Which is all I had the attention span for--Funny, inspired, and worth the price. Diaz Ortiz is very adept at consolidating all she knows on the subject into a format I can use.

Anyone who uses social media needs to read this. Short, witty, chalk full of common sense. We all know people who make these mistakes. Maybe time to gift them a copy?

I enjoyed reading this engaging work. I have nothing to promote but I was curious to find out the do's and don't of the social media. I am a late comer to the online media and figured I could use all the help I can get.

Claire Diaz-Ortiz is an accomplished writer. Her work is succinct and interesting and just a bit snarky which gives her writings an edge. I imagine her life will be one of sharing new discoveries. Anyone who delivers a manifesto, obviously believes she has something worthwhile to share. I agree.

Witty, conversational guide to the dos and don'ts of social media. Enjoyed the tone and content very much. Pictures/Artwork were also great.
