Alan, interesting question - why are these women not on Twitter? However, I disagree with writing about your "gut feeling" that they are less powerful than they could be because they do not use Twitter. Have you run the same comparison with the most powerful men and their use of Twitter? How about the use of other social media platforms by both groups? Have you found any interviews or other media where these business women discuss use of social media and/or Twitter to understand why they may not choose this medium?
Your points about why they should be on Twitter are on the mark - but this is not specific to Twitter. More visibility and voice in general, across multiple media platforms would boost women's presence in conversations about and perception of business leadership.
