Jane Garvey presents a look back at the guests and subjects on Woman's Hour that inspired the most comment in 2011 via Twitter.

Presented by Jane Garvey. This is a look back at the guests and subjects on Woman's Hour that inspired the most comment this year via Twitter. Perhaps inevitably some of it is not for the fainthearted, including a frank interview with Joan Collins, and the moment where Tracey Emin asked Jenni an extremely personal question, as well as some of the funnier moments of the year. To discuss Woman's Hour on Twitter Jane Garvey is joined by Kate Bussmann, who has written the first ever social media almanac, Dr Ruth Page, of the University of Leicester, who has completed an extensive study of the use of social media by women celebrities and by the actress Lorelei King who loves to 'tweavesdrop.' Also on the programme: Grace Dent, Mona Eltahawy, Nancy Dell'Olio, Giorgio Locatelli, Joan Smith, Liz Jones and Mitch Benn. We'll hear why female masturbation is still taboo, why women like horses, why beards are back and why tattoos are so popular.
