Developers to follow on Twitter

May 2019 · Riga, Latvia · comments

The list was updated in 2022.

In addition to books and conferences, Twitter is my primary source of inspiration. Unfortunately, some developers don’t use Twitter because they find it too noisy. To improve the situation, I decided to compile a list of 20 high-quality Twitter accounts with good signal vs. noise ratio.

No cats, politics, and selfies allowed.
