The best is not to follow developers but community. Most of the time tweets are personal and waste but tweets tagged to communities are good source.

Follow Twitter account of dev.to, Ubuntu, Linux, Google etc. There you can find good active developers ...

Yes, and now on Twitter, you can follow topics.

Nevertheless, I would recommend to follow @dhh, creator of Ruby on Rails and founder of Basecamp. He always speaks his mind, and it is refreshing. :-)

I love this recent one from him for instance :

And me of course if you want to have news about AppSec. But I would recommend to follow me on dev.to. ;-)

I agree with this. I'm quite a technical person but most of the time I use Twitter just to discuss current affairs or talk to Yorkshire Tea. It can be hard to only post technical stuff, and to do so regularly enough to "be relevant". It becomes almost like managing a brand. It would've taken me longer to write something useful about ESP8266 than it took me to fix an issue I had with it yesterday, so I didn't tweet about it.

@wesbos @monicalent @hhg2288 @ryanchenkie @b0rk @AnjanaVakil @weibenfalk @kyleshevlin @sarah_edo @jsjoeio @manuelbieh @emmabostian @dan_abramov @cszhu @abbyfuller @toddmotto @bendhalpern @aspittel @hugojmd @stolinski

Most of them have Software Development content in their timelines but sometimes they post about their struggles, their downfalls, their new jobs or evens jokes, always with respect and cheering others in beign better developers. For me thats the type of people I want to read on my TL.

Hmm, I do have a few. I regularly enjoy posts from @molly_struve, @vaidehijoshi, @NoBugsHare, @bendhalpern (of course!), @MissAmaraKay, @munificentbob, and @gregcons.

I'm sure there are many more, but it's hard to distill my Twitter feed quickly. :P

Also, shameless self-promotion: I post original, mostly programming-related content on a daily basis: @codemouse92

@notch, the only reason to have twitter.

But while you're at it, might as well follow:
@horse_rust
@horse_js
@horse_js_ctx

(don't be afraid to click, the links take you to 🐦, not dev.to/:user)

Been building up my list for a while. Some are are writers, others have a unique perspective, slight chance of some solid Animal Crossing content (sorry)

@ChloeCondon @ReinH @markdalgleish @aarondjents @blackroomsec @DynamicWebPaige @IanColdwater

The list goes on and on but these are some of the names I see the most and offer a lot of great stuff. And of course if you still aren't following people like @SwiftOnSecurity, @hacks4pancakes, or @cassidoo you're really missing out.
