50 Amazing DEV people to follow on Twitter

madza profile image Madza ・2 min read

Twitter, like other social media, brings like-minded people together.
Here I have compiled a list of 50 awesome people to follow in tech-Twitter.

I'm looking for some additional input, too!
What would YOU recommend to follow?

am aware of Emma Bostian and I recognise Lynn Fisher from a creative website roundup.

Who is everyone else?

As I am on mobile, going through each one without more specific context is, well, daunting.

For example, personally I have no real interest for CSS art or say, cybersecurity, and would skip any focused primarily on this.

Nevertheless, you have compiled a long list here, there is bound to be some gems hidden.

Thanks :)


I also think that more context is actually necessary :)


Hope you will find something for your taste as well πŸ˜‰


I think any list like this would be improved by flagging or excluding people from DEV who we'll see anyway, and with a simple line or two explaining what it is that makes them interesting to you. If I click through and discover someone's latest 20 tweets are about their new puppy it might be fun, but unrelated to anything developy.


Good point πŸ‘ Tbh, my initial thought was to include some lines on content posted or even include the header with description what each profile is about, tho I ended up thinking it might be too much of a stalker material πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So I just included the links of my personal favs and left the evaluation part for each reader in their side πŸ˜‰
But I will keep this in mind when creating some new posts with lists on different topics in future πŸ˜‰


I'm surprised SwiftOnSecurity isn't there ( already big enough?). Great and entertaining tweets about infosec / windows / corn facts!

edit: Oh, the title says it's about DEV people


Oh I didn't notice it was about people from here!


Thanks for the addition! πŸ‘


These are not really developers, but I couldn't help but share these lists:
