        Oh look, it’s one of THESE lists again.

        The last one of these I saw, I used it for an experiment. I made sure I was following the top 20, then over 10 days I looked at the kind of stuff they were tweeting, and if it was of any use and relevence (to web design/development).

        And what a surprise, most of them tweeted utter bollocks.

        Here’s my list of 5 (from your list of 50):
        @sixrevisions, @sazzy, @chrisspooner, @paddydonnelly, @boagworld.

          Agree with Jason. A lot on the list tweet merely personal things (going to make groceries, soon client meeting, highscore on game Bla and so on). Nice, but hardly useful.

          In my very humble opinion designers worth being followed:

          Mix between links and personal

          Only tweets bout design, art, photography etc.

        Rachel- Walter Apai has never designed anything- he bought the url and spammed his way into recognition. He hires writers and knows nothing about web design himself. This is a paid placement like every other reference to him on the web.

    This list is totally incomplete – missing many important people like Ryan Carson (owner of @Carsonified), Soh Tanaka (@sohtanaka), Dan Cederholm (@simplebits) of Dribbble & SimpleBits, Molly Horzschlag (@mollydotcom), Jina Bolton (@jina) etc. and has lots of spam-filled twitterfeed people in it too.

    Dainis from 1stWebdesigner.com??

    Come on..he is just a blogger,even he is not writing anything in his blog

    You add many ”only” design blog owners not designers

    Being a web designer means something different

    Thanks for this amazing list WDL, and Mariusz. Ofcourse the list isn’t complete, nearly everyone has a Twitter account nowadays, and there are way more than 50 web designers on Twitter definitely… As said in the last paragraph ^_^

    Once again, great list! I enjoy reading what these sort of people post 😉

    What’s up with the lack of content on Web Designer Depot for the last couple of days, not to mention quality? I see typos all over this article. Copy edit! I want meaningful articles, not halfhearted lists where the only text is straight off the website being featured.

  5. Aaron Irizarry Reply

    Wow… thanks for the include on this list. I am humbled to be include with such awesome people.

    Thank God this list is alphabetical cause I certainly dont deserve to be near the top.

    Thanks again!

    ~ Aaron I

    ✎…Thanks for the addy i found this list really useful 🙂

    Print or prepress designers may also want to follow @MelindaKiba 😀


  7. Liz Reply

    thanks for including me! It mustve been tough to narrow it down to 50, there are so many great community members on Twitter.. so that fact that I made the cute is shocking and flattering.

    Any of ya’ll reading this looking for more “honorable mentions” id suggest @nikibrown and @joshuamauldin and @designcoyote.

    I have to agree w/ a number of the replies here…this list is sorta lacking. And there are some questionable folks included who likely won’t be providing much more than links to their own ad-driven blogs. Some of my suggestions would include: Jesse Bennett Chamberlain (@jessebc), Cameron Moll (@cameronmoll), Jason Fried (@jasonfried), etc. etc.

    I love how some of these people have websites with splash pages saying they’re “rebranding” and they’ll be “back in xxx of 2009!”. I don’t care how busy you are, if you can’t keep your own website up to date I don’t consider YOU up to date either.

    There are literally thousands of great designers out there but narrowing it down to a popularity contest like this usually does rub people the wrong way – unless of course they’re on the special list.

    A huge number of Twitter profiles here are not even worth following. I suggest you guys check out @thelimedesign on twitter. He does not have a design blog but his designing skills are stupendous.

    its is certain a lot of people will be left out. It is possible some might not deserve the spot… but they must have done something to be here. So people, lets give it up for them.
    Lovely post.
