Designers to Follow on Twitter

I knew Twitter was truly everywhere when my mother called me up a few days ago and asked “What’s Twitter? Should I get an account?” With celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Seth Rogen, and- most, recently- Oprah embracing the service, it’s no surprise.

With all the hype, it’s easy to forget what Twitter ultimately is: a powerful tool. A friend recently likened Twitter to “Facebook, without all the b.s.”- and he’s partly right. It connects people instantly- which is why it works so well for celebrities, putting them directly in contact with their fans.

As designers, of course, we have our own “celebrities”- they’re other designers, those whose work we are inspired by, and who can help us solve the type of design problems we’re faced with every day. Here are some of my favorite designers to follow on Twitter:

If you tweet about design, please leave your twitter address in the comments (mine is ilorraine)- or suggest your own favorite designers on Twitter.

    Nothing terrifies me more than the thought of my mother on twitter… or any other social networking site.

    Twitter is the newest craze today. i tweet at least 5 times a day on my friends just to keep them informed about my whereabouts. I still keep my personal blog though. ..

    i love to Twitter my day to day activities. Twitter is much better than blogging because it is direct to the point and does not require you to type so many unnecessary words.
