Twitter can definitely educate the Android Developer you are. It is as easy as to follow the right people and then just checking their regular insights in your feed.
The only thing that remains is how to choose the right people. And we can try to help you with that. With the help of our Android developers, we’ve put together THE list.
We have chosen only active accounts of famous devs you shouldn’t miss out on and even not-so-famous ones worth of your feed.
Why did we choose these names? Because these all-around-world Android developers are not only experts but super complex human beings.
a) do public speaking
b) volunteer in e.g. the Peace Corps
c) create hackathons for children
d) are self-taught programmers
e) and support the community.
Important thing is, you’ll have your daily supply of what’s new in very immense Android universe only by following these people.
List of Twitter accounts of Android dev definitely worth checking out

Amit Shekhar @amitiitbhu
Co-Founder at @MindOrks
Very important learning for me in the last few years:
Learn a new thing when it actually required. Do not just learn to learn. Because when you actually implement in a project, you get the deep knowledge of that.#AndroidDev #developers #Entrepreneurs #coder #programmer #skills

Staff Engineer at @SlackHQ
Before Slack, @valera_zakharov used to work at Google and Microsoft.
I've heard skepticism about code coverage as a code health indicator and I agree that it's no panacea. But I'd be surprised if you wouldn't want to know which classes in your codebase have no coverage; especially if you normalize the data with complexity, churn and usage stats.
