Twitter can definitely educate the Android Developer you are. 140 characters or less by the distinguished Android experts can put a new perspective right into your head.

Choose the right people to follow

It is as easy as following 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 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.

They also:

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
