With the ever growing popularity of Twitter it’s no surprise to see that a lot of designers and developers have adopted Twitter and use it to connect with other designers and share links, quotes, ideas, etc…
So, since I’m addicted to typography, I thought I’d share my list of people I follow. This list contains only typography related Twitter users. Some are typeface designers, others represent type foundries and some exist to share news about typography and other related topics.
I hope you find this post useful! Please keep in mind that this is by no means a complete list so I invite you to leave a comment at the bottom of this post and let me know who I forgot. This list is in no particular order. :)
