25 Most Popular Web Designers on Twitter

by admin on Apr 15, 2009

Do you know the influence that popular Web designers have on others? You can determine their influence, in part, by the number of people who follow them on Twitter. Granted, not all Web designers have a Twitter account, and you may not have heard of some of the highest-ranked Web designers listed below. This list provides Twitter contact information for the most popular Web designers who use this social media tool.

We used two lists to extract this information: 50+ Designers to Follow on Twitter at Vandelay Design and 100 Web Designers to Follow on Twitter at Digital Labz. We realized, shortly into both lists, that anyone with less than 2,000 followers would not make the cut. But, there are many Web designers in the 2,000-3,000 follower category worth following as well — and, some who have less than 500 followers who may soon rival those listed below. The list below is defined by followers, with the most popular at the top.
