UX CALENDAR – DECEMBER 23 – 17 Twitter Accounts for Product Designers

Twitter can be a great tool for designers looking to stay up to date on the latest trends, learn or for inspiration.

Very often, when people ask me where I go to keep myself constantly up to date on the latest design practices and I answer Twitter, I always get the same answers:

 "Oh yes ? I hate Twitter, it's a super negative social network”

“There are only haters on it”

"I don't know how you find interesting people on Twitter"


I was in this case too. First of all, we must see Twitter as a tool and not as an evil social network that sucks our soul and takes us into the spiral of haters and negativism. And like every tool, you just have to learn how to use it to get the most out of it.

  1. Clean up your timeline

To date, the only parameter that is really useful to me is the “mute and block”. 

Just go to settings > Privacy & safety > Mute & block. You will then find different settings to hide certain accounts or terms from your timeline. For my part, for example, I have silenced most of the accounts and terms related to politics, sport or religion. Then little by little I hide the accounts that do not seem interesting to me. Over time, my timeline has been refined and allows me today to be really relevant.

In the timeline, it is directly possible to block or mute an account.
