You know what I like most about twitter? That it has the power of RSS feeds while keeping the conversational (and fun) aspect that made chat and email so popular.

Twitter has become so widely adopted that as a researcher you can find very useful info in real time. And fortunately, technology and design are two very popular subjects in Twitter. For this article, I selected a group of 20 great Twitter accounts you should follow to be up to date, and in contact, with top quality Photoshop, Photography and Design informational sources.

Development01 Network: @development01

I will start with my own Twitter account. The Development01 Network is a group of sites that I own and manage myself. The most important of those sites are Photoshop Roadmap and Creative Closeup. In my Twitter account I tweet everyday about Photoshop tutorials and design resources. From time to time I engage on certain conversations, but mostly I provide useful and interesting links.
