    My answer is that Twitter is a better resource if you follow the right people who bubble up the stuff worth reading. I don't care about the community aspect per se because I find web folks to be mostly strange.

      Who would you recommend following on Twitter?

        I’d recommend following design team accounts of products you like, anyone from Basecamp, low-key grunts from non-unicorns and then you’ll get enough recommendations to snowball. It’s a pruning process. I tend to avoid freelance “celeb” designers tho because they mostly tweet lifestyle / self help porn.

          well said. Every time I discover a new "celeb" designer and try to find examples of their work, cannot find anything. Every time. They are more of "content creators" than designers

      Yeah love having my design chat punctuated by political hot takes.

      Why do Twitter addicts always try and push their crap website on dying communities as the answer. "follow the right people" there are no right people on twitter. it's all trash.
