UX Folks We Follow On Twitter (and You Should Too)

Here are some of the UX tweeters that we find to be most useful, hilarious, and insightful. 

Here at OHO Interactive we love everything about UX, but we know that we’re not the only ones. There’s an active community of UX and product designers that love talking about the most recent trends on the web, but sometimes they are too difficult to find on a giant platform like Twitter. Look no longer! Here are some of the UX tweeters that we find to be most useful, hilarious, and insightful.
