Twitter is awesome. Google+ is great for photographs and deep discussions from geeks of all kinds – and it has a fantastic Android app – but Twitter is still the king when it comes to quick bites of info, breadth vs. depth, and commentary on what’s happening right now.
Here’s a collection of Android enthusiasts that I enjoy following on Twitter. I hope you find a few new tweeps to follow, and I hope you’ll share your favourites with me, too!
These accounts are run by the Android team, either as official Google accounts, or as personal accounts for Google employees.
@Android – The official Android Twitter account, tweeting news, tips, and tricks. Often retweets other official Android accounts.
@GoogleMobile – Not limited to Android, this account covers general Google Mobile topics. Doesn’t tweet as often as you might expect, though.
@googlenexus – News about the Google Nexus line, and tweets relevant to Nexus owners.
We’ve started rolling out Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, to Nexus S phones on a number of carriers with more to come. Enjoy! android.com/whatsnew/
@clockworkmod – If you’re familiar with CyanogenMod, you’re probably familiar with ClockworkMod, a tool which gives your Android a different boot mode and allows you to backup, restore, and modify what’s on the device.
Okay, we don’t all tweet about Android all the time, but we’re all fans, and we’re all interested in the latest news. Click our Twitter handles to see our Twitter pages and our full names to see our posts on this site:
It’s times like this that I wish I’d been adding people to Twitter lists in the same way that I add them to Google+ circles – I know there are a few great Android tweeps that I follow that haven’t made it onto this list. On top of that, there must be loads of great Android enthusiasts on Twitter that I’m not even aware of!
If you have any suggestions for people to add to this list, please leave them in the comments. I think we’ll have to write “50 More Android Tweeps to Follow on Twitter” pretty soon!
