Best Web Developer Accounts to Follow on Twitter?

I have recently been trying to increase my social media presence in the web developer community, but am having trouble gaining traction. I tweet on a regular basis but without any followers yet I feel as if I am shouting into the void.

I have been following loads of "programmers" but I thought I'd ask the DEV community who they follow. Any and all recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Also, I have linked my DEV profile below so feel free to give me a follow or a shout!

To be honest this list is a lot longer than expected. I'm not really focussed on gaining followers myself but I tend to follow people who post stuff I'm interested in at the time. Your account is very new so right now the most important thing is to produce valuable to entertaining content on a regular basis.

Good luck on your journey!
