For our most recent BuildBetter publication, we created an ultimate Comprehensive Java Developer’s Resource Guide. Not only does this feature awesome tools that help Java devs develop, monitor performance, find errors, and distribute messages, it also includes other Java Developer-related content – namely Java Developer Twitter .
We love Twitter – seriously, it’s our favorite way to reach developers across the globe. With over 328 million active users at the end of Q1 2017, sometimes finding relevant influencers to follow is pretty overwhelming. Even with something as simple as Twitter, we’re here to help developers build an awesome social circle.
Here are 12 active Java influencers that you should be following on Twitter:
Nick Craver is an architecture lead, developer, site reliability engineer for Stack Exchange. He’d probably appreciate a thank you for keeping Stack Overflow up and Running.

We know that developers don’t have much time to do anything else but build – that’s where we come in. We believe that it’s our personal responsibility to help developers work better, code better, and build better careers. After all, that is our motto. Even if we’re just helping in Twitter.
