Twitter for C++ Programmers (updated)

Twitter for C++ Programmers (updated)

Jan 23 2015
Author:

This small post is for those programmers who use Twitter or are just about to start doing this. I'm sure developers will find some useful information here.

I already wrote about Twitter some time ago. More than a year has passed since then, so I think now is a good time for me to write an updated and extended version of that post.

I ignored Twitter for a long time, for it didn't seem to be of any interest at all. When I was only getting started with it, I found it to be just a collection of meaningless information, cats' photos and people's opinions on topics I was absolutely not interested in. I tried to think of someone to follow but it only occurred to me to follow Zadornov's page (he's a Russian humorist artist). So, I failed to make friends with Twitter at first.

However, I gradually got to know it better and even managed to attract more than three hundred followers somehow. But it's not the point of this post. Now I'll be brief and tell you what it's all about.

So, you are a C++ programmer. If you are wondering if you can find something interesting for yourself on Twitter, I have a few tips for you.

First, you can use hashtags to search for interesting posts and, therefore, subscribe to pages of those authors whose links and comments you like to read. I suggest checking the following:

  • #cpp
  • #cplusplus
  • #cpp11 , #cpp14 , #cpp17
  • #programming
  • #opensource
  • #coding
  • #dev
  • #developers
  • #appsec
  • #visualc
  • #security
  • #github
  • #clang
  • #cert
  • #cppcon

Also, you may want to follow these people/organizations:
