20 Twitter Accounts of Amazing Photographers to Follow

Share on Pinterest

A photographer as a creator can find inspiration everywhere – in nature, everyday routine work, conversation to the friends, or browsing the web. Twitter is a great source of inspiration when it comes to sharing information of any kind and connecting to the people from all over the world.

Twitter allows you to send a short 140-character message to anyone you want ranging from a girl living next door to a rock star whose poster you keep on the wall. The limitation in number of characters makes you keep your messages simple. Simple is good sometimes.
