There are articles all over the internet about what Twitter is doing right and what Twitter is doing wrong. Who they've fired, what they're adding to the app, or why they're bond to succeed or fail. When it comes to these topics I just know what I read, but what I do know from experience is that Twitter is an amazing place for someone who is transitioning into coding.
People are usually kind. They are twitter chats for new coders, like the #CodeNewbie chats on Wednesday's. You can follow VentureBeat, Tech Crunch, New York Times Technology, Wired or Re/code for the latest news in technology. You can follow the CEOs of your favorite tech company. You can make a list with all the women in tech who inspire you. Even better, if you're feeling weird about seeing so few or no women of color in tech when you read about tech, you can subscribe to a list with solely women of color in tech. Actually, thanks to a brilliant woman on Medium here are 185 Black Women in Tech to Follow on Twitter. You can make your own list!
Twitter is unlike any other platform when it comes to getting information or inspiration for technology IMO. Plus, (not tech related) it's hilarious! If you watch television live (like I do with the Walking Dead), sharing your outrage and reactions with others can be fun.
