Twitter Hash Tags for Designers and Developers

I’ve collected a few twitter accounts together that retweet certain #hashtags that you apply to your tweets, id reccomend adding one or two to the end of your tweets of the related subject.

The people who are following these accounts can then see your tweets which could mean some much more targeted traffic, here are the ones that i found.

Freebie: Tiled Ornamental Twitter Background

Here’s a free repeating pattern that is ideal to be used as a twitter background, created from some Victorian images from some books I’ve arranged them in a way that they will tile perfectly… how convenient!

A few of you may know that I’m really in to my ornaments and swirls so you can get a bit of inspiration from this post I wrote earlier: Ornamental design inspiration – Baroque
