13 Engineering Leaders to Follow on Twitter in 2019

Here is a list of who I consider the most useful and influential 13 engineering leaders on Twitter. There are many management and leadership influencers on Twitter but what makes this list special is they all have experience as engineering leaders.

Also, many of these engineering leaders have been interviewed on managersclub.com so I included links to their interviews so you can learn more about them.
