The best/worst thing about social media is how it uses algorithms and data to predict further content you might like. While the downsides to this can be extreme (have you seen the Social Dilemma yet?), I’m focusing on the lighter side:

When making a career change, overriding that existing algorithm to get it to display your new interests can be overwhelming and challenging.

Yeah, you’ll follow a lot of dud accounts and a lot of great ones before your discovery page finally becomes filled with all the content your heart has been looking for. So to save you some time (and help fight against that algorithm), here’s a list of 24 UX/UI accounts I follow to get you started!
