Of course, finding the right people to follow can be somewhat cumbersome. That is why I curated a list of 21 UX experts who inspire me and keep me up to date with the latest UX news!

Jeff Sauro

He specializes in making statistical concepts understandable and actionable. Jeff has published over fifteen peer-reviewed research articles and presents tutorials and papers regularly at the leading Human Computer Interaction conferences.

Why. Jeff Sauro doesn’t have a personal Twitter account but MeasuringU has. You can expect tweets being send out with a rapid pace and always field related!

    It is amazing that LinkedIn drags me out to the AppStore to get their app when all I want to do is open a URL from the email it sent me.

  2. Ow, I see. I read the story on Linkedin and wanted to read the entire article. One of the things that drives me bonkers as well! I hope you liked the article though.
