10 Twitter Accounts for Young People Interested in Manufacturing to Follow

10 Twitter Accounts for Young People Interested in Manufacturing to FollowIf you’re a young person and you’re interested in manufacturing, you should get on Twitter (if you aren’t already).

Twitter is home to a lot of great information on a wide variety of manufacturing topics, and if you’re not spending time reading the headlines every day, you’re definitely missing out.

With that in mind, we recommend that anyone (but especially young people) interested in manufacturing give these following accounts a look. They’re our 10 favorite Twitter accounts in manufacturing, and they’re definitely worth checking out.

In no particular order, here are our top 10 favorite manufacturing Twitter accounts:

1. @mikeroweworks

Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs is a great account to follow. He’s heavily involved in manufacturing education, tweets interesting things, and is a pretty cool guy to boot.

 

2. @SME_MFG

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers is a little more serious, but tweets a lot about manufacturing education, and careers in manufacturing.

 

3. @make

MAKE Magazine is a great magazine for crafts and experiments related to STEM skills. Their Twitter account is a great mix between cool manufacturing news, experiments, and info about organizations from NASA to Makerbot.

 

4. @FabLabHub

FabLabs around the country offer ways to  to explore digital fabrication, experiment and create. They talk a lot about 3D printing and are great for anyone specifically interested in fabrication.

 

5. @MfgEngNews

Manufacturing Engineering Media’s news Twitter is much more technical than most of the accounts here. Their feed is full of news from around the industry, trends, and hard data on manufacturing.

 

6. @wiredscience

Though Wired Science isn’t strictly dedicated to manufacturing, they are an awesome, interesting Twitter feed. This account should be of great interest to anyone with an interest in STEM skills.

 

7. @mfgeducation

The SME Education foundation is the education branch of SME listed above. Their interest is educating the future manufacturing workforce, and their feed revolves around spreading real information about today’s manufacturing. Sound familiar?

 

8. @KeepitMadeinUSA

The Alliance for American Manufacturing is a nonprofit dedicated to strengthening U.S. manufacturing. Unsurprisingly, their Twitter feed focuses on news about U.S.-made goods, but if you’re interested in manufacturing, they’re definitely a good organization to keep up on.

 

9. @mashabletech

Mashable Tech falls into the same category as Wired Science. They’re not strictly focused on manufacturing, but they feature a lot of really cool technology.

 

10. @MFGcom

MFG.com is the largest global online manufacturing marketplace. Their Twitter feed is very technical, but is worth a read if you’re interested in what’s going on behind-the-scenes in manufacturing.

 

Anyone with a thirst for knowledge about manufacturing will definitely be satisfied reading through the Twitter accounts we just mentioned. Some are more serious, some are more fun, but all are worth a read.

Oh, and we forgot to mention that we’re on Twitter, too (and we obviously think that we’re worth a look). If you have any questions about getting on Twitter, or the best manufacturing accounts to follow, don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments–or on Twitter.
