Computer geeks need a good laugh sometimes, and there is no better place than Twitter. Twitter is a gold mine of funny accounts that reach all parts of life and work. Either it’s an account about an inexperienced web designer that tweets out all of the things you did the first year on the job, or a server that is so depressed because the system administrators have no idea what they are doing.
Below is a collection of some funny Twitter accounts about geeks, mostly related to programming, development, etc.

Junior Designer - @jnr_designer

If you are a designer and find that this account doesn’t related to a past version of yourself, you probably need to take a second look at your designs. On a normal day you can see how a junior, inexperienced designer works. From saving files as “design1.png”, “design1 (copy).png”, “design1 new (copy).png” to having thin light gray fonts on white backgrounds.
