The 10 Best DIY Twitter Feeds to Follow

DIYImage source: http://www.sis.sch.id

As a DIYer, I am always looking for new challenges for my craft. Although there are lots of other sources to get a wide amount of DIY subjects and clear instruction, Twitter has been my favourite source for DIY information, as it sends me new stuff everyday, but also gives me the possibility to contact the people who post their projects, or ask specific questions about new tools or materials. This makes Twitter superior to Pinterest or Instagram.

Here are the 9 best Twitter feeds to follow if you want to know everything about DIY:

#1 – @DIY – the mother of all DIY twitter feeds
