- "New dev alert! Give @henrikkniberg a follow. You might learn some things! He came to Mojang as a coach and has apparently just pulled up a chair and started fixing things in Minecraft. 😉" – @Marc_IRL (Marc Watson) on Twitter, March 29, 2019
- "I'm happy to announce @henrikkniberg as a new team member in the Minecraft Gameplay team! Send him a hug or just some random Minecraft thoughts ;). Henrik has been at Mojang for awhile and has helped us with lots of things, so it is truly lovely he now is a part of our team." – @_LadyAgnes (Agnes Larsson) on Twitter, October 14, 2019

- "Hi folks, I'm leaving Mojang, at least for now, so I won't be posting as much Minecraft stuff. This has been really fun! Never met a dev team with so strong passion for their product & users. And the community has been super helpful with snapshot feedback & testing. Keep it up!❤️" – @henrikkniberg on Twitter, May 31, 2022
