10 Celeb Twitter Feeds Worth Following
Think about it: before the creation of Twitter, we didn’t even know what Kim Kardashian had for breakfast! If this sends shivers up your spine, you’re probably a die-hard celeb Twitter-aholic. It’s a rare breed of person who doesn’t rely on “US Weekly” to get celeb news; you go straight to the source. That being said, not all celeb Twitter feeds are award-winners. If there’s anything Twitter has taught me, it’s that a lot of celebs are either a) not funny or b) really boring. Looking for some new celebs to stalk on your favorite blue site? Here are some of the best of the best.
Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome)
TV’s right-wing funnyman has one of the best Twitter feeds ever, with political quips, observational stuff and just all-round funniness. If you can’t get enough of his show, you can carry on by following tweets like “It’s M. Night Shyamalan’s Birthday…or is it? (Twist Ending: It is.)” or ” Barack Obama donated $5,000 to his own campaign. He’s going to get a TON of emails from them now.” Awesome!
Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling)
“The Office” cutie and supporting player Mindy Kaling recently scored her own gig on FOX and her Twitter feed is one part sing-girl lifestyle, one part work dish and 100 parts awesomeness. She’s pretty dishy, talking about what it’s like on the set of her new show “The Mindy Kaling Project” and who laughs the most on-set. She also offers plenty of hilarious insight into her world, like “Get up early, run errands, read, nap, slowly jog to early 2000s music while imagining I’m protecting the 2012 Olympics from terrorists.”
Lord Voldemort (@Lord_Voldemort7)
OK, so he might not be a real celeb per se, but who’s more famous that He Who Shall Not be Named himself? As it turns out, Lord Voldy actually has a searing sense of humor and a serious chip on his shoulder. After all, with tweets like “Make sure you seize the day and appreciate your life because you could be brutally murdered by Death Eaters at any moment.” Ah, both inspiring and slightly terrifying. I like how you roll, Voldy.
Shaquille O’Neal (@SHAQ)
Spoiler alert! Shaq is definitely not going to win a Pulitzer for the written word on his Twitter feed. But if you can sift through the unintelligible mumblings, you can uncover some serious gems from this half athlete/half comedian. He’s constantly filming skits and pranks with his buddies and posting them to his account, while offering up mantras like this: “An old nba adage (sic) we have to get worse to get better, that’s true but what happens when u get worser (sic) aka more worse than the worse answa dat (sic) (sic).” My head hurts, but Shaq is too lovable to miss.
Rainn Wilson (@rainnwilson)
So as it turns out, Rainn Wilson, the actor who plays Dwight Schrute on the “The Office” isn’t that great of an actor after all; he’s actually just Dwight Schrute in real life. “Han Solo Vs Indiana Jones. Cage match. Who would win?” Now tell me that doesn’t sound like something Dwight would ask.
Lily Allen (@lilyrosecooper)
Lily Allen started her entire career as a Myspace star, so it’s no surprise that she jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. The singer is surprisingly funny, poking fun at her life as the child of a British playboy and as a huge cross-the-pond star. Unfortunately, Lily had to take a brief break from Twitter after she reported a racist comment to the British Ministry of Defense, but she’s back and Tweeting stuff like “Watching lympix with Lads is unbearable. female athletes are being scored on bonkability only. BLOOD IS BOILING.”
Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH)
Doogie Howser himself got to experience a revival period in his life where he successfully transitioned from teen doctor to Twitter superstar. Thanks to performances online and at the Tony’s, he has tons of followers hanging onto his every sarcastic, witty word, like ” My favorite thing about Paris is the ‘double kiss on the cheek’ greeting. It is both intimate and disarming. I’m totally stealing that.” Gold.
Conan O’Brien (@ConanOBrien)
OK, so as a “Tonight Show” host, Conan was a fail (it wasn’t his fault!) but as a Tweeter, Conan rocks the house with hilariousness. Add that to the fact that he chose one random person to follow and you have a major winner when it comes to Twitter feeds. Contests, funny pictures and video galore, along with gems like “Other than candy, ice cream, honey, sugar, and sugar substitutes, is there anything sweeter than the love of your family?” Definitely a must-follow if you’re looking for smart, funny and non-vapid celebs to troll.
Seth Meyers (@sethmeyers21)
One of the head writers and past “Weekend Update” anchors for SNL, Seth Meyers has tons of observation humor on his feed. Even better? He doesn’t post all sorts of websites, retweets and tags in every single tweet like some celebs do (No names, Lindsay Lohan) so his feed is just pure humor. It’s like being inside of his brain; perfect for when you’re dying for a little pink-me-up. “‘Based on a True Story’ on a movie poster basically just means ‘has people in it.’ Indeed, Seth. Indeed.
Miley Cyrus (@MileyCyrus)
If you’re sitting around, missing the days when you would eavesdrop on the cool kids table in the high school cafeteria, just add Miley Cyrus to your Twitter feed and eavesdrop away! You’ll get to hear more about her hair and how she feels about the regular folk taking pictures of her. “HATE when people think I’m an idiot and don’t see them taking my photo & btw if your (sic!) trying to be sly turn your effing flash off dummy!”
Can it be true? Are there celebs that aren’t so self involved that their feeds are actually tolerable, and dare I say it, enjoyable? It’s true; you just need to know where to look. And if the person you were thinking about following has the last name of Kardashian, step away from the computer. Then come back and follow one of these people instead.
