For the longest time, I didn’t really “get” Twitter. I scoffed at the idea of being connected to ever single thought or whim someone had… but now, after following a few people on Twitter, I’m hopelessly hooked. If your own Twitter awakening hasn’t happened yet, perhaps you’re not following the right people! Here are 7 people to follow on Twitter.
After the Bronx Zoo lost one of their cobras last month, he began tweeting about his (brief) jaunt in the city. Even now, in re-captivity, he manages to update his hundreds of thousands of followers with such amusing tweets as this recent one: I know the zoo doesn't like it when you tap on the glass, but I don't mind it. In fact, feel free to tap really hard. With a hammer even.
I started following Conan after he lost his cushy night-time talk show job… oh wait… yeah. He’s utterly hilarious, and makes me guffaw (not just giggle) at least once or twice a day. A recent favorite tweet: If the government shuts down, the IRS will be closed, according to my accountant, Wesley Snipes.
You may remember Wil Wheaton as the nerdy kid from “Stand by Me” or the nerdy kid from TV’s “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” but I prefer to think of him as the nerdy older kid who’s still nerdy and still funny. A recent tweet: Me: Have you ever heard a busy signal? My friend's 15 year-old son: What's that? Me: ... My friend: ... His son: ...what?
Here’s someone else on Twitter I follow simply for the nostalgic value, and also maybe because she’s so funny! Alison played the blonde brat Nellie Olson on the “Little House on the Prairie” series, and is now an outspoken advocate of children’s rights. A recent tweet: So when I live tweeted from my mammogram, did that technically makes this "Titter"? Or was that a "Live Teat"?
Before you freak when you visit for the first time, be aware none of this is ACTUAL NEWS, it’s simply amusing satire. That said, follow The Onion on Twitter, and keep up to date on all of the newest phony news. A recent headline tweet: Doritos celebrates one millionth ingredient.
Sure, his life is something of a train wreck right now, but I have to admit, he’s insanely funny to follow on Twitter. Something about his good cheer is almost manic, and as long as he’s not hurting himself, or anyone else, I don’t feel bad laughing with him, at him.
I shouldn’t have listed her last, certainly not below the Bronx Zoo cobra, but here she is. She’s almost as funny on Twitter as she is in real life. For instance, she recently mentioned having Reese Witherfork on her show. That’s the kind of world-play I like. I’m a nerd like that.
These are just a handful of the celebs and others I follow on Twitter, and now I’m even getting updates on my phone. I’m hooked! Almost every celeb you can think of tweets now, so look them up and start following them! It’s so much fun! Which of these people do you follow on Twitter? Is there someone else I need to follow, too? Please let me know!
