Yes, of course, this is a subjective list.  But it is a hilarious one as well.

Biggie thumbs up for these tweeters!

"Biggie thumbs up for these tweeters!"

Social media consultants love to discuss the business implications of Twitter.  How you can reach new audiences, engage with loyal customers, enhance customer service, broadcast news and information, and even sell products and services.  But there’s another side to Twitter.

Entertainment.  There are some funny people on there.  So if you are looking for laughs – then these are the folks to follow (and, please, some of these are rated R so no complaints that you weren’t warned).

Here’s my list of the 13 of the funniest accounts on Twitter:

  1. I think you need to add newcomer @FakeAPStylebook to this list.

    Summary: Making fun of the AP Style Guide tips

    Just a Taste: “Your” and “you’re” may be used interchangeably if you are an idiot.

  2. Hi Kevin:
    Great add. Thanks! As an idiot with “your” and “you’re,” I can also relate!

  3. I highly recommend adding the (fake) Michael Bay account.

  4. fireland is a friggin’ hidden gold mine of hilarity. glad to see it’s being appreciated elsewhere! great list, btw.

  5. David Spade ain’t funny. Not in real life and not on Twitter.

  6. Each to his own, Ron. But I happen to think that David Spade is a comedic beacon that shines a golden light through the dark wilderness of the unfunny.

  7. thanks for these especially @fireland

  8. check him out @shitatwit

  9. @dead_ted is awesome as well.
