Just For Fun
Twitter is a great source for marketing information, but let’s be real here – a Twitter feed that is 100% practical is 100% boring. Finding people to follow that interest you will make your Twitter experience go from zero to hero in a matter of minutes. Seeing as everyone loves to laugh, I’ve picked three of the funniest Twitter handles that make a great addition to anyone’s existing feed.
This one is a little more taste specific – but considering that over 500 million Harry Potter books have been sold, I feel confident that at least 30% of the people reading this are fans. On this feed, you can expect to find hilarious tweets from the Dark Lord himself. If you struggle with Post Potter Depression as much as I do, then aside from an 8th book this is the next best thing. Here’s one of my favorite tweets from He Who Must Not Be Named.
It’s tough to suggest comedians to follow because everyone’s taste is so different. With that said, Joan Rivers is so damn funny that I’m confident that at least 75% of people would find her hilarious. With her outrageous commentary, Joan tweets about pop culture, fashion, and her disdain for hot weather. If you want a good laugh, do yourself a favor and follow her.
If you’re looking for hilarious tweets that make fun of politicians, pop culture, relationships…well that pretty much make fun of everything – then you must follow Brian Soto on Twitter. After just ten minutes of reading his feed, I’ve practically done my ab workout for the day. Obviously everyone has their own preference for humor, but I really recommend at least checking this guy out. Here are some of my favorite PG rated tweets from Brian.
So there you have it, my top Twitter picks. Whether you are stuck in a Twitter rut, or you’re just looking for some new people follow, I’m confident that these suggestions will be a great addition to your Twitter feed.
