It’s no secret that Twitter is one of the best platforms for a comedic voice. Who doesn’t love reading 140 character quips about a douchey neighbor, or a running commentary on the latest episode of Scandal? In the last few years, Twitter has gone from being a way us mere peasants can feel closer to celebrities, to being an avenue for writers, comedians, and performers.
Here are 10 hilarious, brilliant, so-funny-I’m-gonna-pee women you need to be following on Twitter right now.
1. Brittani Nichols
I’m sorry I called you vaguely famous in front of company
— Brittani Nichols (@BisHilarious) December 7, 2015
This writer/comedian/actor needs to be on your Twitter radar. Her biting and sharp wit make us LOL, plus her commentary on society is on point.
2. Julianne Smolinski
My dad once told me bagged cereal was cheaper because the artists who do the boxes are expensive. Hey dads, you can just say “I don’t know.”
— Julieanne Smolinski (@BoobsRadley) December 6, 2015
Smolinski currently writes for Grace and Frankie, but we’re most #thankful and #blessed for her Twitter account.
3. Jenny Johnson
Fun Fact: If your boyfriend gave you a promise ring in high school, he likes guys now.
— Jenny Johnson (@JennyJohnsonHi5) December 9, 2015
Try and scroll through Johnson’s Twitter page without laughing out loud. Seriously, try! It’s pretty much impossible and we love her so much.
4. Beth Stelling
I’ve been called a “female comic” so many times, I’ll probably only be able to answer to “girl daddy” when I have children.
— Beth Stelling (@BethStelling) May 23, 2015
Beth Stelling is not only killing it in the stand-up comedy game, but her tweets are hilarious as well. Our love for her knows no end.
5. Grace Spelman
What would you say if I told you I ate a whole wedge of Brie cheese today? Would you be like “Oh that’s really hot”
— Jingle Spels (@GraceSpelman) December 6, 2015
A writer for BuzzFeed, Spelman’s Twitter account is consistently hilarious.
6. Alexis Wilkinson
“Aren’t you even a little worried that Trump might actually get elected?” Me: pic.twitter.com/gI5edGHFzM
— Alexis Wilkinson (@OhGodItsAlexis) August 28, 2015
Wilkinson is a writer for HBO’s Veep, as if we needed another reason to be obsessed with her.
7. Lindsey Finn
Sometimes I worry I’m irrational on my period then I remember that I’ve never been irrational or wrong a day in my life and fuck everyone.
— Lindsey Finn (@LindseyMFinn) March 30, 2015
This tweet alone deserves a standing ovation. YAAAS QUEEN, PREACH!
8. Julia Segal
I’m so out of shape I should have an Amazon wish list so people can reward me for NOT taking my clothes off.
— Julia Segal (@juliasegal) October 21, 2015
Segal is a writer for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and @Midnight, with self-deprecating humor that makes us giggle.
9. Erin Whitehead
Ever see a pic someone posts of you and think “Oh. God. You think this is an ok picture to use because THIS IS WHAT I LOOK LIKE TO YOU.”
— erin whitehead (@girlwithatail) December 4, 2015
It’s too real! REPEAT: The tweet is too real! Whitehead, an improviser and comedian at the Upright Citizens Brigade in LA, is one of the best tweeters out there. Her humor is dark, sweet, and just wonderful.
10. Jen Statsky
Have scientists isolated the gene that makes you retweet compliments? — Jen Statsky (@jenstatsky) November 30, 2015
Statsky’s writing credits are badass enough to make any aspiring comedy writer jealous: Parks and Recreation, Broad City, Hello Ladies, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon…the list continues. We can totally see why she is absolutely killing it in the comedy writing game – every single thing she tweets is painfully funny.
