Twitter: you get 140 characters to craft your thoughts for anyone who “follows” you to see. It forces you to think about the most creative and efficient ways to share your musings. Some people are definitely better at it than others. I am on a constant search to find the best people on Twitter. So today I decided to share some of my favorite people on Twitter, hoping to spread the uncontrollable laughter and appreciation elicited by these spectacular Tweeters.
Zerlina came to UW-Madison to speak about topics including “Rape culture” and the importance of being present on social media, particularly Twitter. In fact, her presence on Twitter has played a tremendous role in advancing her career. She has even been asked to work on Presidential matters, based on her political involvement via Twitter.
The Lamar Odom coverage is pissing me off so much bc he won two rings! The entirety of his life is not that he married a Kardashian. #ugh

Aziz is one of my favorite comedians. If you read “Navigating Modern Romance”, you already know that he has some great advice. In fact, I found out he had a book coming out, because I was following him on Twitter. I also recently found out that he has a Netflix series coming out as well pretty soon. So if anything, follow him for laughs and updates on his work that you definitely need to check out!

Without a doubt, Ben Schwartz is my favorite person on Twitter. Sometimes I approach my own Twitter with WWBST (What Would Ben Schwartz Tweet)? He’s way funnier than I will ever be, but it’s the thought that counts, right? Seriously, go follow him now. Oh yeah, and he was Jean-Ralphio on Parks and Rec.
I’m confused. Was Cap’n Crunch’s ship just floating around searching for hidden cereal? Was that his deal?

Ever heard of Impractical Jokers? If not, you should definitely go watch it right now. It’s four lifelong friends who have taken dares to a whole new level. Sal Vulcano is probably my favorite character on the show, and whether or not you actually watch the show, you won’t regret following him.
Trying to edit your initial tweet down to 140 characters while still keeping every sentiment is the new crossword puzzle.

HELENE IN BETWEEN
Helene is one of my favorite bloggers! This past July I participated in a month-long Instagram challenge started by Helene with the hashtag “#31PhotosInBetween”, and it was one of the best experiences I have had interacting with other bloggers. It was so much fun to find other bloggers in such a creative way. Helene always has great content on her blog, which you won’t have trouble finding by follow her on Twitter!

Melyssa is pretty similar to Helene in the amazing content she produces. The community that she has built around The Nectar Collective amazes me, and I definitely aspire to be like Melyssa. Whenever I need advice on my blog or have a question about how to do something, I am almost positive Melyssa’s blog can help!

I have been following Ashten for a long time now, long enough to see her transition between different blogs, and I am so impressed by her. She is so relatable, and she always makes me laugh.
Just sitting here in my tiny ass closet freaking out bc I just realized every piece of clothing I own could also be worn by a high schooler.

And what would this post be without a shameless plug for my own Twitter account? Check out more posts and sleep-deprived ramblings on my Twitter account.
I think God misheard me. I like Coff-EE. Not Cough-ING
