Top 10 Celebrity Twitter Feeds


These celebrities prove that they’re just as interesting in real life as they appear on screen. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 celebrity twitter feeds.

For this list, we’re looking at celebrity twitter feeds that are popular, either through informative or hilarious tweets, and that are just plain fun to read. To be clear, the celebrity doesn’t have to be a movie or TV star; as long as they’re famous, they’re eligible. Also, we’re excluding one-off celebrity e twitter fame, such as Amanda Bynes’ brief trainwreck stint, as the celebrity has to be a regular, consistent, quality twitter user.

#10: Olivia Wilde

Famous for her run on “The O.C.,” “House,” and in various films, this actress/model maintains a humorous and political twitter feed, providing laughs and thought-provoking responses. She’s full of witty observations, mostly about daily life and other celebrities. Nobody is off limits, making her as funny as she is unpredictable. Olivia also provides political views and advocates for environmental awareness, rounding out her feed and making it enjoyable for different reasons. Whether you want to laugh or debate hot topic issues, she’ll leave you positively twitterpated.

#9: Rainn Wilson

He is the goofiest character on “The Office,” so it’s fitting that he would be a complete goof in real life, but unlike Dwight Schrute, Rainn Wilson’s wacky anecdotes are actually embraced by others. He has one of the funniest celebrity twitter feeds, with an eclectic range of topics, all told with his signature style of humor. Wilson’s feed is also notable for his interactions with fans, as well as his often touching tweets about his shows and fellow cast members. It’s entertaining, but it’s also interactive, which is always a major plus when it comes to choosing quality feeds.

#8: Aziz Ansari

Aziz has found success not only through “Parks and Recreation,” but through his stand-up comedy too. His twitter feed follows in a similar vein to his stand-up, usually including biting remarks on pop culture, celebrities, and even his own personal life. His feed contains the same signature bitter tone that his stand-up does, but that’s precisely why it’s so uproarious. He also retweets his cousin Harris and shares outrageous product ideas, making his feed one of the most original in the comedy field.

#7: Jimmy Fallon

Fallon landing the cushy gig as host of “The Tonight Show” surprised everyone, as he proved not only to be a competent host, but he also reinvented the show and modernized it for contemporary audiences, with many videos from the series going viral. His twitter feed supports the show in many ways, with him giving readers insights into his guests, and even previewing jokes from his monologues. Furthermore, Jimmy uses twitter as a tool for his show, asking readers to pitch stories, which he then reads on the air. It’s hilarious, informative, and interactive.

#6: Ellen DeGeneres

Like Jimmy Fallon, Ellen uses twitter as a tool to support her daytime talk show, “Ellen,” and that means you’ll see her tweeting to other celebrities, or mocking them for a laugh. She also has an original bit called “Classic Joke Monday,” and her tweets about her personal life are always hysterical. The jokes aren’t all she brings, as she often includes serious tweets, be it for a cause or an event, but in typical Ellen style, she adds her own brand of humor to even the most serious of topics, leaving it all lighthearted enough to fully enjoy.

#5: Lena Dunham

If you’ve ever seen Dunham’s critically acclaimed HBO comedy “Girls,” then you’d know just what type of humor to expect when you read her feed. Often containing grossly inappropriate jokes, her tweets are just as raunchy as her show, but just as sidesplitting too. She also gives readers an intimate glimpse into her personal life, which connects fans to her on a more private note. Of course, they’re all done with a clever twist, so at least those readers who don’t care get a joke out of it.

#4: Anna Kendrick

This Broadway darling turned Hollywood actress is known across a wide spectrum, from her Academy Award nominated performance in “Up in the Air” to her musical talents displayed in “Pitch Perfect.” Regardless of how you know her, her twitter is always good for a laugh. Her tweets are often observation-based, and many are hysterically true, mocking all sorts of aspects of everyday life. She also uses self-deprecating humor, poking fun at her own laziness. It’s clear that she’s just like everyone else, and funny to boot.

#3: Shaquille O’Neal

Oh Shaq, is there anything you can’t do? From being an all-star basketball player to starring in his own video game, Shaq has been around, and now hopes to conquer the Twitterverse as well. His feed is filled with spelling and grammatical errors, but that only adds to the uniqueness and the fun. O’Neal’s biography states that his twitter will be “Very quotatious” and that he performs “random acts of Shaqness” and really, isn’t that all you need to know? Comical and unique, Shaq’s twitter feed is a slam-dunk.

#2: Mindy Kaling

Kaling, who had a supporting role on “The Office” before landing her own show “The Mindy Project,” is one hilarious woman. Her feed is filled with jokes at the expense of celebrities, whom she often mocks in a playful fashion. She also provides brief updates on what she’s been doing, keeping fans in the loop. As she is a writer, it’s only natural that her feed is filled with quality, and her cool, carefree attitude only adds to the delight. She’s basically your goofy best friend in celebrity form.

Before we scroll over to our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:
- Russell Brand
- Steve Carell
- Stephen Colbert
- Lady Gaga
- Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

#1: Ricky Gervais

The king of controversy takes our top spot, as his twitter feed has it all. When he’s not effortlessly plugging his new shows, he’s sending priceless bath pictures, showing off his prized cat, tweeting about the ramblings of friend Karl Pilkington, and generally starting trouble in the form of his controversial religious tweets. What makes him even better is that he responds to haters and arguers, effectively giving his followers a voice and a conversation. In other words, his feed is not just funny, but also smart and engaging.
