8 Hilarious Women on Twitter You Need to Follow

BY Chrissa Hardy

The Twitter-verse is a magical place. Is that enough to justify the (MANY) hours I spend on Twitter each week? Probably not. But clearly there’s a reason I get sucked in as soon as I sign on. Make that eight reasons. The women listed below are a brilliant mix of intelligent, hilarious, kind, generous, down to earth, inspirational and just downright rad. I’m so incredibly grateful that these spectacular ladies take the time to share their thoughts and feelings with their followers. I’m not sure they’re aware how much better they make my days by doing so, so just in case, this is my thank you note.

I give you, the 8 Women On Twitter You Need to Follow:

1. Retta @unfoRETTAble
I’m Donna on Parks & Rec, a Duke alum & I cuss a lot. Got an itchy block finger & not afraid to use it. P.S. I live tweet my favorite shows:#YouveBeenWarned

2. Sophia Rossi @sofifii
bossy tween & http://bffproductions.tumblr.com/  and http://hellogiggles.com/

3. Anna Kendrick @AnnaKendrick47
Pale, awkward and very very small. Form an orderly queue, gents.

4. Tavi Gevinson @tavitulle
Founding editor-in-chief of http://rookiemag.com . Rookie Yearbook One is available now: http://rookiemag.com/shop/rookie-yearbook-one/ …

5. Rashida Jones @iamrashidajones
I’m terrified of Twitter. Please be gentle.

6. Lena Dunham @lenadunham
My life is my art and therapy is my palette (JK, I make movies & shows. Like @tinyfurniture & @GirlsHBO)

7. Mindy Kaling @mindykaling
writer/performer/shopper

8. Ellen DeGeneres @TheEllenShow
Comedian, talk show host and ice road trucker. My tweets are real, and they’re spectacular.

    I have a couple of favorites. First is Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) , Jen Kirkman (@JenKirkman), Jenny Mollen (@jennyandteets) and so many more….

    • Ah, Jenny Mollen kills me. Her tweets are hilarious. I wasn’t following Jen Kirkman before, but I am now. Thank you for the suggestions!

    • Carmela

      You are very welcome 🙂

  • Thanks Chrissa, I’m going to add them all to my follow list. Thanks for sharing! Grace

  • One more name –
    @kellyoxford she’s sarcastic and hysterical in my opinion. A so-called nobody with famous followers and speaks the undeniable, sad and mostly sadly funny truth about the pop culture and our obsession over it for the most part 🙂
