You could make the case that there are actually too many celebrities on Twitter for you to decide who to follow. Maybe you’d be happy following all of them, but what if you want to know who’s constantly pumping out the juicy, entertaining tweets?
In this article, I will run down a list of the top tweeting stars and celebrities you really should follow. You won’t find any Biebers or Hiltons on this list.
Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk)
Once touted as the most followed person on Twitter, Ashton Kutcher has to be on this list. Ashton shares a lot of what he finds funny or interesting, he @replies people, and he makes use of sites like Posterous and Ustream in his tweets. There’s definitely some value in his Twitter stream.
Rainn Wilson (@rainnwilson)
If you’ve ever watched The Office, you know Rainn Wilson is hilarious. His tweets are cut from the same cloth as his role on the show and are usually very humorous. Follow Rainn if you want to get his take on current events.
Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano)
Alyssa Milano uses Twitter like most of us non-celebrities use it. She tweets about sports, current events, and whatever is relevant or interesting. She’s very personable and is not afraid of over-tweeting, as she states in her bio.
Jeremy Piven (@jeremypiven)
Most people can’t hear Jeremy’s name without thinking about his character Ari Gold on Entourage. His tweets are similar in spirit in that he speaks his mind and is not afraid of offending anybody. He does have some interesting tweets.
Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow)
As Ellen claims in her Twitter bio, her tweets are real and “spectacular”. If you’re looking for relevant tweets, or just something to make you laugh, you should follow this tweeting star.
Jimmy Fallon (@jimmyfallon)
I had to mention Jimmy on this list. His tweets are usually pretty funny and off topic, and he occasionally will mix Twitter in with his Late Night television show. Definitely check him out, as well as Quest from The Roots (@questlove), his partner in crime.
Conan O’Brien (@ConanOBrien)
Admittedly, I am a big fan of ‘CoCo’. He started his Twitter career when he was “let go” by NBC and it has since become a huge hit. His new show is coming up this Fall which, like his tweets, will probably be hilarious.
Rob Corddry (@robcorddry)
Rob’s tweets are funny in a sinister kind of way. He’s a talented guy and he is not afraid to express his opinion on any subject. Send him a tweet and you just might get an answer.
Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey)
Jim Carrey is another hilarious tweeter. There’s not really much I can say about his account. When you follow Jim Carrey, you know what you’re getting.
Shaq might be one of the greatest tweeters of all time, in my opinion. His personality really shines through on his Twitter wall as he shares videos, pictures, and “random acts of Shaqness”. He will occasionally do cool things like give away tickets to fans and hold hilarious contests also.
Chad Ochocinco (@OGOchoCinco)
Chad uses Twitter and Ustream like it’s his job. He lets his fans into his life through his tweets and he engages his audience. If you want to be entertained, follow Chad.
P. Diddy (@iamdiddy)
Follow Diddy if you want to read inspirational tweets or words of wisdom. His status as a hip-hop icon and celebrity is reinforced through his tweets, as he comes off as the powerful individual that he is.
Kanye West (@KanyeWest)
Kanye occasionally makes the news for controversial things that he says, and his Twitter account is no different. He keeps it very real and when you read his tweets you know he’s speaking from the heart. Follow him to know what he’s doing/thinking.
Barack Obama (@BarackObama)
Last, but certainly not least, is Barack Obama. What kind of American would I be if I didn’t include President Obama on this list?
As far as politicians go, Barack is about as celebrity as they come. If you want to find out about what’s going on with the government, or you just want a place to voice your opinion, Barack’s account is a good one to follow.
Needless to say, you should find a wide variety of different kinds of tweets with this list. There’s something here for everybody, and I feel like I covered a lot of the real, engaging tweeting stars out there.
If you are in the following mood, you can find more people to follow here.
