Did you know that Darth Vader has a Twitter account?
It’s true! This social-networking site is a real internet powerhouse and it’s more than just tweets about lunch and link-sharing if you know where to look! The following is a list of my favorite fun accounts I follow on Twitter. They’re great for a laugh, and at only 140 characters, they make a perfect mid-day pick-me-up!
@tng_s8 – TNG Season 8
Were seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation just not enough for you? Never fear! This twitter account throws up miniature descriptions of fake episodes for an eighth season of TNG. Every episode is absolutely hilarious, and this account keeps me coming back to relive the humor.
@God_Damn_Batman – The Batman
Batman is a BAMF. This, you cannot deny. So what would happen if Batman got a hold of a Twitter account? I have to imagine it would look exactly like this. Batman doesn’t take crap from anyone, and that includes Robin and Alfred. Not to mention a good Bat loves to tout his henchmen-and-baddie-stomping skills!
@FakeAPStylebook – The Fake AP Stylebook
Okay, maybe this one isn’t as funny to everyone, but for those of us working in the journalism field where AP Style is pretty much our bread-and-butter, this is pretty hilarious. And considering they have over 270,000 followers, I’m guessing there are some non-Journalists getting a kick out of their fake guidelines as well!
@DepressedDarth – Darth Vader
Even a Sith Lord has a bad day once in awhile, and getting a look into Darth Vader’s mind can be pretty dang amusing. If you think your day’s been bad, check out this account and feel a little better. (I mean after all, your deductible has to be better than Vader’s!)
@DeathStarPR – Death Star Public Relations
You think your job is bad? Can you even imagine what it must be like to work for the public relations department on the Death Star? This hilarious account details some of the spins a PR Group for the Death Star would have to pull.
@EricasFish – Erica’s Fish
Yeah, we’ve all seen pictures of cats with hilarious captions on them. There are entire websites devoted to them. But this account is all from the perspective of a fish! This particular account is fairly new and doesn’t have many followers yet, but I’m extremely amused so far!
@Lord_Voldemort7 – The Dark Lord
Well if we have the iconic baddie from Star Wars, we of course need to feature the iconic baddie from Harry Potter! This particular Twitter account has a similar feel to The Batman’s account, but is highly amusing in it’s own way. Voldemort’s account is a bit more meta and deals with some pop-culture happenings.
@michael_bay__ – Fake Michael Bay
Making fun of Micheal Bay is a personal hobby of mine. With copious amounts of explosions and other such nonsense in all of his films, I can’t help but laugh at him a little. And this Twitter account makes it all the easier. It’s a new discovery of mine, but I have to say I’m never going back!
@Hal9000_ – HAL 9000
What could be more awesome than the Twitter account of a sentient computer bent on the destruction of human lifeforms? Well, maybe don’t answer that. HAL’s probably listening in anyway. Instead, you’d better just follow the account. It’s safer that way.
So, did I miss your favorite humorous account? Let me know in the comments below! Also remember you can follow me @HotPinkJoystick for a continuous dose of girly, geeky goodness!
