Add some humor to your Twitter feed with these funny Authors
Although most novels easily pass 100,000 words of copy, sometimes the best writing authors do only have 140 characters (and we don’t mean people). These hilarious authors not only cover things that burgeoning writers will find hilarious, they also cover things that anyone will find hilarious.
From quips about current events to all too #relatable situations, these authors will add some color to your Twitter feed. Check out the best authors to follow on Twitter!
Not to give anything away, but I did type up a great anecdote involving a chili dog being thrown out a car window.

Susan’s stream of consciousness Tweets are so funny that you’ll find yourself compulsively scrolling though her feed for more. From her musings about Game of Thrones to frustration with IKEA, it’s truly a Twitter for the random thing you’ve always thought about.
Every time I read the phrase “don’t get me wrong” in an essay, I think, “Then go back and rewrite this so I don’t get you wrong.”

For a guy that says “newsletters are the new Twitter,” he posts on Twitter a lot, often hilariously, with such gut-busting, but valid, sarcasm that you will wish you thought about his tweets first.

For an author whose work is suspenseful, mysterious, and dark, his twitter feed is surprising hilarious. He always documents events and adventures he goes on, but it’s the random musings like the one above that make the his feed worthwhile.

Jenny Mollen is essentially the best friend you wish you had. From highly impassioned tweets about the bachelorette, complaints about her kids, to just generally hilarious tweets about anything, if you want a good laugh everyday, this feed is the one for you.
Bummed I didn’t get to visit Greece before it closed.
— Seth Grahame-Smith (@sethgs) June 30, 2015
It’s pretty much the Twitter feed you’d expect from the other of books as outlandish as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Seth Grahame-Smith’s Twitter is essentially a hilarious take on current events (picture The Daily Show with less Fox News). However, he also includes behind-the-scene looks at the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
