I used to think Twitter was for the “Know-it-Alls”. With people ranting over every rain-fed puddle, assessing celebrity assets and basically pitching in political propaganda in the name of public spirit; in addition to the Trends changing every hour a day, what is one supposed to follow ?Twitter, social media,
Well, I won’t lie, Twitter may seem like a lot of work.Â But then I realised that it doesn’t have to be! If you pick the right folks to follow, the whole thing can be fun.Â Everyone loves a good joke!
Comedians are not only hilarious in real life but on Twitter too. They have created a new genre of comedy, hard to describe in one word. It’s like a combination of satire, current events, pop culture and stream of consciousness, all packaged into 140 characters or less. Whether you like parody, traditional comedians, sports commentary, girly rants or unconventionally weird Internet humor, there’s at least one account in the list below that will make you laugh.
1. @gkhambaÂ Writer. Comic. Co-founder of All India Bakchod.
End up buying t-shirts after seeing them worn by fit, well cut models and then see them hang like a shitty tent from my man tits

2.Â @KhapPanchayat Parody account, insanely funny!
Knock knock Who’s there? Laa Laa who? Laa who mooh lag gaya. (I’m sorry)
– Akshar (@AksharPathak) July 2, 2014
4. @GabbbarSingh Funny, mildly offensive at times. Totally worth it. Â
There seems to be Huge Air conditioner Installed on top of Bangalore with its exhaust pointed in the direction of Chennai. – GabbbarSingh (@GabbbarSingh) July 21, 2014
5.Â @RoflIndian Calls himself aÂ humourist and blogger
What Modi essentially wants to say is “India ko banana republic se republic banana padega”. – Rofl Indian (@Roflindian) May 8, 2014
6. @Fakingnews Indian News satire.
A parody of the sensational term “Breaking News”, FN uses satire as a brilliant tool forÂ social commentary.
7. @rameshsrivats Armchair thinker
Oho. Smoking ban is being discussed again. This Harsh Vardhan seems to have only 2 approaches – a) Ban things. b) Make things compulsory. – Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) July 9, 2014
His tweets ridicule the government schemes and point out their flaws. They are funny, but make a lot of sense.
8. @trendulkar Not a parody account of Sachin Tendulkar
I don’t hate Chetan Bhagat for his opinions. I hate him for writing novels about non-existent things like sex in Engineering colleges. – Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) July 16, 2014
The guy is “Forever Alone”, or so his tweets say. A sports fan, alright, but also tweets about the books he reads, the movies he watches, the autos he rode in, and so on; all of which are crisp, and funny!
9. @ComedyTruth (Sorry Not Sorry) Not just girly rants
She tweets about those oh so relatable experiences which make our life suck and also some girl-talk. ( P.S. – Amitabh Bachchan follows her)
10. @kamaalrkhan (self-proclaimed) Actor, producer and movie critic.
I have to say this guy is a gem! He probably has a life-sized poster of himself in every wall of his house. By the power vested in him, he diminishes all the actors he thinks are bullshit. He would sometimes even give you two reviews for a movie (one pro and one against). He gets into a fight with some celebrity every now and then, which is bizarre and entertaining. #2RsPpl should keep away!
11. @bhak_sala Comic page.
Everytime Ishant Sharma takes a wicket Rahul Gandhi starts hoping again – Bhak Sala (@bhak_sala) July 20, 2014
The topics range from sports to politics to sometimes literature. The tweets are a combination of original one-liners, widely circulated picture messages and sometimes the quintessential girl-boy jokes. Follow this page for its varied, yet humorous content!
12. @rahulroushan (not)Just another Twitter user with a great sense of humour
How much liberal neighborhood is, depends on which of these is given in black polythene bag by local banya: lingerie, chicken, wine, condom. – Rahul Roushan (@rahulroushan) July 18, 2014
His tweets are regular, funny, span the globe and make sense. What else are you looking for?
13. @coolfunnytshirtÂ (Keh Ke Pehno) Punny guy.
When it comes to pun, it is always intended by this guy. His tweets are direct, fresh and original. The kind of people who would seldom be heard saying- “no offense”. The word-play in his tweets is amazing!
14. @awryaditiÂ (Aditi Mittal) Comedian
I know I’m not asking for the first time, but are you SURE the lyrics are not “No eyes, no thighs, phir bhi bomb lagdi mennu”? – Aditi Mittal (@awryaditi) July 21, 2014
She’s a female comedian. She’s a Punjabi. Her tweets reflect a feminist conscience. She has a voice. She makes it heard. She’s funny and always to the point. What’s not to like?
15. @mojorojoÂ (Rohan Joshi) Comedian, writer, part of All India Bakchod
A black cat peed on our front door so mother is now convinced we will all get cancer and die by tonight for our sins. – Rohan Joshi (@mojorojo) July 21, 2014
Apart from posting about his humorous columns and videos, he also voices his opinions on all things that annoy him. They are funny because they are so relatable.
16. @IISuperwomanIIÂ (Lilly singh) Entertainer. Famous for her YouTube Videos.
Ideally, she is somebody famous for her YouTube videos than tweets, but what the hell! Her tweets would lead you to her YouTube Channel. She is the writer’s strong recommendation. To get ALL her videos you need to be a Brown and a Punjabi (both of which I am), but, nevertheless, she has mastered the skill of picking up on universal human traits and showcasing them in her videos. She is crazy, and so funny, without demeaning anyone. Respect!
17. @thetanmayÂ (Tanmay Bhatt) Comic writer. Co-founder of the All India Bakchod
Lent the Ecosport to dad for 6 days. It’s been duly returned, replete with god idols and photos. I now call it the Ford Tirupati. – Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 18, 2014
Famous for their YouTube Podcasts. His tweets also become a rage online in no time. Keeps confessing his love for Parineeti Chopra in cheesey lines every so often.
18. @thevirdasÂ (Vir Das) Comedian, Actor
He hardly needs an introduction. His tweets manage to tickle the funny bone, just like his stand-up acts.
19. @HoeZaayÂ ( Jose Covavo) MTv VJ.
He is famous for his 7 minutes videos. Insane. Absurd. Crazy. Describe his humour.
Hope you enjoyed a good laugh. That’s not to say these are the only accounts. There are millions of funny tweeters out there, so share the ones you love best in the comments.
