It’s hard to believe that Twitter is only 8 years old- how did we follow (read: stalk) celebrities’ every move before?

The social media platform gives us an insight into the day to day lives of the famous people we chose to follow.

To ensure a smile on your face when you scroll through the news feed, these humorous women are worth a follow:

Who: Amy Huberman

Followers: 160k

An actress and the other half of Ireland’s most celebrated rugby player, Amy steals the show with her on-point and witty tweets that are downright relatable to females all over the country.


Who: Lily Allen

Followers: 4.73m

British singer Lily is as down to earth as a millionaire celebrity comes. When she’s not uploading post-party pictures of her looking worse for wear, she’s posting food-for-thought questions and statements to her huge following.

Who: Anna Kendrick

Followers: 2.5m

Twilight actress Anna is our favourite kind of celebrity - poking fun at herself and allowing us an insight into her relatively low-key lifestyle.



Who: Mindy Kaling

Followers: 3m

Unsurprisingly, comedian and actress Mindy has a hilariously candid Twitter feed. Best of all is her tweeting other celebrities- such as BFFs Ellen Page, Rainn Wilson and Ike Barinholtz.

Who: Tina Fey

Followers: 477 K

Well the comedic genius was never going to have a boring Twitter was she? With a surprisingly low number of followers considering, the Mean Girls creator offers an honest yet thought provoking commentary on American society.

Who: Lena Dunham

Followers: 1.6m

The Girls creator is often heralded as the voice of her generation. Nonconformist Lena is every bit as smart and rebellious as we would hope her to be.

Who: Miranda Hart

Followers: 1.56m

British funny woman Miranda is famously socially awkward- which makes for excellent Twitter material.

Who: Chrissy Teigen

Followers: 443k

Proving you can have it all- model and Mrs. John Legend is one of the funniest women on Twitter. Just take a look at her bio if you need re-assuring:

“Demotivational speaker / No cindy crawford / Aspiring magician / Sole creator of If Banksy were a dog he would be called Barksy joke”

Who: Dawn O’Porter

Followers: 361k

Acclaimed author, TV personality and other half of Chris O’Dowd, Dawn is a womans-woman as her tweets most often relate to wine, weather or complaining of some sort, often taking the words right out of our mouth!


Who: Kaley Cuoco

Followers: 1.9m

Actress Kaley is America’s sweetheart, and her Twitter attests to this. Expect smiley selfies, snaps of her puppies, and the occasional sentimental #tbt to her days on the hit show 8 Simple Rules.
