50 Funniest Twitter Accounts of 2014

50 Funniest Twitter Accounts of 2014:

It was an amazing year for funny stuff. Well, maybe not on TV or in the movies but on Twitter? Absolutely.

But not everyone had a great 2014. You’ll notice some of the biggest names in Twitter didn’t make this year’s list, which is a direct by-product of them leaving Twitter behind for more financially fulfilling endeavors. This list, like it is every year, is a who’s who of up-and-comers.

How were they chosen? Good question. First, they had to be f-ing hilarious. Next, they had to have a consistent timeline - no throwing every thought they had at the wall and deleting everything that doesn’t stick. A bad tweet is just as bad as a good tweet is good. And finally, they had to be a real person. No parody accounts or accounts that just steal material. Those suck.

So, without further ado, the funniest Tweeters of 2014.


50. BRADEN GRAEBER

Braden doesn’t tweet a lot, but when he does it’s carefully thought out, professionally edited, and definitely going to make you laugh.


49. BRANDON MCCARTHY

He pitches for the Yankees (or some other team if you’re reading this in the future), he’s funny, he likes sports and Calvin and Hobbes, and he’s got a hilarious wife to boot. What’s not to like?


48. ROB DELANEY

Everyone knows Rob Delaney so I’m not going to say anything you haven’t heard before. He’s lewd, crude, hairy, and hilarious.


47. MARY CHARLENE

Not only is MC (no idea if people call her that) extremely funny, she’s also an artist. And big surprise here, her artwork is also pretty damn clever.


46. SAGE BOGGS

Sage is one of those Twitter comedians (is that a thing?) that seems to never make a comedy misstep.


45. LAURA BENANTI

A talented actress as well as a comically gifted young lady, Laura lights up Twitter with gems like:


44. BRIDGER WINEGAR

Not only is Bridger a titan among men on Twitter, but I have it on good authority that he loves it when you make puns about his last name being close to the word “vinegar.” (I made this up, don’t do this.)


43. ANDY LASSNER

Andy is an executive producer on The Ellen Show, but his jokes aren’t quite as…wholesome as you might anticipate. (That’s a good thing.)


42. BEN SCHWARTZ

Ben plays Jean-Ralphio on Parks and Rec and is our second noted Calvin and Hobbes enthusiast on the list. That has nothing to do with anything. Here’s a funny tweet:


41. THYNEBEAR

Avatars of cartoon animals came into favor hard in 2014. While some people hide behind these avatars, let me assure you that Mr. Bear is just as funny and nice as his avatar portrays.


40. CLARKE KANT

Okay this tweet wasn’t in 2014 but it’s just too good not to share. Trust me there are plenty from this year as well.


39. RISTOLABLE

His profile says it all. “I write jokes.” Well I guess he left out the word “hilarious” so I take back my first statement.


38. NICEST HIPPO

Could a hippo be nicer? I think not. Could a hippo be funnier? Only if he were purple and wearing a hat. Oh wait…

(Seriously though he is super nice.)


37. CAPRICE CRANE

Caprice is a novelist, screenwriter, producer, and a funny mofo. Also, she’s a really nice person. Proof (of the funny part):


36. CHASE MITCHELL

If you don’t like reading a lot of extra words, Chase Mitchell is your man. He’s not one to waste time, and gets right to the funny.


35. DUBSTEP4DADS

Dubstep has made a ton of funniest twitter account lists and deservedly so. He’s one of the kings of the alternative joke format.


34. KEVIN FARZAD

Just read this tweet. Enough said.


33. SARAH BEATTIE

Don’t let the avatar picture fool you, there’s a reason she gets so many retweets. (Spoiler: It’s because she’s funny.)


32. ELI TERRY

Eli’s a New York comedian. I’m not sure he’s the best New York comedian on the 2014 list but I’d challenge you to find me a better one.


31. MOLLY KATS

Buckle up for some hilarity, Molly Kats is here and she’s got funny jokes just like always.


30. RANDI LAWSON

Speaking of hilarity, Randi Lawson is amazing in that regard. And she didn’t even pay me to say that.


29. DAN MENTOS

Dan enjoys long walks on the beach, playing checkers against his pet turtle Barnaby, and writing extremely funny tweets like this one.


28. JEFF WYSASKI

The brains behind the Pleated Jeans website, Jeff is a great mix of unique joke formats and really funny material.


27. JACY CATLIN

Jacy is unlike pretty much everyone else on this list. He doesn’t tell you what’s funny, he shows you. (And he has the best website name of all time: I Eat and Drink Diarrhea


26. KEN JENNINGS

You know Ken from his time being smart on 'Jeopardy!’ On Jeopardy! he had to be Smart! but on Twitter! he can just be Funny! And he is.


25. TIM SIEDELL

Tim is a writer on the upcoming The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and it makes sense that he got a job that pays him to make jokes because he’s really good at it.


24. MIKE GINN

Mike lives in Washington if you want to go stalk him because he’s so damn funny. Just an idea, not a suggestion.


23. KEET POTATO

Mr. Potato is another from the new school of joke construction. He doesn’t so much write jokes as write mini sketches of hilarity and absurdity.


22. CEE JOYNER

Cee Joyner is one of the most liked twitter joke-writers among twitter joke-writers. It makes sense because he writes jokes like this:


21. TASTE FACTORY

His name is Patrick. He has a kitten as a head/face. And he’s very good at writing funny jokes.


20. DANNY ZUKER

Mr. Zuker has a comedy resume that might be longer than everyone else on the list combined. But that doesn’t stop him from being delightful on Twitter like all the time.


19. OH NO SHE TWITNT (FORMERLY ANN COULTERGEIST)

No matter what you call her, she’s just great. Social commentary, witty observations, and hilarious god damn jokes.


18. JONNIFER LOPEZ

I’m not exactly sure what to make of Jonnifer. He’s a bit of a mystery but that mystery just adds to the allure of his tweets.


17. JEN STATSKY

I first sought out Jen when I saw her name on one of my favorite Parks and Rec episodes of all time. Since then I’ve been in full support of Team Statsky and her amazing tweets.


16. MARK LEGGETT

Finally, someone from New Zealand makes the list! And what an addition he is. Mark combines the power of humor you desire with the absurdness you need.


15. KYLE LIPPERT

Kyle is a super-nice fellow who lives in New York and tweets hilarious shit like, “Being popular on Twitter is like sitting at the cool table in the cafeteria at a mental hospital.” and:


14. CHARLENE deGUZMAN

Relatable and funny? You want relatable and funny?!? I present to you Charlene deGuzman.


13. RAD MILK

Rad Milk may turn off a few people with his borderline insensitive tweets but that’s why you should love him. I don’t think anyone would accuse him of not saying what’s on his mind and also milk is totally rad.


12. FRED DELICIOUS

Mr. Delicious brings the funny from Britain and he brings it hard. Another account that has been on numerous 'Best of Twitter’ lists and rightfully so because, well, just check him out.


11. JULIEANNE SMOLINSKI

Better known as Boobs Radley, Julieanne is one of the best of the best. There’s a reason she has 150k+ followers and that reason is funny. She started off 2014 with this masterpiece:


10. JOMNY SUN

Top 10! And what better way to start than Jomny Sun. Jomny is one of those accounts that keeps Twitter interesting. I’m convinced he spells stuff wrong on purpose so readers are forced to really pay attention to his tweets. Pretty sure he’s a genius.


9. ROB FEE

Rob is a Twitter fixture. Almost everyone on this list has had some interaction with Rob and it’s almost guaranteed you have read something funny he has written since he writes for about 13,000 websites. And the funny is always there.


8. KUMAIL NANJIANI

You may recognize him from the show Silicon Valley where he plays a downright hilarious computer engineer. And in a turn of events that surprises no one, he’s great on Twitter too.


7. MIKE SCOLLINS

Mike makes funnies at Funny or Die but I won’t hold that against him because just look at this tweet. LOOK AT IT. I’m convinced it’s one of the best tweets this century.


6. TARA SHOE

Like our #7 on the list, Tara is criminally underfollowed. She’s got one of the most creative voices on the list and needs a lot more people to hear (see?) it.


5. BUCKY ISOTOPE

When he’s not playfully feuding with (and destroying) other popular Twitter accounts, he’s putting words together to form sentences that always make you laugh. I’m guessing he’s the funniest person ever from Kansas.


4. BRIAN GAAR

In 2014 Brian put out a comedy album and worked on a comedy special but still somehow found time to be this good at Twitter. Where others have dropped off the map, he keeps getting stronger. I think he’s absorbing energy from lesser comedians he’s dueled along the way.


3. BRENDAN O'HARE

I read something once that Brendan is way too young to be this funny. That holds true today and seems to only get more true as the days go by. Sure Brendan is good with the words…

…but his photos are what really set him apart from the Twitter crowd.


2. ELLE DEBARGE

At last check Elle has 6,500 followers. Yet she has a long list of tweets that have more than 1,000 retweets. This just doesn’t make sense. She is way too funny to go undiscovered for much longer.


1. MURRMAN5

I hesitate to put a mystery Twitter account at #1 but Brent is just too funny to keep from touching the top spot. I mean, he has a bear surfing a shark away from a tornado as an avatar. What’s better than that? Oh right, his tweets. I don’t think he’s ever pressed send on a bad one. And that, kids, is why he’s the funniest Twitter account of 2014.


Matt is the senior humor editor at Playboy.com. He apologizes if his opinions don’t line up with yours. You can yell at him (or praise him?!?) on Twitter: @mattsurely.

Note: the account snorklhuahua was on the original top 50 list but as of 'print’ time, this account was deactivated :(.
