Twitter may have grown into one of the world’s premier professional tools for marketing, communication and promotion but let’s never forget that it’s also a great place for giving yourself a good laugh too.
There’s no shortage of genuinely hilarious tweeters out there; from comedians and comedy actors to the parody accounts and the celebs who happen to be as unintentionally amusing as they are dim! However, we’ve assembled a top 10 list of the accounts that are our ‘guilty pleasure’ favourites as they provide anything from a wry chuckle when we need it most on a Monday morning to a full-on belly laugh for that Friday feeling!
Follow them, enjoy and thank us later.
The Dark Lord @Lord_Voldemort7
He’s brooding, brilliant and more than a little amusing. The Dark Lord takes a satirical swipe at celeb society and current events with a Harry Potter twist.
James Martin @Pundamentalism
If you’re all about puns and clever wordplay, then James Martin is here for you. There’s a number of groaners in there for sure but it’s pun-ishingly funny stuff!
Picard Tips @PicardTips

It’s no easy task getting good press for the Death Star, but their PR team somehow manage to put a positive spin on planetary destruction.
Alan Garner @AlanHungover
Recent superstar of ‘The Hangover’ trilogy, Alan brings his no-holds-barred approach to Twitter. Keeping up with current affairs, there isn’t a subject that Alan doesn’t poke some, often surprisingly intellectual, fun at.
Lord Alan Sugar @Lord_Sugar
He’s the king of the boardroom one-liners; Lord Alan Sugar is an avid twitter user and often lets the microblogging community feel the edge of his trademark wit.

Charlie Sheen @charliesheen
After his spectacular public meltdown and subsequent kicking of all the drugs, Charlie Sheen has somehow managed to propel himself into the Twitter stratosphere with a mixture of truly baffling tweets that are often as amusing as they are incomprehensible.
Matthew Inman @Oatmeal
The creator of The Oatmeal online comic sensation, Matthew Inman has a very endearing if warped sense of humour that makes his Twitter account a haven from Monday morning blues. May contain adorable quirkiness.
Cheryl Kerl @CherylKerl
This phonetic parody account of what Geordie Goddess Cheryl Cole thinks and says is dynamite. Every tweet is golden as it’s spelled out in the lovable Geordie patois.
