1. Fake AP Stylebook @fakeapstylebook
Journalism nerds, rejoice, there are other people out there that get your (probably bad) sense of humor! The only thing more fun than the real AP Stylebook (don’t lie, you love it) is the fake AP Stylebook. It answers all your burning style questions like grey vs. gray (“Use ‘gray’ to describe the color, ‘grey’ to describe the hue”) or just does what it can to keep you up to date (“Rmove a sngle vwel frm ech wrd n headlnes t sty currnt wth technlogy trnds lke flickr nd tumblr”).
Worth favoriting: “While it’s tempting to call them ‘baristi’ because of the Italian roots, the plural of ‘barista’ is ‘journalism majors.’”
2. Sorority Girl Problems @sororityproblem
You don’t have to be in a sorority to appreciate sorority girl problems’ tweets—just a whiny, college-aged student. While it’s easy to call this is a satirical Twitter, we have to be thankful for @sororityproblem for pointing out the big problems in the world, like diets, hangovers and cold weather.
Worth favoriting: My biggest fear? That I might never care about someone as much as I care about this vodka tonic right now. #SGP
3. HomerConnect @homerconnect
Next time you get really angry about registering or picking housing, remember that HomerConnect has feelings too. And apparently, he saves all those feelings for his “ladyfriend blackboard.” Basically, if you’re going to bitch about our good friend HC, his twitter is ready to bitch back. But really, let’s be honest, I’m just including this in hopes that I get a good time ticket for Fall 2011 registration.
Worth favoriting: Didn’t get the classes you wanted? That’s okay. Taking your seventh math gen ed instead of classes for your major will be TOTALLY RAD!!
4. Bronx Zoo Cobra @bronxzooscobra
Mia, the newly-named cobra that escaped from the Bronx Zoo, is the center of the biggest snake-related embarrassment to happen to humankind since that whole episode with Adam and Eve. Snakes on a Plane is a close third. In case you were wondering what Mia was doing while she was out on town, you can re-live her big, cageless adventures in New York on her Twitter.
Worth favoriting: A lot of people are asking how I can tweet with no access to a computer or fingers. Ever heard of an iPhone? Duh.
5. Jesus Christ @jesus
One of twitter’s greatest uses is allowing famous people to interact with their fan base. And let’s be honest, who is more famous than Jesus. With this twitter account, we’re able to see the extremely human and humble side of Jesus (whose self-described, 140-character bio says “Healer, Carpenter, God). He complains. He hangs out with his friends. He drinks. He tweets: Just proving Twitter to be, once again, the great equalizer.
Worth favoriting: And for my next magic trick… Water into Whisky!
