My twitter feed is getting overloaded with funny people. The latest is the Fake AP Stylebook

Well, I guess that might be that. I can see this going from cute funny to trying to hard funny.

The most insane person I've been following lately has to be Coach Coley, FSU OC. He tweets as he goes around recruiting and while I don't understand him much I love it.

https://twitter.com/CoachColey

"FEAR THE SPEAR - It's OUR world SEMINOLES, time to take it BACK!!!! "

"whats a goon to a GOBLIN..... ha, call MR COLEY cause i can make these TWEETS rock... guess where i'm at??? 007 at it again! "

"i keep doing my own thing, walking TALL against the rain.... have I mentioned "WE ARE.. YES I SAID WE ARE"..."

"SEMINOLES - heading into the 504 - Gotta love the DIRTÝ DIRTY - U Cant STOP the CHOP!!!!"

As far as "celebrities" go:

A host of USF coaches

Jon Hodgeman - sometimes funny, often not

Wil Wheaton - I had never heard of this guy before. I'm pretty sure I've never seen anything he's ever been in. But I love him.

Bill Amend - guy who writes Foxtrot

A host of ESPN personalities covering college football and the NFL. Trey Wingo is the most interesting Tweeter out of them.

I did follow Bill Simmons, but I had to stop because he is SO ANNOYING. Everything he Tweets is either some whiny bullshit or some stupid hair-brained theory he throws out there for no discernable reason. Oh wait, just like his columns. I guess it's my own fault.

Pro Bowl cornerback Mike Jenkins

The Jack in the Box mascot. He's good for a laugh a day typically.

And then a bunch of people already mentioned in this thread. FakeAPStylebook I'll throw another shout out to, that thing is high comedy.

Unless I am confusing him with someone else (his Twitter handle is wilw, right?), he starred as Wesley Crusher in the Star Trek: The Next Generation series.

Yes, that's him, and I know that now, but I've never seen Star Trek.

    Yes, that's him, and I know that now, but I've never seen Star Trek.

Other than Wesley Crusher, he's most known as one of the kids from "Stand By Me". Not River Phoenix, not Corey Feldman, not Jerry O'Connell (the fat one), but the other one.

My updated list of people I follow is:
ActuallyNPH (Neil Patrick Harris)
StephenAtHome (Stephen Colbert, infrequently updated)
TravisYanan (Travis Yanan, the guy I get cable TV ratings from)
FakeAPStylebook (the name speaks for itself)
TFLN (the best submissions to the textsfromlastnight.com website)
KenTremendous (Mike Schur, writer of "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation"; Dwight's cousin Mose; previously "Ken Tremendous" of FireJoeMorgan.com)
sportsguy33 (Bill Simmons)
wootoff (woot.com, which specializes in selling one product per day. When they are in woot-off, they have stuff that is available for sale while supplies last, which is sometimes only 5 minutes).
AlYankovic ("Weird Al" Yankovic, who correctly guessed that he would be losing the Grammy to Stephen Colbert).
wilw (Wil Wheaton)
jim_sterling (Jim Sterling, controversial writer of video game website destructoid.com)
levarburton (Levar Burton, yet another Star Trek: TNG alum. I had Brent Spiner as well, but I think I got annoyed with him)
asym (Asymmetric Productions, the makers of "Kingdom of Loathing")
zefrank, JonathanCoulton, JohnCleese, PaulandStorm (pretty sure I mentioned them all previously)
and various webcomics people (cwgabriel, rstevens, wigu, pvponline, krisstraub, loresjoberg, hijinksensue)
and oh yeah, all of the characters from the webcomic Questionable Content (fayewhitaker, tai_fighter, marigoldfarmer, pintsize0101, penelopegaines, hanneloreEC, dorabianchi, martenreed, XxSexyRavenxX, and svenbianchi). The creator of that comic has his characters communicating with each other on twitter! Absolutely insane!

Hold up -- Lauren Bacall -- Lauren Bacall -- has a Twitter!? That is simultaneously totally surreal and totally awesome.

What does she have to say about the Oscars?

"oh yes why do starlets today have such bad posture? That Montana girl and that Twilight girl slouch like potato sacks."

Ah ha ha ha!

Wow... Sorry about that, I usually check for that stuff before I follow someone but I started following him before all of that verification stuff came into play. It's been a while since I've watched Colbert Report, if you can't tell. Now excuse me while I go catch up on all of his tweets...
