Ashton Kutcher:Followers: 14,317,443
One of the early adopters of the social media juggernaut, @AplusK tweets often in support of charitable causes, famous friends and tech. When he's not too busy filming or promoting his latest works, you can find the former That 70's Show funnyman offering his best quips in 140 words or less.
I’m supporting Food Revolution Day because like @jamieoliver I believe food education & cooking skills can help save lives #FRD2013— ashton kutcher (@aplusk) May 17, 2013
Rainn WilsonFollowers: 3,601,699
Does following fewer people make you funnier? In the case of The Office star (and all-around funny freak) Rainn Wilson, not even a series finale can stop the Soul Pancake creator from tapping funny bones across the web. With over 3 million followers all anticipating the Few Options star's next move, you can surely bet that he's willing to share it with all of us.

Nathan FillionFollowers: 1,777,704
The man best known as Richard Castle loves his Twitter and isn't afraid to use it for positive means. Legions of fans anchor any project the Canadian-born actor champions, and in addition to cult cinephiles urging him to convince Joss Whedon to bring back Firefly (in addition to him starring as Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie), Fillion often uses Twitter to bring attention to hidden jokes in Castle episodes.
“@lgibbers: @nathanfillion Can I just say that you're one of my favorite people to follow on twitter?”Yes. Yes, you can.— Nathan Fillion (@NathanFillion) May 20, 2013
Seth Meyers:Followers: 1,872,611
Congratulations are in order to the Saturday Night Live head writer who'll take over Jimmy Fallon's Late Night slot in 2014. The "Really" jokester gives Easter eggs to followers by posting bonus SNL goodies among his own timely (and very nuanced) jokes.

Kurt Sutter:Followers: 250,119
Sons Of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is a rebel in all facets of his life. He's hard on the things he loves most, which is why his Twitter followers have a love-hate relationship with him. The notoriously venomous scribe has deactivated his account before, but it seems now that he's enjoying communicating with fellow rebels who enjoy his brand of fuckery.
if you tweet location pictures of any of my actors i'm going to block your spoilin' ass and you can consider yourself fucking dead to me.— kurt sutter (@sutterink) May 21, 2013
This affable comedian has managed to unlock the secret to all of this social media shenanigans: don't abuse the power. After conquering the comedy world with his ingenious premise of selling online streaming of his special for $5, Louis C.K. only tweets when the moment hits him. Something that his only followee (Colin Quinn) online can appreciate.
Well I'd be a real idiot (instead of a fake one) if I didn't say my standup special "Louie CK Oh My God" premieres on HBO tonight at 10pm.— Louis C.K. (@louisck) April 13, 2013
Chris Colfer:Followers: 1,847,246
You'll instantly forget that this character actor on Glee is only 21 when you follow him on Twitter. Life imitates art. As "Kurt" on the popular Fox show, he's consistently funny and charming, so it should come as no surprise that Colfer's updates are equally fantastic.
Saw this little guy at the pet store and had to take him home. Born with only one bulging eye! Going… instagram.com/p/ZgP6bTNdaH/— Chris Colfer (@chriscolfer) May 19, 2013
Amy Schumer:Followers: 382,794
The new Queen of the Dirty Joke is riding high on the horse with her new Comedy Central show. But instantly, the young comic catches people off guard by her Rolodex of legends (see: Mel Brooks), her cavalier attitude and her funny shots at her own Instagram photos. Masturbation anyone?!
Now who we supposed to bend it like?— Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) May 16, 2013
Shaquille O'Neal:Followers: 7,110,878
The retired big man may be shooting commercials and laughing it up with Kenny "The Jet" Smith, but his Twitter is equally full of funny. Full of Shaq-quotables and famous friends, Dr. Shaq O'Neal remains young at heart.

Conan O'Brien:Followers: 8,344,832
Conan rarely talks about the program he hosts, instead choosing to spew funny tweets about everything from dick pictures sent to Apple's Siri to women lying about their breast size.
According to a new survey, almost 10% of women lie about the size of their breasts. Which is why I always carry around measuring tape.— Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) May 20, 2013
Mindy Kaling:Followers: 2,313,223
The former The Office writer and star creates hilarious tweets full of endearment. Consistently one of the funniest people on the planet, Kaling tweets are good for fans who want to know all about her, including "Who was the best kisser on the show?" and "Why didn't her and B.J. Novak have any kids?"
Thanks guys for the #askmindy. Now go watch #TheOffice finale! Incidentally I'm surprised no one asked best kisser on #TheMindyProject— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) May 17, 2013
America's favorite fake news pundit captures the imaginations of the Twitterverse with his brand of politically minded tweets. The leader of the Colbert Nation racks up millions of followers with his whimsically newsy tweets that touch on the ever-confusing Benghazi scandal to Venezuela being short on toilet paper.
2NITE!: "Benghazi is the biggest scandal since sliced bread was caught funneling money to Nicaraguan death squads." @colbertreport, 11:30pm— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) May 21, 2013
Donald Glover:Followers: 948,046
Actor-rapper and all-around pop culture pimp, Donald Glover, has made sexy allusions his calling card. With the Community star working on new material alongside Ibra Ake, the guy who should play Spider-Man continues to provide plenty of solid laughs that keep us entertained and wanting more.

Aziz Ansari:Followers: 2,940,063
Armed with energy, enthusiasm and enough hip-hop references to make Rap Genius jealous, the colorful star of Parks and Recreation brings his absurd brand of funny to Twitter.
Hi. I just released my brand new standup special online on azizansari.com. Go buy it for $5! #DangerouslyDelicious RT PLS— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) March 20, 2012
Zach Braff:Followers: 1,104,408
The scribe behind Garden State and star of Scrubs is a self-described "Twitter friend" to over 1.1 million people through his page. When the New York City actor/screenwriter isn't "dry-humping pillows," you can find him steadily raising awareness for his personal Kickstarter project.
