News Tweeps to Follow For the lulz

  • Oct 5, 2009
Why read dry, boring news when you can get your lulz on from these awesome tweeps?

now following
The Onion (TheOnion)
The Onion (TheOnion) on Twitter
With tweets to articles with headlines such as "Arby's Debuts New Postapocalyptic Sandwich Deals" and "Husband Still Faithful After 42 Years Of Trying To Cheat", this is, hands down, definitely my most reliable news source out of all the ones on this list.

Funny or Die (funnyordie)
funnyordie (Twitter Feed)
Okay, this isn't exactly news news, but the site does does make timely spoof videos about politics and other current events. Furthermore, they make funny, personal tweets quite a bit, such as these ones, "When someone responds w/ 'that's interesting' they're usually trying to tell you to shut up because you're boring" and "RT this if you purchased a Twinkie this weekend b/c of Zombieland". Now I want a twinkie.

Weird News (weirdnews)
weirdnews (Twitter Feed)
Weird News seeks out the weirdest of weird news from various sites and tweets them out. Headlines include "UFO Abductee Claims Tom Cruise was Best Mate", "Sexy Optical Butt Illusion". And no, this isn't like The Onion; this stuff is fo' realz.

gawker
gawker (gawker) on Twitter
A news site with a 'tude and a sick sense of humor that's mostly entertainment news, but has a splash of political news once in a while. Headlines include "Maybe Jewish Iranian President Ahmadinejad Now Has Power To Nuke His Guilty Past" and "Another Reality TV Contestant Accused of Murder, But There's a Twist!".
5
now following
Cracked.com (cracked)
Cracked.com (cracked) on Twitter
Okay, not exactly a news site either, but again, timely posts once in a while. Witty headlines include "How to Watch the Jay Leno Show (If You Absolutely Have To)" and "7 Hilariously Failed Attempts at Politically Correct Toys". Oh man...

What did you think of this list?
