11 Funny Twitter Accounts You’re Probably Not Following

“…the best thing you can see on Twitter is a compact joke that doesn’t require you to link to something or show a picture. It’s just, “Boom, here’s a funny joke you can immediately enjoy.” There’s nothing I’d rather see than a joke in that little 140-character box.”

“…evolutionary anthropologist Thomas Flamson, who also studies humor, says that one measure of a good joke is that it uses the fewest possible words to convey the most possible meaning. Said Flamson, during an interview with Motherboard last year: “[T]he more information you can reference without explicitly stating, the more compressed the joke is, and (assuming the hearer knows that information too) the funnier it will be.”

“By this logic, Twitter helps joke writers make better jokes by forcing them to be brief. You can’t explain the ins and outs of a joke on Twitter, because there just isn’t enough room.”
