10 Parody Twitter Accounts to Get You Through a Dull Work Day

Parody Twitter accounts are old news, but on rough workday, they offer such relief. Before you set your computer on fire as an excuse to go home early, check out some of these twitter accounts. Sometimes you just need a good laugh to get you through.

1. @tldrwikipedia

A shortened and snarkier version of Wikipedia. If you only follow one of these accounts, make it this one.

2. @AcademicsSay

You don’t have to be in academia to relate to this parody account. Here’s your chance to relive the joys of interacting with professors.

3. @BoredElonMusk

Sure, the real Elon Musk is a genius, but @BoredElonMusk is a genius and entertaining. Follow this account for innovative inventions and ideas.

4. @SarcasticRover

Want more science-related humor? Follow the insightful and completely made up thoughts of the Mars rover Curiosity.

5. @GuyInYourMFA

If science isn’t your thing, maybe literature is. @GuyInYourMFA is infuriatingly and hilariously pretentious.

6. @notzuckerberg

Of course Mark Zuckerberg has his own parody account. Disgruntled, but nonetheless addicted Facebook users will get some giggles out of this.

7. @BiIIMurray

A Twitter account full of eccentric thoughts that could feasibly be attributed to Bill Murray. I like to believe he really is behind the account.

8. @Queen_UK

Loved the royal wedding? Can’t get enough of Prince George? Get a dose of British humor from this parody account of Queen Elizabeth II.

9. @Lord_Voldemort7

Dripping with sarcasm and this time from He Who Must Not Be Named. Here’s a parody account for people who still can’t get enough of Harry Potter.

10. @DystopianYA

A newer parody account that is without a doubt my favorite. If you love young adult fiction, do yourself a favor and read the tweets from the beginning. #worthit

Bonus: @dailymuse

Don’t forget to follow us for a steady stream of career and job search advice (when you’re done with your break, of course)!
