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 accounts. Sometimes you just need a good laugh to get you through.
A shortened and snarkier version of Wikipedia. If you only follow one of these accounts, make it this one.

If science isn’t your thing, maybe literature is. @GuyInYourMFA is infuriatingly and hilariously pretentious.
Of course I don't expect most people to understand the meta-commentary about chronology I'm making with a tense change mid-sentence.— Guy In Your MFA (@GuyInYourMFA) February 21, 2015
Of course Mark Zuckerberg has his own parody account. Disgruntled, but nonetheless addicted Facebook users will get some giggles out of this.
Making a "Facebook for Work" site that lets employees collaborate because I want to expand into the 10% of time you're doing work at work.— Not Mark Zuckerberg (@notzuckerberg) November 17, 2014
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.

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.
Breaking News: You're still a Muggle.— The Dark Lord (@Lord_Voldemort7) April 12, 2014
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
