  14. Matthew Simmons

      Kanye West.


  15. Matthew Simmons

      Seriously, ditto Ryan and Gene’s. And Amelia’s. (And, fuck it: Blake’s. Call me a kiss-ass. Blake is hilarious.)

      I like the Harry Stephen Keeler twitter feed.

      Anne Boyer’s is fantastic.

      colson whitehead’s twitter seriously bums me out hard.

  31. mark leidner


  32. Matthew Simmons
  33. Blake Butler

      for twitter haters, you two sure are edgy and succinct.

  34. jereme_dean

      i don’t have twitter but i do see his tweet reposts on FB: MATT DEBENEDICTIS

      dude is a unicorn mangler.

  35. jereme_dean

      i think you should stick to tweeting about cake.

  36. Christopher Higgs

      I like to look at Kanye West’s twitter and Ron Artest’s twitter. I know I’m probably improperly conjugating the word “twitter” — I can never figure it out. Should I say, I like to look at West’s and Artest’s twitter page or twitter entries or tweets or twitters or what? I don’t get it. I feel like an old man whenever my students talk about twittering tweets or whatever it is; ah fuck it, it doesn’t matter. I think West and Artest say some golden stuff on their individual twitter websites. They should team up and put out a book on the new Cash Money book label. That is what should happen.

      Mark Leidner, no doubt.

  40. damon

      yes. I see a sit-com out of this Kanye/Cash Money deal.

  41. Salvatore Pane

      I’m un-ironically going to have to say Kanye West and especially 50 Cent. Have you seen his? It was controlled by his handlers for awhile and then, somehow, 50 got control of the thing and just started threatening people, propositioning women, and saying that he was going to kill everyone at TweetPhoto if they didn’t make their password system easier to figure out within the next three seconds. Seriously. Check that shit out.

      As for writers, I like Brian Oliu, Ameila Gray, Dan Chaon and Matt Fraction.

  44. reynard seifert

      nicholas sparks because i’ve always wondered what a horse dreams about when it’s on ketamine

  46. John Minichillo

      MOtke Dapp, y’all. Friend him on the FB.

      Here’s a sample:

      I just stapled some whiskey into a flat piece of paper and called it Cheetos. Other people call it “Wednesday.”

  47. Guest

      Matt Fraction is hilarious.

  48. John Minichillo

      Kanye Jordan:

      Put “Liz Lemon” in front of Kanye’s tweets and he becomes Tracy Jordan.

  49. Richard Hellinga

      Maud Newton and Colson Whitehead

  50. Doug

      I like Roxane’s Twitter exchanges with xTx.
