Funniest Tweeps a-Tweetin'?

Steve Saul | 17:09 UK time, Wednesday, 19 January 2011



Another week and another Top 10 Comedy Tweeters list is doing the rounds...

This week Top Social Media bods have used PeerIndex to compile this list of the ten most influential comedians tweeting right now:

  1. Stephen Fry - @StephenFry
  2. Eddie Izzard - @EddieIzzard
  3. Graham Linehan - @glinner
  4. Russell Brand - @rustyrockets
  5. Alan Carr - @alancarr
  6. Jonathan Ross - @wossy
  7. David Mitchell - @realdmitchell
  8. Armando Ianucci - @aiannucci
  9. John Cleese - @johncleese
  10. Simon Pegg - @simonpegg


While it is a tad surprising that some ingenious comedians who use Twitter brilliantly don't appear (eg, Peter Serafinowicz, Rufus Hound, Holly Walsh, David Schneider and Steve Martin), it seems we always see the same names in a different order when it comes to these lists.

We want to know about the hidden gems that never feature in lists like these.

Who are the funniest people on Twitter?

Post your recommendations below and we'll #FF as many as we can on Friday.
