Look, we know you love The Frisky — and we love you too! Which is why we’d like to introduce you to some very special friends of ours; hilarious and smart ladies we recommend you start following on Twitter. After the jump, a short list of some of our readin’, writin’, bloggin’ and critiquin’ faves.
And please, share your favorite Twitter frayuns in the comments!
(Of course, you can always follow us, too: @xoamelia, @havethehabit, @amibeth78, @winonarose and @jessicawakeman.)
Megan Amram’s Twitter feed (@meganamram) is like a fever dream of crazy one-liners.
Sara Barron (@achillesfoopz) I laugh out loud at pretty much everything this woman writes. She has such a uniquely funny perspective on the minutiae of life.
Trish Bendix (@trishbendix blogs at the lesbian pop culture blog After Ellen and I read her stuff every day. She’s always got her finger on the pulse of what’s going on in LGBT-land.
Gabrielle Bernstein (@gabbybernstein) is a modern self-help “guru” with a truly legit spiritual message. Follow her on Twitter and you will always have someone on your feed reminding you that all the love you desire is within.
Susannah Breslin (@iamsusannah) is a former Frisky staffer and current blogger at Forbes.com. She’s always been a total rabblerouser, but Amelia really loves the writing she’s been doing about battling breast cancer.
Irin Carmon (@IrinCarmon) at Salon.com is one of the best young journalists out there. I also learn from her Twitter feed, to say nothing of the work she produces.
Anna Goldfarb (@shmittenkitten) is a tall drink of water and a a giant comedy genius.
Amanda Hess (@AmandaHess) used to write a ladyblog at the Washington City Paper, which was one of the best I’ve ever seen.
Anna Holmes (@annaholmes is the former editor-in-chief of Jezebel and currently writes op-eds for the Washington Post. So, no, she’s not terribly accomplished or anything.
Xeni Jardin (@xeni) is the founder of Boing Boing and is, hands down, one of the smartest people on Twitter and the web.
Maris Kreiszman (@mariskreizman) is the brain behind Slaughterhouse 90210, a blog which combines screenshots from popular TV shows with quotes from important, impactful, great novels. It’s Kurt Vonnegut meets Brenda Walsh.
Kat Kinsman (@kittenwithawhip) is the editor of CNN food blog Eatocracy and knows her celeriac leaves from her cereal bars.
Julie Klausner (@julieklausner) is so very funny, and also a redhead, so therefore my favorite.
Lilit Marcus’s beauty blogging for Racked is awesome and her dating/relationship posts for How About We are great. And if you hate your boss, you have to read her book, Save The Assistants!
Corinne Marshall (@corinnemarshall) is one of Ami’s best friends, but that’s irrelevant. She has the best self-deprecating one-liners on Twiiter.
Molly McAleer is funny and relatable, and it’s been really cool to watch her go from “internet personality” to co-founder of Hello Giggles and writer for 2 Broke Girls.
Sure you can read Almie Rose on Hello Giggles these days, but we’ve been done following her on her own ridiculously funny blog Apocalypstick for a while. She also Twitters (@apocalypstick) like a pro.
Let Sara Schaefer (@saraschaefer1) drop little nuggets of comedy on your Twitter feed.
Julieanne Smolinski (@boobsradley) is a friend IRL and one of the funniest people Twitter ever pooped out. Everything she does turns to gold.
If you’re obsessed with Kiki T’s Friskyscopes, then you should definitely follow her on Twitter (@astrosexologist) for even more astro updates.
Nubby Twiglet (@nubbytwiglet) is a Portland based designer with mad style. Love looking at her photo roundups every week.
Sarah Von Bargen (@yesandyes) is a constant inspiration for traveling and living an interesting life.
Lindsey Weber (@lindseyweber) is a rap aficionado and once petted a mini-pony, so you should follow her. Also she knows everything fun happening on the Internet all the time.
Nona Willis Aronowitz (@nonawa) is a talented young journalist. She wrote this great book called Girl Drive where she went on a road trip across the country interviewing women about feminism.
Jamia Wilson (@jamiaw) is not only one of the kindest souls in the universe, but she’s a dedicated feminist media activist. If something important is going on, Jamia knows about it.
Your Aunt Diane (@yourauntdiane) is a fake Twitter that chronicles the lives and loves of everybody’s wackiest aunt. She’s usually making dream catchers and going to self-help workshops, as you do.
