I’ve been thinking of writing this post for awhile, but hesitated because I thought it was kind of dumb and self-indulgent. Who would possibly waste their time reading a list of my favorite novelty Twitter accounts? And then I realized that I’d totally waste my time reading someone else’s list of these. So here we go. Everyone’s got their favorite novelty Twitter accounts. Here’s a list of mine.
@ManWhoHasItAll | Man Who Has It All — Extra-facetious social commentary on how we treat professional women. These tweets have got me howling at my desk on the regular.
"My wife actually respects men. She thinks they are every bit as equal as women. She's great. I'm so lucky," Matt, 35

@GoatUserStories | Goat User Stories — This will mostly only be funny if you’re in the web development/UI design/product management world, but cute goat pics and goat puns are universal. The woman behind this account was at Write/Speak/Code and I fangirled a little. Also, she’ll be at Abstractions this week, with stickers!
As a goat I want an open office plan so that you can interrupt me in the spirit of collaboration and ineffectiveness pic.twitter.com/t5i4o0kGTX

@KimKierkegaard | Kim Kierkegaardashian — Need a little philosophy with your pop culture? Whoever’s behind this has got you covered, and will have you in stitches. I just really wish that Kim Kierkegaardashian were a real person in this world.
UGH I'm skipping workouts and eating bad!! But to despair over earthly things is a step towards despair of the eternal.

@SunofSeldo | Here Comes the Sun — This one’s on a bit of a hiatus right now, because yay summer! During the winter, this account tweets how much closer we’re getting to daylight savings time. Super helpful if, like me, you just can’t deal with winter darkness come February.
Sunset was at 6.12pm today, there were 2 minutes and 26 seconds extra daylight, and we’re nearly there!

@EmergencyPugs | Emergency Pugs — This needs no explanation.

@PepitoTheCat | Pépito — Some person in France hooked up a motion sensor camera and set up a bot to tweet a photo of this cat every time it exits or enters through its cat door. I’ve considered unfollowing, as it’s pretty uneventful — literally a cat’s comings and goings — but there’s something soothing about knowing that Pépito gets home safely at night. Apparently almost 14,000 people agree with that.
