Ahh, Twitter...the gift that keeps on giving. Twitter is a beautiful little black hole that allows us to reel out our inner divas, sit back, and watch celebrity drama and political scandal unfold.
In 2016, the internet declared Twitter dead—it was rapidly losing users and advertisers, and there was no light at the light at the end of the tunnel in sight. However, slowly but surely, Twitter has found that light, reclaiming its high-ranking status within the sea of social platforms and online banter. The age of Twitter’s comeback is now, and there are so many reasons to create an account.
Nothing is more therapeutic than scrolling through Twitter to see hysterical memes and your favorite celebrities venting about what’s going on in their lives. Many women have turned to Twitter to make their voices heard, and these ten women are absolutely killin’ it. With topics ranging from pop culture commentary to outrageous things their children say, if you can get through just two of their tweets without bursting into laughter, you can pat yourself on the back:

Kelly Oxford is the pinnacle of a Twitter star. After becoming a stay-at-home mother, she turned to Twitter to share her motherhood experience and her kids’ brilliant takes on life.
