  • MC Hammer – The rapper, minister and reality TV star certainly has his share of eccentric tweets. I caught the “Red-Eye” and now it’s time for “Shut-Eye”!!! I had a little breakfast…. wait.. I might mess up my hair ! oh, Le coconut !!!
  • Shaquille O’Neal – The retired basketball star and commenter for the TNT basketball program blurs the line between brilliant art and completely dumfounding statements. Just leavn lebrons party, i have no voice, can u hear this , ………………. C i told u , no voice, lol
  • Conan O’Brien – As expected, the late-night talk show host has some humorous tweets. Apologies to Duke fans, but I really wanted Butler to win so I could write “The Butler Did It.”
  • Demetri Martin – Martin’s comedy is built on one-liners, so Twitter is perfectly suited for him. Last LA thing. Jamba Juice. Dude asks me what “boost” I want. So I asked if they had “superhero.”
