Follow all of these people right now
Twitter's great and all, but everyone knows how easy it is for it to descend into a shitshow of negativity and moaning.
So you need it to bring the funny. And in order for it to do that, you need to be following some good people.
Here are 13 Irish accounts you might not have come across – and following them all is guaranteed to make your Twitter experience approximately 497% better.
1. Elaine Igoe
Could hardly start anywhere else. One of the most wickedly, consistently hilarious people on the web – in Ireland and beyond – she's guaranteed to make you guffaw at least once a week.
We can't show you her tweets here unfortunately, but you if you start following her on Twitter right now we promise you won't regret it.
2. Kate Demolder
A relatively recent addition to the team here at Lovin Dublin, Kate's generally at her best when talking about food.
Which is pretty much always.

3. Caoimhe O'Reilly
With tweets that will make you wonder how she stole your thoughts, Caoimhe documents late-20s life strugs in a way that will leave future historians baffled and intrigued in equal measure.
Because I was raised on a diet of teen movies I genuinely believe people won't recognise me when I've my glasses on and hair up.— Caoimhe (@caoimherrr) October 20, 2015
4. Fiona Hyde
Scathing, cutting, pop-culture-laden feminist brilliance.
Why won't they give Mr Tayto a Mrs Tayto? He spends his days alone in a horrorscape of isolation, the only of his species to walk the earth— Finona Hyder (@andgoseek) October 16, 2015
4. Alan Maguire
He's the guy behind the Not The RTÉ Guide account, which is fantastic in itself – but his personal account also yields daily brilliance.

Aoife will make you want to fave her tweets so often that you'll begin to feel like you're coming on a bit strong.
6. Chris Greene
Not quite so little-known, given he presents a programme on national radio and all that – but his piss-taking of social media eejitry is a wonder to behold.
If we win against Poland tonight I actually think we're going to develop such a national confidence we'll start invading countries— Chris Greene (@HateChrisGreene) October 11, 2015
7. Ruthe Phoenix
How does she do it?
Really worried about my parrot. He keeps saying "I can't go on. I hate my life." My roommate is too selfish to notice. Always busy crying.— Ruthe Phoenixmas (@RuthePhoenix) May 15, 2014
Amen, Grace. Amen.
His username is pronounced 'Poverty', we think.

You're literally in Ibiza for a week. You'll be home on Tuesday. We've already arranged to collect you from the airport.
11. Roxanna Nic Liam
This UK-based actor is an absolute gem on stage, as anyone lucky enough to have seen her will know – but she's equally good online.

12. Sean Leahy
Again, someone who will make you wonder how someone can be so consistently and brilliantly funny, yet not be a bajillionaire.
Mind you, maybe he is a bajillionaire. Who knows.

13. Neasa Conneally
A medical student whose cynical game is strong, but offset by a cracking wit and turn of phrase.
