Followers: 1.5 million
Sample tweet: "I hope one day I am rich enough so that somebody I trust can embezzle millions from me."

Michael Ian Black is nothing if not prolific on Twitter. In a barrage of daily posts, replies and retweets, Black brandishes the absurd, sometimes dark humor he sharpened as a member of famed comedy troupes the State and Stella. A former talking-head staple of VH1 series like I Love the 80s, Black combines daily-life observations with pop-culture references in his tweets, creating gems like "Why would mama say to knock you out?" and "Seeking large grant to conduct scientific study intended to disprove the "mo' money, mo' problems" theory."
