Ellen DeGeneres

Followers: 6.2 million
Sample tweet: "I found out I'm George Washington's 8th cousin 9 times removed. The only other time I've been removed 9 times was from Oprah's holiday party."

She tweets photos of teddy bears made of potatoes, adorable bunnies drinking booze ("I thought they liked carrots," she writes), and lots and lots of pictures of babies and puppies. That's right, everyone: Ellen DeGeneres is just like us. She swears her tweets are authentic (her Twitter bio reads, "My tweets are real, and they're spectacular"). Whether the tweets are real or run by a brilliant p.r. team, her 6.2 million followers don't seem to mind as long as the TV host keeps the laughs coming.
