Laughter really is the best medicine and, thanks to Twitter, a good chuckle only needs 140 characters. We鈥檝e compiled a list of the funniest folks on the social media site so the next time you need to laugh, follow these handles and let hilarity ensue. And while you鈥檙e on a following spree, (#shamelessplug) make sure to follow @BritandCo!

1. Mindy Kaling, @mindykaling: We鈥檝e already declared 10 reasons why we love Mindy. Her Twitter account is one of 鈥檈m.

2. Every Tweet Ever, @EveryTweet_Ever: What鈥檚 trending? Every Twitter clich茅 sent out by this handle.

3. Conan O鈥橞rien, @ConanOBrien: The late-night host has 11.2 million followers, so it鈥檚 safe to say we鈥檙e not the only ones addicted to this Ginger. #sorrynotsorry

4. The Dark Lord, @Lord_Voldemort7: Wizards and Muzzles alike will laugh like they鈥檙e drunk off Butterbeer at the tweets typed by 鈥渉e who must not be named.鈥

5. Condescending Wonka, @OhWonka: This Twitter handle came to life in March 2012 after a surge of insulting Willy Wonka memes took over the Internet.

6. Ken Jennings, @kenjennings: Answer: This 74-time Jeopardy champ is a witty beast on Twitter. Question: Who is Ken Jennings?

7. Ronan Farrow, @RonanFarrow: The son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen is no stranger to Twitter controversy. The Twittersphere went bananas on Father鈥檚 Day when he tweeted, 鈥淗appy father鈥檚 day-or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law鈥檚 day.鈥

8. Lena Dunham, @lenadunham: Lena鈥檚 made a career out of having no filter and a wicked sense of humor. If her new book, Not That Kind of Girl (out 10/7), is anything like tweets, we鈥檒l be the first in line.

9. GS Elevator Gossip, @GSElevator: You know what they say: What happens in the Goldman Sachs elevators, stays in the Goldman Sachs elevators. Not.

10. Anna Kendrick, @AnnaKendrick47: We鈥檝e already declared our love for the dry-humored Pitch Perfect star once, but we have no problem doing it again鈥 and again鈥 and again. Basically, she鈥檚 our girl crush for life.

11. Betty F*ckin鈥 White, @BettyFckinWhite: Betty White is the biggest 92-year-old badass we know. This parody account takes her out of control sense of humor to a new level.

12. Billy Eichner, @BillyEichner: Billy on the Street is even funnier on Twitter.

14. Megan Amram, @meganamram: In a sea full of bad Twitter puns, this Parks + Recreation writer rises above them all with her sharp and often ridiculous sentiments.

15. Chris Kelly, @imchriskelly: You don鈥檛 need to tune into Saturday Night Live each week to get your dose of funny. This SNL writer brings the laughs throughout the day.

16. Kelly Oxford, @kellyoxford: She made Time magazine鈥檚 top 140 Twitter feeds list twice鈥 and she鈥檚 Canadian, eh!
