You know how you get all excited that your favorite celebrity or brand gets on Twitter, and you immediately follow, only to be disappointed? Maybe it’s because they rarely tweet, or worse, their tweets are so boring you’d fall asleep even after downing a can of Monster.
There are, however, some brands that are rocking it on Twitter, making their followers laugh, feel good, and probably getting new customers out of their efforts. Whether they are modern brands with stores using iPad POS systems, or they’re service providers, or they’re eCommerce websites on Shopify, there are some amusing Twitter accounts to follow. Here are some of the most entertaining brands on Twitter.
Who would have thought that an airline would be entertaining? Doesn’t everyone complain about airlines after all? Well, Delta’s social media team is doing it right with tweets keeping up with pop culture.

3. Dunkin’ Donuts
Dunkin’ Donuts coffee – I love, and their donuts, of course. The brand is also doing great on Twitter, not only with their branding, but also with how they respond to tweets and handle complaints. Additionally, they hold promos that also incorporate current events.

7. Old Spice
Ah, who could ever forget those series of commercials with The Old Spice Guy, who made every other guy in the world feel inadequate? While he may not be the biggest thing these days, the brand is still doing it on Twitter. Just look at the quips below, and you’ll see what I mean.

Each moment is a gift. And each moment is stressful. That’s why they call it the present tense.
