The Best Parody Twitter Accounts for Readers

Twitter is a great place to be for book lovers; from author accounts to publishing news, it really is a great place to get information and stay connected with literary goings-on. I’ve already told you about some great bookish accounts to follow, but if you’re looking for something a little bit different, try these ten awesome parody accounts. Bet you didn’t know Lord Voldemort could be so funny.


Laura Ingalls Wilder wants us to know exactly how difficult life on the Prairie is, and she isn’t afraid to call you out on your modern-day privilege.



The best of the Dark Lord accounts, this particular Voldemort is as nasty (and entertaining) as you’d expect him to be.



Sarcastic Willy Wonka started as a meme and continues doling out the advice you never needed.



You know him. You put up with him. Now you can openly laugh at him.



Feminist Hulk with smash the injustice right off of your screen.



The Prussian philosopher is generous with absurd truth bombs and bastardized quotes you definitely did not study in university.



The prolific Game of Thrones writer has a real account on Twitter, but this one is a lot of fun, with fake spoilers, sarcasm and a keen awareness of the abbreviated life spans of his main characters.



The most wizardingest wizard tweets about life at Hogwarts, dodging Voldemort’s threats, and is keenly aware of his popularity.



The most entertaining of the many Shakespeare parody accounts is this one, where the Bard’s poetic musings are mashed up with modern pop tunes. Don’t question it; just enjoy.



There are also a bunch of Mark Twain accounts, but this one is the most active, and dishes out a lot of unexpected, but wise, relationship advice.
