Twitter is a very handy social media outlet that can be used to expand your audience and help you make some friends. Try to think of tweets that you would want to read or tweets that you would share with your own followers in order to get the biggest bang out of each 140 character string of words. Try to stick with safe and relatable humor for the best response. You do not want to turn people off with crude humor, especially if you are representing a business or brand.
Let’s face it: sometimes, it can be a challenge to keep your Twitter account exciting and fun. Here are some ideas of funny things to tweet when you’re out of ideas.
Quick and funny tweets are always winners on Twitter. Here are some examples:
1. 43 percent of statistics are made up.
2. Out of my mind. Back in five minutes.
3. A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don’t need it.
4. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
5. Borrow money from a pessimist–they don’t expect it back.
6. Always remember that you are unique–just like everyone else.
Something funny or ironic to think about.
There are many questions that can’t really be answered, but are intriguing. Asking questions or making statements about them will surely get a response from your followers. Some possible tweets include:
7. Why is “abbreviation” such a long word?
8. All generalizations are false.
9. What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
Sad but true statements.
Struggles in life are relatable. When you point them out with a little humor, you are sure to get responses and many shares. Basically, if something is bugging you, try to think of something funny about the situation. Here are some examples:

Statements or complaints that include oxymorons and make you do a double-take are always winners. Some examples include:
17. Ask me about my vow of silence.
18. The word “gullible” isn’t in the dictionary.
19. Honk if you like peace and quiet.
