Follow Friday: @FranGillespie

Everybody is a comedian on Twitter, but only a select few are worthy enough to have all of their witticisms transmitted to you, the ever busy comedy fan trying to navigate through an increasingly congested internet. Every Friday we’ll make your life a little bit easier by introducing you to an individual who consistently makes us laugh. You’re welcome.

(If you’re reading this from an RSS feed, jump on over to the website where you can actually view the tweets.)
