Follow Friday: @HasanMinhaj
A lot of Twitter users take to the platform to test out their latest jokes and quips, but certain people truly excel at making us laugh with the available characters and constraints. With the Internet being such a big place, it can be difficult to find the comedians most worthy of your RTs and favs. Each Friday we feature one person whose consistent short-form online humor deserves your attention and to be on your Twitter feed.

Before that, Minhaj had has his own web series, The Truth, which mixes social commentary and humor. He has also been a panelist on Chelsea Lately, appeared in the fourth season of Arrested Development, and was a regular on the improv prank show Disaster Date.
