Top 5 showrunners to follow on Twitter

Kurt Sutter, Dan Harmon, Carter Bays tweet to fans

Kurt Sutter (@sutterink)
"Sons of Anarchy"

What to expect: Unfiltered, unabashed, un-PC opinion, much of it having nothing to do with his show. Sutter's got a mouth like a biker, but funnier.

Sample tweet: "Hey PETA, pull your head out of your dog's ass and get your priorities in order. Human beings, lawyers, then animals."

Dan Harmon (@danharmon)


What to expect: Movie quotes, snippets of "Bones" fan fiction and entertaining gripes about back pain.

Sample tweet: "I like to consider myself a young Apatow, because it makes me forget I'm old and not Apatow."

Carter Bays (@CarterBays)

"How I Met Your Mother"

What to expect: Stream-of-conscious jokes and breaking news about finishing the New York Times crossword puzzle.

Sample tweet: "Bummed to find out 'Precious' isn't a retelling of 'Silence of the Lambs' from the POV of Buffalo Bill's dog."

Bill Prady (@BillPrady)
"The Big Bang Theory"

What to expect: Nerd-tastic musings that seem plucked from Sheldon's brain.

Sample tweet: "FAQ: BigBangTheory Season 4 premieres THURSDAY, Sept. 23 at 8/7 Central. Be there or be a polygon with 4 equal sides and angles!"

Josh Schwartz (@JoshSchwartz76)
"Gossip Girl"

What to expect: The usual promo pseudo-spoilers spiced up with fun pop-culture references.

Sample tweet: "Chuck cast in Sannnnnn Diiiiiego (said in voice of Ron Burgundy)."


Not Tina Fey (@NotTinaFey)

What to expect: Infrequent but hilarious one-liners steeped in Fey's comic tone, complete with references to Ben & Jerry's and Cheetos.

Sample tweet: "Oh you kids these days. I can't tell which one is a hipster and which one's a hobo. You're all wearing beards, plaid and riding a bike."
