We all know twitter to be a seemingly bottomless abyss of senseless, unnecessary, yet hilarious and brilliant thoughts, with people surprisingly managing to share the various details of their lives in 140 characters (or less). Somewhere deep in this abyss lies a particular group of people who will make you wonder “Why are Africans like this?” on a daily basis. #AfricanTwitter is full of jokes, embarrassment, and clapbacks (just ask NyaLee), so beware. This land is not for the weak and will have your timeline brimming with gossip, subtweets, hilarious beefs, and awkward forays into DMs, often exposed on the timeline. Dubbed as #AfricanTwitter, here are a few people that you should be following to get a glimpse into the experiences of Africans Diasporawide…

First and foremost, @SubDeliveryMan, he deserves some sort of award for consistently presenting some of the funniest tweets ever to land on the timeline. The purpose of this account is for people to send subliminal messages to their target, anonymously. Sounds simple right? This account is responsible for starting countless beef, leading people to delete their accounts, and even getting celebrities involved in scandals, definitely not part of #MindYourBusiness Twitter.

Highlights:

As soon as the “Leave My Boyfriend Alone” subliminal was fired, feelings were caught, beef started, screenshots exposed, and hilarity ensued.

“She gave me BJ after I bought her Fried Rice”. Self-Explanatory. Savage. Guy accuses a girl of…extracurricular activities, nudes were exposed, TL was lit.

After getting your dose of gist, turn to @Echecrates for hysterical yet down to earth commentary on regular life, sports, and Africa. You’ll agree with most everything he says, even though you may not want to admit it.

Next is @Dmv_Drummerboyy who pretty much makes jokes about everything with an impeccable use of gifs. He will have you hitting that RT button faster than you can even read the tweet itself. On a sidenote: he also had 3 separate graduation parties–for graduating from high school (wozz the meaning of all dis?). Highlights:

The constant pot stirrer, @odochukwuebuka, has on more than one occasion, left my timeline in a state of utter disarray. With a single tweet, #Africantwitter is ready to throw bombs to those who either agree or disagree with his statements. Mans can STYLE though. Highlights:

Another opinionated voice on the #AfricanTwitter Timeline is @Nigerianscamsss. As his name suggests, yes he is 419. He also happens to be an avid disbeliever of the Yoruba Demon myth and a member of OneTribeMag! Mr. 419’s tweets often cover the subjects of soccer, current events, soccer, politics, and  (you guessed it) soccer–all done in a very comical yet calm manner.

Presenting a perspective from the East side of Africa is @dopeethiopian, you may have already seen her on countless beauty IG and Twitter pages. She often tweets about current events and is quick to clapback. She will also never let you forget how Ethiopian she is and then follow it up with a selfie that is almost guaranteed to get thousands of retweets. Highlights:

A major key to African Twitter is African comedians. One in particular is the comedy prince himself, @Chief_Obi. No stranger to entertainment, Chief Obi delivers some of the most fire tweets and his own hilarious work. Highlights:

If you want realness, look no further than @Kingwole. His tweets usually are thought-provoking, offering insights on the experiences of Africans in the diaspora, music, politics, and things you didn’t even know that you cared about. Also seems to have a database of often long videos of things that went viral in the past and things that just came on TV 5minutes ago. Other tweets include ramblings about day to day life, just like the rest of us. Highlights:

If you’re looking for slayage, contours, and an abundance amount of “yasss” on your timeline, then head to @Jessnneceemodel of life. Another member of The Ladies Room, Jess’s tweets are comprised of politics, the problems of Nigeria, and how men can ruin your life. All of this while hitting you with an amazing photo of her doing modeling tingz that will make you block her from your boyfriend’s twitter. Highlights:

Of course, there are many more African Tweeters out there spilling tea and sharing cringeworthy tweets that might make our parents ship us back to Africa but in the meantime, enjoy these.
