Here's a hot tip before we even start: we probably have missed your favourite musician on Twitter. Please don't be mad at us! Just leave your suggestions in the comments section.

Some musicians on Twitter never Tweet. Some Tweet, but it's clearly run by the label's PR intern – or worse still, the social media manager. Some are so dull that you unfollow them faster than they can get their daily mantra out. But luckily, some musicians are fucking hilarious and/or weird and/or entertaining – and are kind enough to share that with their people.

So here is Lifelounge's guide to musicians to follow on Twitter.

?uestlove
Why for? He just never, ever stops and when he's funny, he can be really funny.
Tweet of note: "Random factoid: dude from extreme is rih's guitarist."


Jean Grae
Why for? Unstoppable, but she's hilarious and also loves grammar.
Tweet of note: "Wait... now that I think about it... I've gotten ZERO dates from Twitter. Son of a--"


Rihanna
Why for? Saucy photos of herself, song lyrics, random thoughts and all kinds of sass.
Tweet of note: "'@charmaine: May is National Masturbation Month' – more like 2012!"


Ezra Koenig
Why for? He likes late-night Twitter stream of conscious type rants.
Tweet of note: "Shoes on the couch...straight-up. Soles on the cushion. Not dangling off the side - direct contact. Pure and unabashed...barbarism."


Action Bronson
Why for? He's LOL and loves food.
Tweet of note: "U know whats not Gangsta? Being allergic to gluten."


Diplo
Why for? His kind of demented pimp persona.
Tweet of note: "RT if u have a penis"


Kanye West
Why for? Because when he goes HAM on Twitter, shit like Donda happens.
Tweet of note: "I hate big ass striped scarves." (That's just one of many Tweets included in his 'Shit I hate' rant.)


Riff Raff
Why for? All caps, all crazy.
Tweet of note: "FREESTYLE iN FRONT OF YOUR BOSS AT WORK... THEN DEMAND A RAiSE BECUZ U ARE DOiNG EXTRA WORK BY PROViDiNG FREESTYLE SKiLLS"


Kool Keith
Why for? He's basically sexually depraved – and is totally open about it.
Tweet of note: "For performance bookings, hostings, features or someone to fuck your moms and girl email koolkeithmusic@gmail.com"


Yoko Ono
Why for? Because.
Tweet of note: "Tape the sound of the lake gradually freezing. Drink a cup of hot chocolate, afterwards."
