75 Best Twitter Accounts For TV Fans to Follow

To get ready for the 2015 TV season, we've come up with the essential Twitter follows for TV fans.

Twitter’s impact on television has been profound in the last few years.

Actors are encouraged to live-tweet while their shows are airing, networks have PR accounts, show accounts, writers’ room accounts and there are enough parody accounts to make you question what is and isn’t real in the social media sphere. The reality is: Twitter is becoming big business for TV. Studies have shown that flurries of tweets and trending hashtags can at times help boost live ratings and Forbes used its cover to question whether Twitter can save live TV or vice-versa.

Before the almighty dollar wins out and Twitter is oversaturated with ads, we want to recognize what makes the social network our favorite TV-watching companion. The people! The funny people, the creative people, the informative people, the superheroes, the bad guys, the troublemakers, the overly opinionated, and all the rest of the golden gods of TV Twitter. The shows don’t end when the credits roll anymore and geeks like us can thank the internet for keeping us busy. 

Using an admittedly unscientific format by polling our reviewers and picking our favorites, we put together the 75 best Twitter accounts for TV fans to follow. That means we left a ton of great Tweeters out in the cold, and for that we are sorry. Please point those people out in our comments section.

This list was curated by Chris LongoMike Cecchini, Daniel Kurland and includes submissions from Den of Geek contributors John Saavedra, Megan Crouse, Nick Harley, Alec Bojalad and Bridget LaMonica. The accounts are not ranked or in any particular order because that would be exhausting and unfair, so we broke it up by sections: Talent, Resources, Network and Other. 

And now here are your 75 Best TV Twitter accounts…
