(Newser) – Not every celebrity uses Twitter to call people ugly or get in ridiculous fights with other celebrities. The Week rounds up 10 stars you might actually want to follow on Twitter:

  • Patton Oswalt: He recently spent a day shamelessly trolling Twitter by tweeting admirable (or at least harmless) thoughts ... but splitting them up into two tweets so that the second one sounded awful, like so: "For you simpletons who see everything in 'black' and 'white': if racism, misogyny, hatred and fear are BLACK, then" ... "My grandchildren had better be WHITE. And I mean PURE WHITE, or we're not going to have a country anymore. #tolerance."
  • David Lynch: Yeah, his Twitter feed is just about as Lynchian as you'd expect. "Dear Twitter Friends, I am building a box with wallpaper & a nude woman. What are you doing this weekend?" Or how about, "Dear Twitter Friends, I bought a 1940’s toy telephone and this weekend I’m going to be making some calls. What are you up to this weekend?"

  • Aaron Paul: The Breaking Bad star will say "bitch" for you if you want him to. For example: "Happy Breaking Bad day bitches! What's your number? Calling the first 10 people to answer questions. Ask me anything. #yeahbitch." And then he really did call them—did we mention he's also a nice guy?
  • Conan O'Brien: If you like his show, you'll like his Twitter feed. One short, (bitter)sweet example: "Just bought Detroit on Etsy."
  • Alyssa Milano: She actually offers up some interesting links, from common grammar mistakes to "a scientific explanation of twerking."
