If you’re a geek and on Twitter, there’s a good chance you already follow some of the nerdiest celebrities out there. People like Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, Nathan Fillion, and Kevin Smith, who have built reputations out of their identities as geeks. But there are a lot of other celebrities out there that are proud of their geek selves, too.

These 10 geek celebrities on Twitter are a lot of fun to follow too. Check them out and share your own favorites in the comments below!

@TheVulcanSalute

If you’ve seen Blindspot, you know that Ashley Johnson plays a very nerdy character on the show — but you might not realize that she’s also a big geek in real life. She’s a regular on Critical Role, a show about tabletop role-playing games, where she and other actors play Dungeons & Dragons, and she’s appeared on Wil Wheaton’s Tabletop show as well.

She’s about as geeky as celebrities come, and she’s both funny and honest on her Twitter feed, something that you don’t find from a lot of celebrities. Whether you’re a D&D fan, a Blindspot fan, or just a fan of people who love being geeks, you should definitely give her a follow.

@mindykaling

Mindy Kaling has become a pop culture icon over the past few years with her TV appearances, books, and online presence. Her self-deprecating humor and her willingness to be true to herself really shine through on her Twitter feed, which includes some fantastic musings, like this one:

If you really like Kaling’s sense of humor, it might be worth subscribing to Hulu Plus, which is the only place you catch The Mindy Project, the show she created. If you haven’t seen it, sign up for a free trial and check it out!

@hodgman

You might remember John Hodgman as the PC in Apple’s famous “I’m a PC” commercials, or you may be familiar with some of his books. Even if you’re not, you’ll enjoy his nerdy tweets and his infectious love of geeky things (he’s lately been tweeting excitedly about N.K. Jemisin’s The Obelisk Gate, one of the many books you should be reading in August 2016).

Hodgman is an unabashed geek, and his Twitter feed is full of things that will make you either laugh or think about something new. You can’t ask for much more than that.

@BRIANMBENDIS

Brian Michael Bendis is one of the more well-known comic book writers; he’s worked on Jessica Jones, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Daredevil, and many other popular characters (as well as quite a few books that didn’t don’t have the same circulation as these heavy hitters). His Twitter feed is filled with phenomenal comic book art, so if you like to see what comic artists can do, give him a follow.

Bendis is still working on a number of exciting projects, so if you want to keep up with the books he’s working on or that are coming out soon, following his Twitter account is a great way to get a heads-up on the comics you should be reading.

@Evy_Lynch

Evanna Lynch is best known for playing Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter movies and spin-off video games, but she’s also done some modeling and worked to promote healthy body image and self-esteem.

Her Twitter feed has a lot of nerdy Harry Potter references, she’s a Pokémon Go player, and she regularly tweets about animal rights and veganism. Whether you’re a meat-eater or not, you’ll appreciate her wit and earnest appreciation of fun, geeky things (and her cat).

@miraclelaurie

You might remember Miracle Laurie from Joss Whedon’s short-lived (but well-loved) show Dollhouse, where she played November. Much like Evanna Lynch’s feed, Laurie tweets a lot about positivity with a healthy dose of nerdery thrown in.

Anyone who spends Mother’s Day with their mom watching Captain America: Civil War has to be a huge geek, and she’s obviously proud of it. Guardians of the Galaxy, the new X-Files, Insane Jane, and a lot of baby animals also feature prominently.

@Janina

Janina Gavankar’s name might not sound familiar, but you’ve probably heard her as the voice of FERO in Halo 5: Guardians or seen her as Luna Garza on True Blood or McKenna Hall on Arrow. There’s no denying her geek credentials: a quick look through her Twitter feed shows tweets about No Man’s Sky, Star Trek, and Atari: Game Over.

Gavankar has also appeared on and hosted Attack of the Show! on G4 TV, and she voiced Amita in Far Cry 4. According to Wikipedia, she was the first actor to sign up for Twitter… but with Wikipedia’s sometimes-questionable accuracy, you’ll have to take that with a grain of salt.

@SamuelLJackson

Jackson is a prolific tweeter, so you’ll see a lot from him if you give him a follow — but you won’t be disappointed. He’s a funny guy, and he shares a lot of good stuff that both geeks and non-geeks will appreciate. He champions a number of good causes, which is always good to see from celebrities, too.

Jackson has been in a lot of geeky movies, from The Avengers to Unbreakable, and it’s no surprise that he’s a geek in real life, too. He’s even written a comic book!

@PatrickRothfuss

If you’re not familiar with Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicle books, you’re seriously missing out. It’s one of the best fantasy series being written right now. And as Rothfuss is a fantasy writer, you might expect that he’d be a pretty big geek — and you’d be right.

Like Ashley Johnson, Rothfuss is a tabletop RPG player, and he’s involved in the writing and creation of some games, as well. He’s about as geeky as they come, and his parenting tweets will resonated with other geek parents out there.

@shegeekshow

Kate Welch might not be a household name, but she has over 11,000 followers on Twitter, so that makes her a celebrity, right? I’m going to go with yes. Welch is a video game designer at Amazon Game Studios, and she’s definitely a geek.

Follow her on Twitter for dorky musings, tattoos, cool hair, corgis, and video games. You know what? Here’s another one, because I like it:

Maximum geek factor.
