    Comedian Tig Notaro Joins Twitter, Has Her Famous Friends Tweet For Her

    "I have no interest in Twitter. I can barely check my email. But I love you."

    If you're familiar with Tig Notaro, you know the comedian is having the best year of her professional life, following probably the worst years of her personal life.

    Only Notaro could turn personal experiences like the loss of her mother and a breast cancer diagnosis into life-changing comedy.

    This week, ahead of the premiere of her "Boyish Girl Interrupted" HBO special, Notaro finally joined Twitter:

    Hi friends, it’s @SarahKSilverman & I'm on @TigNotaro’s twitter b/c she doesn't want to be. Don't be dumb - watch her special on @HBO 8/22!

    But the comedian has made it clear right from the start, tweeting isn't really something she's interested in.

    So what’s a comedian with a brand new twitter who doesn’t really want one to do? Have your hilarious comedian friends tweet for you, of course:

    This makes my face smile… (face=anus)

    Sarah Silverman was first to lend a helping hand:

    It’s Tig’s first day on twitter and she’s already nailing it by letting me @SarahKSilverman tweet for her.

    As a welcome to twitter gift, I’m giving Tig all my jokes that don’t work.

    Tig and me. Texas. One of us wrote this in blood.

    She revealed that 29 other comedians would be taking control of the account, each for a full twenty-four hours.

    29 more loverly comedians will take over Tig’s feed for the next month, but just remember that I was her first.

    Next up? Kumail Nanjiani of Silicon Valley and Adventure Time:

    My lifelong dream has been to spend one day tweeting for Tig. I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself tomorrow. - @kumailn

    Notaro has some seriously funny friends, so the entire month of August looks like it's going to be a really good time.

    Yep, it's time to get on the Tig Twitter Train:

    We learned that Jeff Garlin, @kumailn, @MaryLynnRajskub, @ianharvie, @huntsbergerjunk & @aparnapkin will be up next.

    We can only hope that someday she will come around and bless us with her very own tweets.

    Seriously though, Tig. * Prayer Hands Emoji *
