15 Show Runners Worth Following on Twitter

TV Showrunners on Twitter

No one really understands show runners except other show runners, and one of the few windows into their world is Twitter.

Their short bursts of electric thought are among the only ways people outside their job get to see their creative processes, frustrations, and thoughts on each other's shows. It's no surprise many of the best show runners can't spare the time for Twitter. But for those that do, it's a way to vent and interact with fans -- and each other.

Take this recent exchange between "Community" creator Dan Harmon and “Modern Family” co-show runner Steve Levitan, in which a compliment leads to the airing of an old grievance and a quick online détente:

Levitan to Harmon:I thought tonight's “Community” was amazing. Congrats to all involved.

Harmon to Levitan: Thank you, sir. We love your show and when I get drunk I get mad at you for saying you "even admire elements" of ours.

Levitan to Harmon: Yeah, I don't blame you - didn't come out the way I intended at all. A sincere compliment gone wrong. Haven't missed many eps.

So here we go, 15 show runners worth following
