TV Stars Everyone Should Follow in 2014

On the Internet, as in life, it's important to be yourself. Yet for many celebs, the concept of constructively using social media to build on and share their personalities seems to be a totally alien concept.

But there's a handful of TV stars who treat social-media sites as the interactive and engaging conversation platforms they can be. We're giving these ladies and gents the shoutout they deserve: By keeping things funny, authentic, and generally "getting it," they've earned your follow in the new year.

Norman Reedus
The only person cooler than Daryl Dixon is the guy who plays him.

Aaron Paul
"Breaking Bad" may be over, but our love for Jesse Pinkman will go on forever.

Rob Lowe
The "Parks and Rec" funnyman li-turally shares some of the cutest, coolest, and smartest posts on the Internet.

Neil Patrick Harris
In addition to singing, dancing, and acting, the "How I Met Your Mother" star (with some help from his adorable family) has also mastered social media.

Nathan Fillion
The "Castle" star is known for playing witty, quippy characters, and this translates over onto his Twitter. (His sporadic Instagram posts are also pretty good.)

Busy Philipps
Looking for cute fam pics, BTS candids, and selfies on selfies? "Cougar Town's" Busy is your gal.

Mindy Kaling
Um, because she's perfect. Who else would live-tweet their writers' room's Secret Santa?

The cast of "Pretty Little Liars"
They may raise hell in Rosewood, but online, the "Liars" gals are as funny as they are gorgeous.

Troian Bellisario 

Ashley Benson

Shay Mitchell

Lucy Hale

Cam and Mitchell
The entire "Modern Family" cast is pretty adroit with social media, but this on-screen couple takes the cute post/photo cake. (Also, they tweet each other like this. Awww, much?)

Eric Stonestreet

Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Colton Haynes
Sexy smolder or bewildered selfie? Answering fan questions or waxing poetic on the state of culture? You never know what you're gonna get when this "Teen Wolf" alum posts, but it'll always be worth a look.

Gillian Jacobs
The "Community" comedienne's eclectic posts (high fashion meets bizarro Photoshop) tickle us in all the right places.

Darren Criss
The "Glee" star is cute as a button and humble to boot; what's not to love?

Ian Somerhalder
Let's be real: Your timelines/feeds can only be improved by this "Vampire Diaries" star's frequent selfies.

Zooey Deschanel
Deschanel's generally a down-to-earth poster, but everything's still infused with the "New Girl" star's signature quirkiness.

Follow her on Tumblr here.

Jimmy Fallon
The man behind pretty much every actually-funny late night skit naturally has a helluva social media presence. Also: baby pics!

Follow the official "Late Night" Tumblr here.

Chris Pratt
We admit, the "Parks and Rec" goofball got on our Instagram radar because of this pic, but he posts plenty of sage advice — and, of course, selfies.

Michael Ian Black
Inappropriate? Often. Hilarious? Always.

Dylan Sprouse
Okay, we weren't just following one of the "Suite Life" twin's accounts; he caught our attention with a bit of fanfare, but kept it with his hilariously self-effacing posts.

The cast of "Scandal"
You should already be following Kerry Washington, but for a really fun time, follow the rest of the "Scandal" cast and get lost in their endless Twitter teasing/#gladiator shenanigans.

Tony Goldwyn

Columbus Short

Bellamy Young

Joshua Malina

Guillermo Diaz

Katie Lowes

Darby Stanchfield

Dan Bucatinsky

Jeff Perry

Stephen Amell
Look past those "Arrow" abs and you'll find one of the most understatedly hilarious tweeters on the Internet.

Patton Oswalt
Part snark, part culture commentary, all worth following.

Zach Braff
If J.D. from "Scrubs" had a Twitter, it'd be like Braff's... wait a second...

Aziz Ansari
The "Parks and Rec" star is an actual human puppy, and the world is better off for it.

Follow him on Tumblr here.

Orlando Jones
This "Sleepy Hollow" co-star's adoration of fandom culture (which is wholeheartedly reciprocated) is the stuff of legends. Also, he posts stuff like this. Just, round of applause.

Another "Parks and Rec" social-media whiz, she live-tweets everything and posts pictures that'd be a parody of #TreatYoSelf if, y'know, she weren't actually living that life. Stay fabulous, Retta, and thanks for letting us live vicariously through you.
