It's almost a new year, so it's time to add some new accounts to your Twitter timeline. But with more than 313 million users, you may feel overwhelmed by the options. There are meme accounts, politics profiles, parodies, celebrities and more.

Stay calm and load up TweetDeck — we've compiled 17 of the best Twitter accounts for you to follow in 2017.

@realDonaldTrump: United States President-elect has made a habit of taking to Twitter with his thoughts on everything from Robert Pattinson to Russia's involvement in the election.

@jonnysun: Jonathan Sun shares relatable, misspelled messages that will make you smile when you scroll past.

@emrgencykittens: Enough said.

@IAM_SHAKESPEARE: Willy Shakes, as the Bard has nicknamed himself on Twitter, is tweeting his plays line by line.

@neiltyson: Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson regularly gets sassy on social media, but he's allowed to — he has the facts to back it up.

@katyperry: Katy Perry has more than 94 million followers, so you should track her tweets just to stay hip.

@DiGiornoPizza: This is a brand account for pizza, yes. But the tweets are wide-ranging and eloquent and, at times, just plain hilarious.

@Pontifex: Whether you're religious or not, the fact that a 79-year-old from Argentina is on Twitter is pretty impressive.
