If you're on Twitter, you've probably come across at least one Hulk parody account. If you're not, they are what they sound like -- accounts that tweet in Hulk-speak (think "Hulk smash!"). Some, like Drunk Hulk, have been among the Internet's most celebrated parody accounts for a while. Others, like Film Critic Hulk and Editor Hulk, have been guest writers at the New Yorker and done Q&A's, respectively.

The Hulk theme, an easily mimicked formula of capital letters and neanderthal-type speak, has led to an explosion of accounts parodying the Marvel comic icon (I counted around 150, and last year The Daily Dot reported that there are hundreds), and, like almost all parody accounts, most of them are not very good. In an effort to separate the genuinely amusing from the imitators, we present the top seven Hulk accounts actually worth following:
