The best social media accounts are the most genuine displays of a character, whether that be someone we can easily imagine being BFFs with or someone whose artistic dedication leaves us in awe.
Here are 10 musicians who, in some form, stand out from the rest of the pack.
John O’Callaghan — The Maine
The talented frontman of the Maine’s Twitter account gives a look into what’s happening inside his brain. The thought-provoking blurbs not only detail someone who is engulfed in emotional internal conflict, but also has a genuine outlook on the human condition.
Don't you dare love just to be loved in return.

You deserve to feel good. And beautiful, and loved, and wanted, and young, and respected, and wild, and complex, and adored, and so on.

Matty Healy — The 1975
If you’re a fan of the 1975, you are truly in for a rollercoaster of emotions trying to decipher what Matt Healy is posting about at any given moment. The beginning of the I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It album cycle had fans thinking the band were breaking up. In the end, it turned out to be a giant story of how the group’s style was changing. That same mantra lives to this day when it comes to Healy’s master of mysterious approach on social media, and it will probably be that way forever.

Brendan Murphy — Counterparts
Unconditionally being yourself and holding nothing back is a trait to admire. Murphy’s brand of humor fits the demographic of Counterparts, and the comedy god has mastered making you both laugh and cry.
If I wanted 2 see
a bunch of sweaty people
in a hurry
I'd just go to warped tour
and open my eyes

Oliver Baxxter — Broadside
Vocalist Ollie Baxxter prides himself on being a writer and seems to carefully choose what pictures and text get placed in the eyes of fans. The artist has put out collections of poetry—the most recent in the form of On Loving Someone.
Tyler Joseph — Twenty One Pilots
Twenty One Pilots attempt to encourage people to look at their surroundings in an unimaginable sense. The Blurryface cycle saw Tyler Joseph donning black paint and red clothing to represent a character within himself. To signal the end of the era, a simple picture was posted showing the paint being washed off.
