Samira Wiley for Must Follow Monday

Every Monday ANDPOP brings you a new hilarious personality to follow on Twitter. Because we care, we’ll be assembling some of their greatest tweets to date to reel you in  and convince you to push that follow button. We aren’t forcing you to follow these people; we’re just STRONGLY SUGGESTING for your own personal enjoyment.  Today, we STRONGLY ADVISE you to follow Samira Wiley at @samirawiley

On Orange is the New Black, Samira Wiley is sassy, intelligent and fierce as Litchfield inmate Poussey. And in reality, Wiley is pretty much the same except she’s a lot less of a convict and a lot more glamorous!

Wiley is an incredibly talented actress and singer, so it’s no wonder why she has garnered the fan base she has through her emotional yet hilarious role on the hit Netflix show. The Juilliard-trained actress may have found success early, but she is refreshingly humbled by it. This is extremely evident in her activity on social media.

Wiley’s Twitter is minimal promotion, and maximum fan interactions. She tweets exceptional fan art, always responds to her fans’ questions and compliments, and never fails to post behind-the-scenes cast pictures for her followers to enjoy. She is at one with her fans and is incredibly modest about her talent and accomplishments.  In fact, she even worked her butt off to fake fluency in the German language for one episode.

Wiley keeps it real, tells it like it is and is a consistent breath of fresh air on Twitter. For Wiley, Twitter is all about connecting with her fans and sharing what she is up to.

She’s living the life

She’s a theater gal

She loves her fans

Literal spirit animal

The way she supports her co-stars


She shares the best pics

Seriously though, her love for her fans

Her photo shoots are perfection

Just this. All of this. We need this duet right now.
