9 Mindy Kaling Tweets That You Can Definitely Relate To

Today Mindy Kaling celebrates her 35th birthday! In honor of the occasion, I’ve decided to round up the best things she’s typed on Twitter. Sure, she’s a successful writer for TV shows (The Mindy Project and The Office, of course), but she’s equally clever online. Her Twitter feed is as quotable as her New York Times best-selling book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) and it's because of her way with words that I'm already counting down until Kaling's next book, Why Not Me, hits shelves.

Whether live tweeting episodes of her show or posting photos from the red carpet, Kaling makes the most of 140 characters. She’s not afraid to share what’s on her mind or fangirl over famous people like the rest of us — even though it's pretty different, since she’s a celeb herself. Plus, she’s not too cool to comment on her insecurities or confess embarrassing moments. Kaling's relatable, witty, and straight up hilarious.

Even though it was difficult to narrow down, here are nine examples of times she proved she's the perfect Twitter spirit animal.

Looks like Taylor Swift is not the only one with an Olivia Benson obsession. Can there please be an SVU/Mindy Project crossover episode?

She's adventurous and willing to try new roles.

Her friendship with former co-star B.J. Novak is perfect.

Drinking coconut water can be pretty pretentious.

Very good point. Why must they always ask that?

She shares our struggles. This one's directed at you, YouTube.

I'm thinking this could easily be another essay topic for her new book.

How could you not fan girl over Lupita Nyong'o?

And her math skills are on point.

Happy birthday, Mindy! Keep the great tweets coming!
