Tig Notaro has officially joined Twitter – with the help of few (famous) friends.

Ahead of the premiere of her HBO comedy special Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted, Notaro made her Twitter debut on Monday. But rather than tweeting herself—she really has “no interest” in the social media platform, according to her bio—fellow comedian Sarah Silverman kicked off the new account for her.

Silverman updated the feed with photos of her dog and a few of herself and Notaro, along with the announcement that 29 other comedians would be taking over the account for the next month, with Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani picking up where Silverman left off.

Who will be next? Fans can follow Notaro here.

Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted premieres Saturday, Aug. 22 at 10 p.m. ET on HBO. For even more news on the comedian, check out EW’s interview with Notaro about her Netflix documentary,Tig, which premiered to the streaming service earlier this month.
