Here are a few of my favorites, including the one I watched unfold this weekend between comic Kyle Kinane and Pace Salsa. (Yeah, you read that right).

#1: Kanye West vs. Jimmy Kimmel

I love Kanye West. I just do. His appearance on Kimmel's show after this all went down was even more epic. But my favorite of Kanye's tirade against Jimmy was probably this one, mostly because it resulted in props for Jimmy's ex: "SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!"

#2: Kourtney vs. Teen Mom

Sometimes I love the Kardashians, too. Honest. Farrah Abraham ("Teen Mom") wrote "Im Shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again, Did she not learn anything from TEEN MOM?" Kourtney wrote back: "Why would I have anything to do with Teen Mom? I'm 32 years old."

#3: Marc Maron vs. Michael Ian Black

It got testy. Maron tweeted: "I guess if everything is garbage principles are stupid" and Black responded, "So you watched your show, huh? :("

#4: Jenny Johnson vs. Chris Brown

Johnson had been retweeting Brown and giving him hell for years, but this battle actually caused him to delete his account.

#5: Sarah Palin vs. Piers Morgan

It mostly came down to Palin declining invites to be on Piers show over and over again. At one point Morgan wrote: "Being called ‘shambolic’ by @SarahPalinUSA is most amusing. I wonder if she can see irony from her house?"

#6: Olivia Wilde vs. Justin Bieber

The actress tweeted at the singer: "Bieber, put your f**king shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt)."

#7: Kendall Jenner vs. Rihanna

I barely know who Kendall Jenner is but this did make me laugh for some sadistic reason on my part. Jenner tweeted: “If Rihanna doesn’t perform Complicated tomorrow I’m gunna be very upset #FavSong!" Rihanna replied: "Well don’t come."

#8: Miley Cyrus vs. Justin Gaston

Ah, the masters of the subtweet. Gaston wrote, "People mistake stupidity for bravery way too easily." Cyrus responded: "Yeah. I love when people mistake bravery with writing a few stupid tweets trying to make it seem like they don't care. You're afraid to love."

#9: Lindsay Lohan vs. Dr. Phil

This kind of made me love Lindsay Lohan a lot, actually. When Dr. Phil expressed concern for her in a TV interview, Lindsay tweeted: "I thought REAL doctors talk to patients in offices behind closed doors. Am I wrong? Hmmmmm. I think NOT! Yay!"

#10: Kyle Kinane vs. Pace Salsa

Stop what you are doing and read this battle. The comic actually led to one of the most epic meltdowns of a corporate Twitter account of all time.

Do you have a favorite? Do you want to Twitter war with me? Do I need a life? I think I kind of do.
