The Followables: 10 Characters from Mad Men


The world of Twitter can be hard to navigate. We know that you’re already following us @flavorpill , but we decided it would be fun (and possibly helpful) if we rounded up some of our other Twitter favorites in a series we call “The Followables.” This ninth installment of Twitter all-stars spotlights characters from the hit AMC series Mad Men. Look for the tweets to pick up when season four starts in July.


Who: A partner in the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Ad Agency

Why: When we last saw him, Don’s marriage was ending just as his professional life was being reborn. Any insight into this man of mystery during a time of such seismic change should be cherished.


Who: A partner in the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Ad Agency and pursuer of the finer things in life

Why: Behind all of the wisecracking, we discovered a man who really cared what Don thought about him. Now that they’ve finally reconciled, we recommend a storyline involving office-related infidelity with Joan!


Who: A partner at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Ad Agency

Why: He showed a different, fiercer side in the season three finale — threatening to lock Harry in the storeroom and telling Roger what he really thought of his marriage to Jane (“You sold your birthright because you wanted to marry that trollop.”). We’re guessing that there’s more where that came from.


Who: Don’s (now ex?) wife, mother of three, and suburban dweller

Why: Because she’s finally struck out on her own! Sort of. Henry promised Betty that he’d take care of her financially when they were visiting the divorce lawyer. We’ve been wondering ever since if trusting him was a mistake.


Who: Daughter of Don and Betty Draper

Why: Last we saw Sally, she was calling Don — who had just broken the divorce to the kids — a liar. We wonder how she is going to feel about good old Uncle Henry…


Who: Don and Betty Draper’s newborn

Why: We’re betting this Baby Boomer is going to smoke a lot of pot while listening to Led Zeppelin in the ’70s. In the meantime, come on, he’s a tweeting baby possessed by the ghost of Grandpa Gene!


Who: Copywriter at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce

Why: There will be no more fetching coffee for anyone, got that Roger? Witness the birth of modern Feminism tweet by tweet — along with the blossoming of the career of an ad woman who really gets consumers.


Who: Redheaded bombshell and Office Manager at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce

Why: Because she has finally returned from exile! Long live Joanie!


Who: Copywriter at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce

Why: He’s our pseudo intellectual window into the counterculture, and probably feeling a little lonely in his new office without Ken Cosgrove.


Who: Carla, the Draper’s housekeeper

Why: She’s always been one of the only reasonable people on this show (not to mention, one of the only characters of color). Plus, we’re wondering where she lands in the divorce fallout.
