In case you still don’t know him, Ronan Farrow is the son of actress Mia Farrow and director Woody Allen — or possibly Frank Sinatra. In fact, it was his mom’s suggestion that Sinatra might be his father — and the hilarious response Ronan tweeted — that caused the public to sit up straight and pay attention. He even made it onto our 25 Crushable Guys Under 25 list last Fall. At only 26, Ronan has already accomplished more than a lot of people do in their entire lives. For instance, he finished college at age 15 and then went on to graduate from Yale Law School. Beginning today at 1 PM ET, Ronan will host his own MSNBC program called Ronan Farrow Daily.
In addition to his impressive accomplishments and political knowledge, Ronan’s Twitter account has captivated over 200,000 followers. Whether you’re interested in politics, pop culture or both, you’ll find something to enjoy in his Twitter feed. So in honor of his new show, we’ve put together a collection of Ronan’s best tweets. Read, laugh, feel inferior. By the way, this doesn’t even scratch the surface, so be sure to spend the rest of day scrolling through his thoughts.
Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son.

Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall? — Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) January 13, 2014
Oh, you thought the retweets for the Sinatra comment was impressive? Just look at the number for this one, which Ronan tweeted during the Golden Globes last month. He’s since remained supportive of his sister Dylan, who maintains that Woody Allen molested her.

One of the best things about Ronan’s tweets is that he’s totally open to joking about his unusual family situation.
