Though we’re used to following the Grey’s Anatomy cast members on Twitter to see behind-the-scenes pictures, spoilery comments, and live tweets during our favorite show, they recently their social media presence to a whole new level: tweeting in-character.
If you ever wondered how Richard would handle an iPhone, or how Cristina’s dry humor translates on the internet, you’re in luck. As of March 19, all of the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital docs are on Twitter — and the results are hilarious.
Some of the cast members are taking this very seriously, updating their characters’ feeds regularly (especially during episodes) and tweeting at other docs, while others are run by writers on the show. Either way, you can check out the full list of handles below — including a sample tweet from each person!
