Hey! You! Add Thrillist on Snapchat! Our handle is THRILLIST. (Duh.) Happy snapping!

As much as we love Snapchat, it doesn't exactly make it easy to find new people to follow -- especially if you're looking for homegrown talent and wacky creatives instead of already-famous celebrities. In fact, it's pretty damn hard. To keep your feed 100-emoji, we've put together this handy list of the best non-celeb Snapchatters putting out hilarious stories, impressive illustrations, and behind-the-scenes content that you're gonna want to get in on. (We'll be updating this list periodically, so if you follow a Snapper who belongs on it, let us know in the comments or on Twitter!)
