Cat Twitter: All the Scoop on Cats in the Twitterverse
Whatever the future holds for the popular social media platform, one thing is certain…Twitter will always be a big digital playground for the feline community.
Littered with fun, fuzzy moments of cats living their best (1 through 9) lives and whimsical pics of our cats being weirdos is what Cat Twitter is all about.
While Human Twitter can occasionally get tangled up in controversy, Cat Twitter offers a carefree escape from all that — with a fascinating cast of characters (several top feline influencers boast hundreds of thousands of followers), plus a nonstop flow of rascals and cuties involved in OMG-worthy shenanigans, high jinks, and tomfoolery.
For example, the Huffington Post posts an ongoing roundup of “The Funniest Tweets About Cats and Dogs This Week.”
FELINE INFLUENCERS ON TWITTER
The conversation about four-legged, feline influencers on Twitter starts with a shout-out (meow-out?) to the legendary Grumpy Cat (@RealGrumpyCat), who padded onto the platform in 2012 and set the standard for purring personalities online.
Though Grumpy Cat wrapped up her ninth and final life in 2019, she lives on in the hearts of Twitter users, still boasting over 1.5 million followers. Her online fame made her into a mini-industry and even a movie star (voiced by Aubrey Plaza in the made-for-TV comedy “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever”).
Other top feline influencers on Twitter include:
Lil Bub (@IAMLILBUB; 828k followers) — According to her profile, “Lil BUB is a one-of-a-kind space cat. Since landing on Earth, she’s raised over $500,000 for homeless pets, and changed thousands of lives for the better.” She is also the subject of a pretend documentary.
