13 Animals With Twitter Accounts Worth Following

To the amusement of some and eye-rolling of others, animals and social media are a match made in puppy love heaven, with star pooches, rabbits, cats, and the like often racking up more followers and buzz than their human counterparts.

To wit: this infographic created by Peter Brown on behalf of Edgemere equestrian supplies shop, which takes a look at animals’ domination of social networks and why it’s happening.

Maybe there’s something we can actually learn from social media-active animals: keep your tweets short, to-the-point, and adorable.
