Social Media is Not Dead. It’s Run by Cats.

Written on July 2, 2009 – 9:43 pm | by Brian's Cat |

Humans think they’re such hot stuff.  Them and their opposable thumbs.  I’ll have you know that us felines are really the strength behind Twitter.  Don’t believe me? Apparently the San Diego News Network does:

That’s right folks.  PETCO pays Natalie Davis, Director of E-commerce to talk to pets.  We even convinced her to get her cat Leo to start getting up and running on Twitter.

We cats are better equipped than you humans for taking over the social media sphere anyway.  Here’s just a few signs of our prowess:

  1. The expression is LOLCats.  Ever see a LOLhuman? Pssh.
  2. Cats sleep 18 hours a day, so we’re better rested.  Besides, humans are always too busy “working” to mess with Twitter as we cat professionals are.
  3. We outrank you.  @Sockington has 3/4 of a million users following him on Twitter.  Ashton Kutcher and CNN are clearly fronts for the feline empire.
  4. Twitter is a bird.  Cats catch birds.  We’ve caught you.

    Leo is working towards getting out to twitter to tweet with you! He has a jam packed schedule with laying in the sun, eating, sleeping and a little play time here and there! I’m sure you can understand and appreciate that!

    True, social networks are not social until we’ll be able to get our beloved pets in there! I’ll start teach my dog to use twitter:))

    The pet industry is very large and it doesn’t surprise me that people have accounts open for their pets.

    Twittkitteh didn’t eat the tweet. She simply buried it right next to the other million tweets.
