35 Cats to Follow on Twitter in 2022

The one thing 2021 has made abundantly clear is that social media is bad, bad, bad for us. But also most of us need to be on social media — for work, for friendship connections, for romantic pursuits, and also because otherwise our families are gonna be calling us ON THE PHONE to make sure we’re alive. We don’t need to add the stress of TALKING on the PHONE to this already very stressful world we’re living in. So what can you do? Well, I’ll tell you what I did and it was one of the best things I did all year: You can follow a bunch of cats on Twitter. They speak their own language, these cats; they all have their own personalities; they talk to each other, and they’ll talk to you too. Cat Twitter is the best Twitter and, in my opinion, it’s the smartest thing you can do to keep social media from making you want to hurl yourself into the sea.
