There’s a lot of stuff on social media that can be a huge bummer. Fortunately, the animal kingdom has provided some inspiration for social media that is not a bummer. Here are 10 animal-themed Twitter accounts that will provide a pleasant break from the usual stuff in your feed (and generally not ruin your day).
Not a Wolf
Tweets not written by a wolf pretending to be a human man, and also not written by comedian and writer Dan Sheehan.
MANY PEOPLE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT BEING TOO LANDLOCKED TO RETIRE TO THE SEA AND BUDDY JUST WAIT TILL YOU HEAR ABOUT THE FOREST
ITS NATURES OCEAN

Thoughts of Dog
If you love or have loved 1) a dog or 2) pretty much all dogs, or if you believe the world would be a better place if we all thought and acted more like dogs, this account will make your day on a regular basis.

I’m telling you about a Twitter account that is called 100% Goats and I don’t think you should need any more information about it.

Just a Bear
Ruminations on the daily life of a bear, from a bear.
Good things about being a bear:
-Nobody can tell you that you are not a bear
-And if someone does say you are not a bear you can ignore them
-Or you could prove them wrong by being the bear that you know you are
-Because if you are a bear, you are a bear
-Pretty much free walnuts

Barely English, but understandable because it’s written by a bird who fights anti-bird sentiment, and is running for president.
why there not a mug that say “Best mom #1 at regurgitatin dead worm”

Simply: snarky and usually profane quips paired with exquisite drawings of birds. If you like F-words, you will like this. If you don’t, you won’t.

In Otter News
You pay too much attention to political news and not enough attention to what otters are up to. Fix that here.

WeRateDogs has more than 7 million followers, based on its witty ratings of dog photos sent by followers. Spoiler: Not a hell of a lot of dogs get ratings below 10/10

Pepe the King Prawn
Of all the Muppet characters (who are pretty funny and/or cute in the flesh, er, felt), only Pepe the King Prawn is actually funny on Twitter, okay?
#PrawnProTips – If you and your date can’t figure out where to eat a fancy meal, remember to compromise… and to never eat anywhere with a drive-thru, okay.

To be honest: Photos of dogs that kind of don’t make sense with tweet captions that sort of make sense (but are usually funny).
If ball only to be thrown again, why fetch? DO a work for work sake, not rob of purpose? when a labor not have need, perhap best 2 not need a labor. pic.twitter.com/ZkooDfkIcR
