Top Pet Tweeters Aren't Just For The Birds

Remembering Ella Fitzgerald classic tune "Let's Do It," back in the 50s, an updated version of that song might in today's Internet world focus how the various species on this planet are just as attracted to "Twitter" as they are to "falling in love." Based on the number of pets that have taken to tweeting out 140 characters or less, it can definitely be said that Twitter is an all-inclusive ecosystem.

And while the Twitter logo is a bluebird, it's become clear that Twitter is not just for the birds, nor Homo Sapiens for that matter. Here is a list of some of the top pet tweeters in the world, categorized in order of the number of followers they've been able to attract.
1,442,120 Followers: @Socksamillion could be considered the "Ashton Kutcher" of the pet world. Truly a rags-to-riches story, "Socks (aka Sockington) was first spotted homeless on the streets of Boston meowing for

For those that think the 'pet rescue' efforts in the US are limited only to dogs and cats, Critter Camp is here to show you that all the pet species on this planet deserve to be rescued as well.

So, as you can see, the Twitterverse could also be considered the Critterverse - as there are lots of opportunities for your pets to use the microblogging platform to communicate about their own special interests and needs, in addition to just being a place for them to post their daily musings.
And who knows, someday, perhaps Ella's prophetic lyrics might even lead to others species to join in, where  "bees (will be) doing it / even educated fleas (will be found) doing it (and if) Cold Cape Cod clams, 'gainst their wish, (might) do it, (perhaps) even lazy jellyfish could (eventually) do it."
Now, I would like to hear from our readers to find out what pets I may have missed in my TOP PET TWEETER listing? When you comment, please note the URL so all of our readers can enjoy communicating with your pets - and perhaps following them as well.
