I told you a few days ago that I was following The First Dogs on Twitter, which I thought was some sort of official account set up for Champ and Major. I should have known that the people in the White House had better things to do than to curate a Twitter account about the dogs. There is no ‘official” account for the dogs or for the coming First Cat at this time. Everything you see on Twitter currently (and there are several accounts) are fan pages.
It does appear that @FLOTUS will ocassionally tweet about the dogs.
There’s not a blue check of authenticity yet, but I believe the place to go for tweets from Champ and Major Biden is @TheFirstDogs. Rumor has it they are not at the White House yet; they’re waiting for everything to calm down a bit.
There’s also an account for @TheFirstCatUS, for the promised rescue cat.
Can’t wait to start seeing what’s on the minds of all the first pets. No word on who is helping them with the typing. It’s tough to tweet when you don’t have thumbs!
I’m kind of new to Twitter, having turned there for my social media after my Facebook account was irretrievably hacked, so I apologize if I’m telling you something you already know.
If you use Twitter, you need to check out The Feel Good Page (@akkitwts). Every day, there are videos of animals (and sometimes people) that will just make you feel better about the world. I don’t know how to embed tweeted videos here, so I’ll have to just post a link to my favorite one so far, captioned “work smarter, not harder.”
After you watch the video, be sure to follow the page.
If you’re a tweeter, you might already be familiar with the handle @DogRates, the page that has you submit pictures of your dog and the owner of the page rates your dog. Most get ratings of 13/10 (13 out of ten) or something similar because all dogs are good dogs.
Yes, I know the Top Ten list belongs on Tuesday, but I was out of town. So you don’t have to wait clear until next week, I’m bringing you a special Top Ten on Wednesday: Random Dog Tweets. (Not treats, tweets.) Continue reading Top Ten Random Dog Tweets→
