- As a person who avoided Twitter for years, I’m actually really enjoying my foray into tweeting every thought that pops into my head – even if I have to sacrifice grammar and spelling to fit the 140 character requirement. (Psst, are you following S&P on twitter? No? Do it now!) There’s a lot of talk about the critical role Twitter plays in politics and journalism, some of which is good and some of which is bad. One thing I do know is that Twitter can do more harm than good when everyone on your twitter feed is making jokes about our country’s future as a nuclear wasteland. But I also know we’re all quite addicted to social media and that it genuinely serves as a good forum to discuss & vent. So, for all our sakes’, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite soothing twitter accounts! Follow these 5 and let them be the tiny little oasis in a stream of anxiety-inducing terror.
1. Cat In The Sink?
2. Tiny Neighbor
4. Emoji Aquarium & Emoji Meadow
5. Chelsea Manning
This one needs a little more explanation than the others (which are all quite self-explanatory, right? Cats! Cute little houses! Emoji bots!). Chelsea Manning doesn’t not tweet about the same political issues that saturate our feeds, but she does it in such a way (see: with lots of emojis) that you feel instantly comforted.
