Twitter often gets a reputation as a dumpster fire, and in fairness, it usually is. Not only can scrolling be an exercise in misery, but uh… what were those “fleets?” Glad that’s over.
I’m still on most social media platforms, including Twitter. My excuse is that I work in marketing and never want to be the person who has to ask what a retweet is.
But just because the site has a reputation for being a toxic hellscape, doesn’t mean it has to be. I’ve found curating who I follow and what I focus on makes the platform immensely more enjoyable. I sometimes wonder if that was the original intent of the app, but that’s a post for another time.
Anyways, the quickest way to add a bit of love to your Twitter timeline is to follow positive accounts. Below are my five favorite positive Twitter accounts that all deserve a follow. Let’s go!
1. Susie Dent
Words of the day are ‘unanimous’, united in agreement, from the Latin for ‘one mind’, and ‘unasinous’, united in stupidity, from the Latin for ‘one ass’.— Susie Dent 💙 (@susie_dent) October 26, 2021
2. Bodega Cats
Bodega Cats is literally just an account dedicated to posting cats in bodegas that users send in. Just the photo, nothing else. It’s the best thing ever.
You may ask, why would we need an account dedicated to bodega cat photos? To which I say, why not?
Give a man a MoonPie and he will thank you but teach a man to MoonPie and Clint from our legal team will take immediate action— MoonPie (@MoonPie) September 22, 2021
The MoonPie twitter account is, admittedly, a guilty pleasure. It does what many brands on Twitter only attempt to do, off-brand, bizarre humor that somehow sticks every time. The Linda saga in particular is a masterclass in world building. PopTarts, take note.
5. Bindi Irwin
Bubbles the kookaburra fell in a pool, sustaining mild soft tissue trauma and was treated by the expert vet team at our #AustraliaZoo Wildlife Hospital. Bubbles made a full recovery and was released back into the wild.💙— Bindi Irwin (@BindiIrwin) October 27, 2021

Thanks to this tweet, I now know how to spell kookaburra, which is a win of it’s own. Honestly, the whole Irwin family is worth a follow. You’ll get adorable updates from the Australia Zoo, animal fun facts and the cutest pictures of Bindi’s daughter Grace. It adds a bit of sunshine to your timeline.
Are there any funny, positive Twitter accounts that deserve a shoutout? Let me know in the comments!
