Twitter has the ability to break news and offers us an insight in 140 characters or less into our most coveted celebrities.
It also has the chance to introduce us to some of the coolest cats around – we’re talking those on four legs.
Here are some of Twitter’s most famous cats.
Owned by Chanel fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, Choupette’s Twitter account shows the glamourous lifestyle this girl leads.
What we’ve learnt – she doesn’t like to eat from the floor, she’s firmly against tube tops making a come back (we’re assuming both human and feline alike) and of course, she travels in style.

Owned by actor, writer, award winning comedian and all-round animal loving Ricky Gervais, Ollie is as known on Ricky’s own Twitter account as she is becoming on her own.
What we’ve learnt – Ollie likes doing what Ollie likes doing. And who can blame her.
Here’s a typical day in the life of Ollie as filmed by Ricky:

Owned by Jason Scott, an internet historian, Sockington has over 1.3m followers on Twitter and his own Wikipedia page.

4. Simon’s Cat
