Out of all of the social media platforms, Twitter is perhaps the one that gets pointed out the most for its toxicity. While most people post their real name and picture on Facebook (another battleground for opposing opinions), Twitter allows you to be completely anonymous. Because of the constant fighting on Twitter, it can be a bit grating on your mental health. If you love Twitter but want to get away from the bickering and check out something positive on the site, you’re in luck. Here are five positive Twitter personalities that are sure to brighten your day and make you forget how hectic life can be.
5. WholesomeMemes (@wholesomememe)
Back in August 2016, a man named Chris started up a Twitter account focusing on the most wholesome memes that the internet was churning out. Since then, the account has exploded in popularity with people wanting a quick smile, amassing nearly 3 million followers thanks to an endless stream of content that gets posted pretty much hourly. From birds hopping around in sweaters to original cartoons, Wholesomememes has a little something for everyone that needs some brightness.
4. Maria Popova (@brainpicker)
Bulgarian born Maria Popova started a blog back in 2006 that quickly became popular called Brain Pickings, and the following year joined Twitter. Now with nearly 1 million followers, Popova has been finding some of the most interesting tidbits, many of which are surrounded in the positivity of human nature. Popova has been very active in the years since starting her account and has also written several of her own pieces with interesting finds.
3. WeRateDogs (@dog_rates)
Do you absolutely love dogs and think they’re perfect no matter what? That’s what the people over at WeRateDogs think too. People from all over the world send photographs of their dogs to the account to get a rating, none of which are below 10 out of 10. There are also dogs that make the news that get an impromptu rating. It’s all for a good cause, too, as this account helps to support animal charities that include the Kentucky Humane Society and JustFoodForDogs to name a couple.
2. Preschool Gems (@PreschoolGems
Kids really do say the darndest things. That’s what Leslie McCollom of Portland, Oregon found out while being a teacher. McCollom takes some of the wildest things that young children have said in classrooms and makes quick quotes on Twitter such as “Why is an elephant?” or “Never forget: ‘Have a strang hart and be your salf.’” They’re very cute messages, and McCollom has even created a book that curates all of her favorite preschool-isms.
1. Earthpix (@EarthPix)
If you need to remind yourself that the Earth is a beautiful place filled with natural wonder, look no further than the EarthPix Twitter account. From the crystal clear waters off the shores of Italy to county fairs in the rural United States, EarthPix shows us the varying cultures of the world and the beauty in everyday life. There are now more than 3 million people following EarthPix, all of whom want to see this planet we share and the people who help to make humanity what it is today.
