Twitter is awesome: It’s a direct line to everything exciting and interesting that’s happening on the Internet—a huge portion of which is totally adorable. (Do you follow us @WorkmanPub?) This week we’re highlighting some of our favorite cute friends who tweet. (Also cute: the Twitter bird!)
It’s only August, but copies of our 2013 calendars are already rolling in! (You might not be surprised to learn that we’re never really sure exactly what year it is around here.) As a preview of the coming year, we’re pleased to present you with this picture of the 2013 Pocket Pigs calendar, featuring some of the teacup pigs of @PennywellFarm themselves! We just want to put them in our pockets and let them wee, wee, wee all the way home!!
- Speaking of cute calendars, did you know there’s not one but two Cute Overload calendars?! Stock up, people, 2013 is only 5 months away… And follow @CuteOverload to stay up-to-date with the latest adorable animals on the web.
- One of our favorite Twitter Feeds ever is @PreschoolGems, where preschool teacher Leslie McCollom collects the brilliantly hilarious things her students says (“gems”) and tweets them out for all to enjoy. A recent tweet: “When I’m a Mommy, I’m going to have a girl, a girl, a boy, and name them Peanut, Yogurt and Santa.” Too cute to handle? Just wait until you see the book, released yesterday by Penguin. And be sure to read the author’s blog post about the story behind Preschool Gems. “First I wasn’t a mermaid, then my dream came true!” Indeed.
- In a similar vein, check out @TextsFromDidi! Sarah tweets actual texts from her 9-year-old sister who lives across the country. A choice example: “Mama got me a sugar free pie and this is the worst birthday ever.” Also: ”OMG!!!! i just got a 38 inch pinata!!!!” Kids text the darnedest things.
Look at this tiny gorilla getting a check-up!!! The stethoscope is sooooooo cooooold!!! (via Wild for Wildlife and Nature)
