The Absolute Best Photos of Doggos Thanks To 'We Rate Dogs' Twitter Profile

by Elana

Sometime in early 2014, Matt Nelson joined the social media phenomenon known as Twitter and he had absolutely no clue what was in store for his future. Reflecting on how it all began, he posted on his website:

... I wrote jokes, or did my best I should say. There's only a handful I'm truly proud of, but this process of molding your words to convey your embarrassingly quirky thought or idea in a way that generates your intended response and doing so in less than 140 characters is an unmatched thrill for me. I can only compare it to when you're cutting wrapping paper and your scissors start to glide. Even the simplest captions on WeRateDogs probably took me like 10-15 minutes of absolute focus. After spending 2 years making jokes on Twitter, I realized that if your tweet contained a certain four-legged friend, it would get more popular than it probably should. I did whatever it took to include dogs in my tweets. Then, one day, at an Applebee's in Fuquay-Varina, NC, I asked my friend Morgan how his quesadilla burger was. "10/10" was his response. "What if I made an account that rates dogs?" was mine.

And after the 20-year-old Campbell University student had spent two years "pouring" his heart into his personal Twitter, his new account took only 5 days to pass his original account follower count. Today, WeRateDogs entertains hundreds of thousands of dog lovers all over the world and they do a darn heckin' good job at it! It's taken just under two years to amass more than 2 million followers and with a small team of three people total, WeRateDogs makes us laugh and cry tears of joy with their witty responses to user-submitted photos of man's best friend and truthfully, we cannot get enough. Have a look for yourself at some of the absolute best the witty Twitter page has to offer us!
