If Animals Could Tweet is a series I began about the time our Tweeter-in-Chief was coming to political prominence. It occurred to me that although animals have many people who advocate for them, they cannot speak for themselves, certainly not in the political realm. Which led to the question, if animals had the same platform, could they be as effective at swaying public opinion on their own behalf? If animals could tweet, what would they say? It would probably be far more direct than what Ive imagined!
With this series the personal and political have come together. As a vegan, the ethical treatment of animals is something I deeply support. My aim is to nudge people to see things from the animals point of view, to take off their blinders, to become conscious of the realities of the choices they make every day.
