BREAKING NEWS: On the first day of 2017, our President-elect followed, then soon unfollowed, a popular Twitter account called Emergency Kittens.

He only follows 42 people, so this is MAJOR news (in the insane world we live in where Twitter follows are "news" and Donald Trump is "president").​

Emergency Kittens has 1.86 million followers, because in these dark times, everyone needs more kittens in their news feed. And for an internet-shattering few hours, one of those followers was Donald Trump. He followed the account on January 1st, prompting this tweet:

Some people blamed the Russians.

A few people made this joke, which Trump was basically asking for.

Emergency Kittens took matters into their own paws (sorry), and tried to reach out to the President-elect to test his cat-humor. But alas, it was too late.

A heartbroken and confused Twitter-sphere struggled to understand what had just happened.

And one brave soldier took action.

This probably won't be the move to get the future President kicked off Twitter. But I admire Brian for trying.
