Socks the cat gets 500,000 Twitter followers
One lucky cat has over 500,000 fans online, gaining a huge following on Twitter for his daily ramblings.

Socks, or Sockington to a number of his fans, is gaining a lot of popularity on the internet following a burst of interest in late 2008 which led to a Socks website being set up at the end of December 2008.

His inane yet clever observations are the brainchild of his owner, Jason Scott, who presumably types up Socks' comments as and when he makes them.

One of the most recent posts made by Socks explained: "lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick OK CLEAN wait missed a spot lick lick lick".

The following day, he added: "Watching everybody from the top of the bookshelf I AM LIKE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL except frankly I don't care how many times you guys collide."

It adds a more off-the-wall popular addition to Twitter, which is currently dominated by celebrities including Stephen Fry, Charlie Brooker and Britney Spears.
