Matt Nelson (@dogfather) dropped out of college because he effectively monetized a twitter account where he numerically objectifies dogs.

The popular account We Rate Dogs (@dog_rates) on Twitter is followed by over 8 million people, including JK Rowling and Cole Sprouse.

Each tweet of him rating a dog out of ten, often exceeding the scale with a 12/10, generates multiple hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets.

His Twitter account @dog_feelings, otherwise known as Thoughts of Dog, has 2.5 million followers because, as he says, he’s “good at writing like a dog and embodying that behavior.” Like We Rate Dogs, each tweet generates multiple hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets.

He has similar accounts with millions of followers on Instagram as well.

His work has been featured in scores of major media publications like CNBC, Money.com, Yahoo Finance, BBC, and Entrepreneur.

He makes six figures rating dogs on social media. How? Find out in my conversation with the man Time.com called the “dog king of the internet,” 22-year-old Matt Nelson.

"Jordan is an incredible podcaster. The show is high quality all-around, from the guests to the music to the audio quality. It is clear Jordan is passionate and knowledgeable about what he does. I've listened to 5+ in the less than 24 hours since I've discovered this show and I'll be listening to it regularly from hear on out. I listen to A LOT of podcasts (Gary Vee, Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes, etc.) and Jordan's show is in that upper echelon. It's a must listen!"

“Jordan is extremely passionate with a nice touch of calmness to him. He allows the guests to speak majority of the show instead of narcissistically trying to add his 2 cents in all the time and make it about him. If you’re interested in hearing substantial content from people of superb interest in today’s world, listen to this podcast.”
