Matt Nelson (@dogfather) dropped out of college because he effectively monetized a twitter account where he numerically objectifies dogs.
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.
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.
My dentist asked how school was and I said “great” because that’s much easier than “oh I actually dropped out because I’ve effectively monetized a twitter account where I numerically objectify dogs”— matt (@dogfather) November 22, 2017
