Anna Sulan Masing, food writer and Eater London contributor: Any tweet that brings food and animals together. And all the food people & writers’ animal posts — shout out to international friends, Pinky and Benny, big love for local lads Hamilton and Doris. I am here for wholesome Twitter in the food world. Here for pets getting social media famous.
