An area cat named Twiskers is facing the ire of his social media followers this evening after it was discovered that he was artificially inflating the like counts on his Instagram photos by liking them from various accounts he’d set up.  

“It’s shameful,” said Tom Detlund, a former-follower of the cat. “I was a huge Twiskers fan — he takes gorgeous landscapes — but when I found out he was boosting his like counts in fraudulent ways, I unfollowed immediately.”

Twiskers has lost at least 12 followers since last night, according to social media tracking web sites.
