Dogs tending bar and serving appetizers, cats spinning the tunes, bunny rabbits hopping and twirling for joy. What on earth are these animals doing and why are they doing it on Twitter?So are you ready to become a party animal? If so, join us tonight starting at 4pm EST. This week's theme is TV/Movie Monsters. You can dress up or come as you are! We will be raising money for Duncan's Place, a sanctuary for homeless cats located in northern Colorado.

Co-Founder and Proprietor Georgia Manley (@Flacatlady) explains, “with so many animals and displaced pets in today’s economy, a group of us knew we had to think outside the litter box and really get creative. My Twitter friend @MaggieTKat and I were having a bad day and decided we wanted to virtually party together. But we also wanted our energy and tweeting skills to go towards a good cause. With all the furry friends we started making on Twitter, we thought it would be fun to host a Thursday afternoon Twitter party while trying to raise money for an animal charity.”
Since that day back on May 10, 2010, more volunteers have been recruited to help with Nipclub. Two stellar Nipclub managers, @Thenascarkitty and @Tinypearlcat, pounced on board to really grow this litter. Eventually a schedule with specific job openings was created that included Barktenders, DJs and even Security Officers.
On Thursday nights starting at 4pm EST, things start heating up with animals from all over the world coming together on Twitter to tweet party messages to each other, including a link to the Nipclub blog. Once on the blog, attendees are dazzled by the glamour and posh menu. A barktender eagerly greets each guest and offers a drink of their choice. Flashing lights, red carpet fashion, a disco ball for dancing, full service valet parking; Nipclub is the place to be for high rolling party animals.
If you are having a hard time imagining so many pets on Twitter, just show up on any given Thursday evening and join in the fun. Nipclub is a virtual animal group. Their main purpose is to raise money for the designated animal rescue of the night. Participation is very easy. Show up on Twitter and follow some of these animals and start tweeting with the hash tag #nipclub. You will be welcome with open paws.
