Belgians Are Flooding Twitter With Pictures Of Cats. Here’s Why…

In response to the recent deadly Paris attacks, the Belgian police had a particularly interesting idea for how to maintain a heightened security level: an operation called #BrusselsLockdown. The idea was to create a social media blackout surrounding the work the police were doing, and they asked the general public not to tweet about it.

Below is what might amount to the largest collection of Belgian cats in Internet history. That last one is simply the best.
