Description

The #BrusselsLockdown cats took the honors as the digital animal of the year. This hashtag emerged in Belgium shortly after the Paris terrorist attacks. Police in Brussels asked citizens not to tweet about police activity in their neighborhoods because this information could aid the terrorists. People not only adhered to the request but also flooded Twitter with photos of cats to confuse and mock the terrorists.
