From cute hedgehogs to a funny street name - have we included your tweet?

The cutest tweet of the week goes to Poppy’s Crêche Hedgehog Rescue & Rehabiltation in Stowmarket.

They tweeted an adorable picture of one of their rescue hedgehogs enjoying a snooze.

This sparked a reaction of 84 retweets, 362 likes and 18 comments.

A rare 1909 Pattern Greatcoat was bought by a Suffolk man this week and attracted a reaction on Twitter.

Buyer of the coat, Twitter user Taff Gillingham, took to the social media platform to express how chuffed he was to get his hands on this item which the Suffolk Regiment Museum sold in 1995. He had been trying to buy it ever since.

This unique piece got 12 retweets, 109 likes and 18 comments.

Impressive drone footage of Southwold Pier caught our attention this week.

The footage was taken by the DroneAndOut Twitter account and scales the length of the pier with blue skies in the background and calm waves.

This resulted in seven users retweeting it and 16 liking it.

And finally a tweet that made us chuckle, this post didn’t get a big reaction but it still put a smile on our faces.

Twitter account Suffolksnaps took a picture of a road sign named ‘Cake Street’ and quoted it with “Sometimes Suffolk is too good to be true..”

You can find Cake Street in Woodbridge but sadly it isn’t a street of cakes.
