The Penn State Twitterverse Is Expanding
Despite a report saying that Penn State only has 4 official Twitter accounts, it seems the Penn State Twitterverse has made quite an expansion over the past few months. Back in February, I wrote a post about a few personal Twitter accounts of Penn Staters. Now, accounts ranging from athletic staff to departments to clubs to whole Colleges and Universities have all been created and put to good tweet-use.
With a little bit of hunting, I found around 80 official Penn State Twitter accounts. After the jump, you can find a list of officially “official” Penn State Twitter accounts. They are broken up into nine categories: Academic, Campuses, Libraries, Clubs & Orgs, Sports, Research, Student Services, Museums and Other.
Also, I’ve created a list (a new feature of Twitter) of all the Official Penn State Twitters. You can view the Official Penn State List. Both the Twitter list and this post have identical content as of publishing.
I only spent about an hour composing this list of 52 Penn State accounts and I have no doubt I missed some. If you know of any I missed, please leave a comment and I’ll add it to this post and the Twitter list.
Update 26 Oct, 2009 10:47 AM: My original list of 52 official Twitter accounts has been edited to include a total of 80 accounts.
Update 29 Oct, 2009 1:40 PM: The list below has been updated to include 83 Penn State Twitter accounts. Thanks for all the reader suggestions! Keep them coming.
