A Field Guide to the Penn State Twitterati
If you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans of Twitter here at @OnwardState. For those of you who don’t tweet, though, it might seem like a confusing mess of @’s and #’s, follows and re-tweets. Here’s a guide to who of the Penn State Twitter community is worth following (in less than 140 characters).
@ANGELsucks – Want to know when you’re arbitrarily going to be unable to access ANGEL? This is the account for you.
@dailycollegian – The official account of everyone’s favorite student newspaper. They mostly link to their stories, and they are always working on an update.
@GoPSUSports1 – Penn State Athletics’ feed. You can find updates on all of Penn State’s sports teams.
@LAUSDeanLong – Christopher Long, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies for the College of Liberal Arts, tweets with students in his college.
@OldMainBell – Every hour – ding, ding & ding, ding! ding?
@SHCDean – Schreyer Honors College Dean Christian Brady has a feed full of interesting links, questions, and student interaction.
@StudentBodyPrez – Twitter account of Christian Ragland, this is one of the best ways to keep up-to-date with UPUA. He also has no days off.
