@AwkwardState: Everyone’s favorite Penn State “girl,” Awkward State keeps the laughs coming as it chronicles the life of a naive Penn State female.
@PSUQuiznos: Account for the Quiznos downtown. From time to time, the owner will offer a tweet deal, so be alert!
@KevinHornePSU: Our Managing Editor, Kevin Horne. He’s really cool (Editors Note: He’s not at all).
@RBecklerPSU: Our Penn State news editor, Ryan Beckler. He’s even cooler.
@UPUA: Your student government at Penn State. Sure, we make fun of them, but this account is always an interesting follow, especially during their weekly Wednesday night meetings.
@StateCollegecom: StateCollege.com gives you news for anything and everything State College. It’s worth following their writers @Ben_Jones88, @MinkNate and @LC_Nichols as well.
@evilbillobrien: A parody account of Coach Bill O’Brien. Lets you know what really goes on in BOB’s head. Master troll.
@PennStateProbz: The #PennStateProblems account. Lets you share your pain with other Penn Staters about the problems we have here in Happy Valley.
@Karl_rominger: Sandusky’s defense attorney Karl Rominger. Trivia lover, Zeno’s frequenter. You never know when he might be picking up the tab for everyone!
@iunlearn: Soc. 119 teacher Sam Richards. One of Penn State’s best known professors. If you even need random facts to make you think, he’s your man.
@SBench12: Backup quarterback. Probably the most entertaining follow on the football team.
@JayPaterno: The former Penn State coach is always tweeting about anything but Penn State. His signature tweets are pictures from his morning walks that exemplify the beauty of Happy Valley.
@AdamBreneman87: Top football recruit Adam Breneman. The man who has stayed true to Penn State through think and thin before he enrolled. The key recruit to Bill O’Brien’s first real recruiting class. Following Adam is your best way to keep updated on all things recruiting for PSU Football.
And last, but certainly not least,
@OnwardState: Duh! This is your place to get all of your news and opinions of what’s happening in and around Penn State, but you already knew that! We also have the most followers of any college media outlet in the world (I’m modest, I know).
We know there are dozens of other great accounts to follow too. Let us know who we missed in the comments.
Alex Robinson is a sophomore at Penn State. Feel free to also follow him at @ARobinsonPSU!
