Top 5 Marquette Tweeters

With the amount of students taking on Twitter accounts, it’s no surprise that Marquette’s presence on the Twitter scene is growing. In no particular order, here are five of Marquette’s most interesting Twitter birds.

1. @HerbertLowe

Herbert Lowe is a journalism professor at Marquette, and his extensive 22-year journalism career and previous position as president of the National Association for Black Journalists has given him a lot to talk (or rather, tweet) about. Lowe uses Twitter to interact with students and to post updates on his blog, and this makes his Twitter feed lively and engaging. It is certainly one to follow.

Notable Tweets: “A @MarquetteU student said this #usatoday story reminded her of me. “Teachers embrace #socialmedia in class” #smiling”

2. @ShitMUDoesntSay

Though ShitMUDoesntSay is unaffiliated with Marquette, many of its witty tweets reflect the thoughts of the student body. Its list of followers has grown extensively, and it is frequently re-tweeted by Marquette students. This Twitter account will definitely put a smile on your face, and with midterms coming up this week, it deserves some recognition.

Notable Tweets: “I always get through the library turnstile on the first try,”

“‘Web Authentication Redirect’ is my website of choice,”

“Does anyone on campus wear Dr. Dre Beats? I haven’t seen any.”

3. @PaintTouches

With play-by-plays, photos and links to transcripts from men’s basketball games, Paint Touches offers a wide variety of information on the men’s basketball team that is especially helpful during away games, since students are less likely to attend away games and need a way to keep up with the score off the court.

Notable Tweets: “Kenneth Faried’s hair has nothing on Jae Crowder #Jaemazing,”

“Crowder and Jason Clark talking back-and-forth before Crowder sinks two free throws. Love that he talks AND can back it up. #mubb”

4. @DannyPudi

Danny Pudi is a Marquette alum who currently stars as Abed on the NBC comedy “Community”. Pudi often posts funny pictures from on set and exchanges witty banter with his costars Allison Brie (who also stars on the television show ‘Mad Men’) and Yvette Nicole Brown. Pudi sometimes tweets about Marquette too, which makes his twitter feed one to watch.

Notable Tweets: “Mom is still in town. How do I know? Because I found my underwear soaking in a bucket,”

“Ahoya! J Wilson and that Team D really came through today. Happy National Marquette Day!”

5. @MarquetteU

The official Marquette University Twitter account has been nationally recognized as the ninth most influential college Twitter account in the United States, according to the online company Klout, which measures company Twitter reputations. With over 14,000 Twitter followers, Marquette’s Twitter gives the student body a direct gateway to the administration, making student-university interactions instantaneous. Students can tweet Marquette directly and receive prompt responses, and this makes @MarquetteU an essential account to follow.

Notable Tweets: “Dick Enberg’s play about Al McGuire is coming back to Milwaukee: http://go.mu.edu/yHe8B5 Tickets for “COACH” available for March 27 & 28. #mubb,”

“Stressed? http://go.mu.edu/zNgLLG The Counseling Center is offering drop-in hours with tips for relaxation and how to combat test anxiety.”
