#BrownU: Who to follow

We love to tweet. There’s nothing more exhilarating than the challenge of expressing your thoughts in 140 characters or less while preserving your wit and, in BlogDailyHerald’s case, being #meta… Okay, maybe there is, but you get the point. Twitter can help you in school, let you keep in touch with high school friends and even aid you in selecting a career path.  Bottom line: tweeting’s damn cool and pretty relevant to #Brunonia. We’ve compiled a list of Brown-related Twitter accounts that will make your life infinitely easier, or at least keep you from dozing off in lecture. #Czechitout.

  • Brown CareerLAB:  If your parents visited for Parents Weekend, you’re probably still getting calls asking what you’re thinking of doing with your yet-to-be-defined independent concentration. Now you can give your parents some peace of mind by saying you’ll go to info sessions you found out about on Twitter! That might not be what they want to hear verbatim, but it’s good enough.
  • Brown Athletics/BDH Sports: Brown is still a D-1 school even if more than half the campus has no idea what that means… Continue Reading
