Twitter is the new “It girl” of social networking. Just as you never know who you might see walking down Liacouras Walk, you never know who might start following you on Twitter. Sounds dangerous in an adventurous sort of way, right?
Temple students, professors and organizations are using Twitter to post information, personal work or just to voice an opinion. That’s the beautiful thing about the Internet; you can say whatever you want – almost. Each week, I’ll spy on Temple’s Twitter community and add in my two cents
Here is what TU is tweeting about this week, in regards to the LGBTQ community and National Coming Out Week.
@templetsg: National Coming Out Week comes to Temple next week
Temple’s Student Government announced the start of National Coming Out Week and attached the link to an article printed in Philadelphia Gay News, which highlights various NCOW events on Main Campus this week. The article begins with the line “Gay? OK!” the same phrase on T-shirts being worn by members of Temple’s Queer Student Union this week. The T-shirts look great, but I think Temple students should know that gay is more than just OK – and I’m sure QSU would agree.
@KateHinchey: I dead serious just used my family being super gay as ammunition against the gay is a choice argument
Food for thought: National Geographic recently reported that Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite, brainwashes mice and rats to be attracted to cat’s urine. Why can people understand and accept this slightly strange study but not be willing to accept or even hear the argument that people are naturally gay? Just sayin’.
@Kado2: Why have we never thought to try to make #woodys a trending topic? #gaydiary
If Philadelphia in its entirety had a Twitter (a verified account, of course), its trending topic on Wednesdays would almost definitely be #woodys. Don’t forget about Sisters, though.
@AJBanderas: I just found out Lady GaGa is playing at the Wachovia Center. This is a must for the gays!
This may be a must for the homosexuals, but it should also be a must for the any-other-kind-of-sexuals. Although, the asexuals might be confused when they find out Poker Face is not actually about gambling.
Twitter, the Temple community and I still have one question for you, QSU: Why aren’t you in the micro-blogosphere? If @PeabodyHall can do it, anyone should be able to.
