Rutgers on Twitter

In preparation for the Alumni Leaders Conference this on Friday, October 25, 2013, I happened to think about the various ways my alma mater, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, connects with people. Specifically, what “handles” or accounts are out there on Twitter.

Why Twitter? Because it is the fastest method today to send out information which can be displayed on a manifold of other sites online such as websites and Facebook. But it also requires the person managing the account to think how they are going to say what they want to in a limited number of characters, 140. That means the content needs to be focused and intensive. It also means the account needs to be targeted to specific people who will be interested in the content being published.

This listing is also to provide a compendium of the official Twitter accounts across the University and campuses. If you know of accounts I may have missed, please let me know and I’ll add them to this list. Of course, this information and the links are correct as of today, October 23, 2013, and are subject to change.
