Universities Just Want to Have Fun!

I hope you’ve got Cyndi Lauper playing in your head after that title!

Social media is very unpredictable, as we all know, and sometimes tweets will pop up in your feed that you’re just not expecting! We’ve all seen the Twitter conversations between brands interacting that are light hearted (most of the time) and fun.

Looks like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? Many would say this type of conversation doesn’t have a place in higher education social media, but who says we can’t have fun without being snarky? Recently, I was given the opportunity to have one of these type of conversations with Texas Wesleyan.

So who says universities can’t have a little fun? And thanks to @TexasWesleyan for starting our convo!
