Get on Twitter!

I have been an avid Twitter user since 2011 and still is one. I have 2 Twitter accounts: 1 for entertainment and professional use. Here is 4 reasons why you should get on it:

  • Follow celebrities:

The beauty of Twitter is that it gives users the opportunity to tweet to celebrities with public Twitter accounts. If you’re lucky, they might just roast you or pay your student loans.


  • For the giggles:

There are accounts for all sorts of reasons.

For when Big Ben strikes:


For high quality pixel gifs:


For relatable Japanese and English tweets:


  • Follow University of Sheffield services accounts:

They will bring you up-to-date news regarding the university or community. The 301 regularly tweets about the services and workshops they provide.

Now that it’s exam season, the University of Sheffield Libraries account tweets about available study places.

There’s also a Twitter account where University of Sheffield members take turns every week to tweet from that account. So, if you like to read other people’s daily tweets, this is the account to follow. Currently, it’s one of the graduate interns of 301, Jess, tweeting!


  • To tweet all day:

You can literally tweet however much or little you want on Twitter. Twitter is a micro-blogging platform, unlike Facebook, so you have a lot more freedom in posting as much or little (as long as it’s within the 120 characters limit!). Some people post long threads on Twitter to tell a story and that’s perfectly fine. The thread can’t be displayed by embedding the first tweet, so click on it and have fun scrolling through it!


Hope that was convincing enough for you! See you next time!



We are 301 Student Skills and Development Centre and we give academic skills advice to our students at the University of Sheffield. We offer workshops and 1:1 appointments.
