We’ve doled out a list of professors, deans and presidents to follow on Twitter. We’ve even confirmed the 10 accounts every student should be keeping tabs on. But, what about those students? The Twitterverse is full of undergraduates from the Greater Boston area with tweets worth reading, and we’re about to give you 13 of them. From some much needed snark to a good roundup of the day’s entrepreneurial news, these 13 know how to stand out in 140 characters or less.
Derrick Cheung — @freemancho — Although he’s set to graduate from Emerson this semester, and therefore won’t be a student for much longer, Cheung’s a co-founder of Green Street Vault. The beauty of following Cheung? You’ll always know where his truck is, and can keep up-to-date on the freshest discounts. Sneakerheads, rejoice!
Ryan Dawidjan — @ryandawidjan — Co-founder of Startup Babson, Dawidjan’s been a great connector in the Babson community, striving to bridge the gap between undergrads, MBAs and alumni. He also started making a name for himself by reaching out to the Boston startup community via Twitter, so he has some great tips and tricks on how to break through the noise.
Liz Breen — @beinglizbreen — Breen is the student behind Boston University’s wildly entertaining #TweetCreeps. If that’s not enough, she has the answer to world peace. Let’s get real — this girl is just seriously fun to follow.
Drew D’Agostino — @DrewDAgostino — First off, D’Agostino is the student behind Northeastern’s famed “Northeastern State of Mind.” Even better, his blog is perfect for anyone interested in business, technology and entrepreneurship. His goal? “To bring together a community of people who are relentlessly motivated to create things.” How could we not be on board with that?
Peter Boyce — @badboyboyce — Boyce never sleeps, let alone stops tweeting. He’s helped launch Hack Harvard and Harvard College Venture Partners at the University, and is also a community and business director for SkillShare. Simply put: Boyce is a great person to have in your network, and is someone you should know before you meet him.
Emma Tangoren — @emmatangerine — Around Boston University, people refer to Tangoren by her Twitter handle, which comes as no surprise since she nearly 1,300 followers. Tangoren works in the Dean of Students Office, writes for the FYI Student Blog, and helps manage both the @BU_FYI and @ApplyToBU accounts. Interesting thing is, that’s also only half of her extracurriculars. Need we say more?
Jack McDermott — @JackRMcDermott — As a sophomore at Tufts University, McDermott has already launched two startups: Balbus Speech and Speech4Good. He’s also been striving to grow Tufts’ entrepreneurial presence, and is becoming a great connector in the Greater Boston community.
Melissa Reohr — @Smelissareohr — Reohr’s one of Bentley University’s most active tweeters. It comes as no surprise after reading her about.me page that says she’s “developed an interest in marketing and, more specifically, in how companies use social media to reach out to consumers.” She’s certainly learned how to reach out to us and grab our attention.
Jeb Thomas — @JebThomas — Thomas has played an integral role in growing Boston College’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. He’s the co-founder of Jebbit, a student fellow at .406 Ventures and participated in last year’s [email protected] program. With the application deadlines quickly approaching, Thomas could provide some useful tips on what it takes to break in and get noticed.
Kevin Wang — @Mister_Wang — Fun fact: Wang’s a DJ, and has spun at several venues around Boston, including The Estate, Caprice and The Middle East. Cool? Totally. The Boston University junior is also rather hilarious, which is reason enough to follow him on Twitter. I mean, c’mon —
Zach Hamed — @zhamed — As a Harvard College sophomore, Hamed’s already been able to make quite the name for himself around campus. He won Harvard’s undergraduate business plan competition last year with Aid Aide, which he merged with Alltuition back in November. If he can accomplish that much in less than two years, we’re excited to see what he’s got in store for the following two.
Smit Patel — @smit1293 — As a co-founder of FounderMatchup, Patel’s a self-proclaimed “startup junkie.” He’s currently trying to revamp the entrepreneurship club at Suffolk University, and is a young student — only 18 — who’s certainly on the rise.
Tina Yip — @tina_yip — President of the Boston University Marketing Club, Yip’s learned how to market herself, with nearly 1,500 followers on Twitter. Although she’s another student who’s getting ready to graduate, if you start following her now, you can see where she ends up post-commencement. Our guess? You’ll most likely want to hire her for your team.
