You may find that work, school, or other obligations keep you from focusing on Twitter the way you should. Thankfully for you, I'm able to tune out those distractions and provide you with a weekly rundown of the best tweets from around campus.
Another week down, meaning we're one week closer to kickoff. To help celebrate, here are the best tweets from this week.

I can't even hate on this. The only time I golf is if the balls are colored and the hole is less than 15 yards away.
I feel like every new hot button topic is labeled as either "war on ____" or "______gate". Lots of wars and gates going on now-a-days.— Mike (@mike63bennett) June 3, 2015
The fact my phone charger broke and I have to go buy another one at 1 am...— Sean Nuernberger (@Sean4Heisman1) May 30, 2015
Few people I'm talking to are important enough to justify me doing this, and the ones who are will gladly wait. But you do you Sean, you do you.
@RIP_JEP you must have a really successful dating life, would love to hear about it sometime!— Joe Burger (@jburgs37) June 4, 2015
Idk if I dislike campus part or the team up north more— EzekielElliott#15 (@EzekielElliott) June 4, 2015
This tweet could either be about campus parc or campus partners. In either case, I wholeheartedly endorse this.
Taco Bell keeps thinking of new ways to serve the same exact thing over and over again lol— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) June 5, 2015
It's insane really. Everything on the menu has the same basic taste. It really doesn't matter what you order.
Please try to watch this video with the sound on without laughing. I don't think it can be done. The music is just too much.
Waiting on my chance to show off my touchdown dance man— Jamarco Jones (@jjones_74) June 1, 2015
@EzekielElliott yup and every other group. Got some ideas!— Mekka Don (@MekkaDonMusic) June 2, 2015
I, for one, can't wait for the song for the specialists. That'll be fire.
Just got out of class, chipotle, here I come— Cardale Jones (@CJ12_) June 3, 2015
Being able to mute people on here is nice— Kam Williams (@kd__will) June 1, 2015
It's a great feature, sure, but I don't use it. I just unfollow. If you take social media seriously enough to be hurt if I unfollow you, that's on you not me.
Hey @OSULinebackerU and @OSU_DBU, if you guys teach us how to be athletic we'll teach you how to be good at Twitter— OSU Specialists (@BuckSpecialists) June 3, 2015
Stephen collier can't ride a bike
As the scout team quarterback this season, Stephen Collier more-than-adequately prepared the Silver Bullets to face perhaps the most complex and uptempo offense in the nation as well as this year's Heisman Trophy Winner— and he did it in less than 10 days.
Apparently, that was easier than riding a bike.
Yall I just busted my on my bike on the Oval don't think too many people saw me butttttt if you did that was me.— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) June 4, 2015
Ran straight into the nearest building. That's embarrassing— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) June 4, 2015
I look dumb for riding a bike to class anyways but to crash on my face is something else. Man.— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) June 4, 2015
Anyways I got up smooth and played it off like a G. Have tire marks on me though pic.twitter.com/6TRgw8pMK5— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) June 4, 2015
Mom was concerned.
@BossLadyN lol no mom I just have a big knee— Stephen Collier (@S13Collier) June 4, 2015
The fake lantern returns?
Backstory for those of you that do not have Twitter accounts or somehow missed this account: @TheFakeLantern is hands down the best Ohio State related anonymous account (actually, it's the only one that's even mildly good. All the others are pretty much garbage).
Now you ask, "Kevin, if this account is as good as you say it is, why hasn't it been featured in the 'Follow Friday' section, or any of its Tweets been in previous articles?"
Well here's why. In March, they Tweeted this:
The OSU women's hockey head coach has resigned effective immediately, so we might as well also resign; bye— The Fake Lantern (@TheFakeLantern) March 11, 2015
And they did not back down. They have been gone for nearly three months.
Until this week...
They made their "return" by retweeting this tweet:
What does it mean?! A fittingly-anti-climactic-and-trollfully-delicious return? Unparalleled dedication to a local clothing company? A Braxton-esque "that was an accident"? Whatever it was, rest assured, I will now be on @TheFakeLantern watch.
The question is, did people even notice they were gone? You tell me.
I miss @TheFakeLantern— Justin Anderson (@Justin_Blake_A) June 5, 2015
@TheFakeLantern I can't live without you please come back and give my life meaning again— Annie (@ThisCraftCray) April 21, 2015
. @TheFakeLantern goodnight sweet prince— Davis Remy (@davisr10) April 26, 2015
@TheFakeLantern checking to see if you've tweeted again is like checking to see if it's gonna rain. useless and disappointing— Stefon Spielberg (@TheReal_BLamb) May 2, 2015
this week's winner of twitter
When did that pretty little liars show go from gossiping high schoolers to silence of the lambs?— Mike (@mike63bennett) June 1, 2015
Following the lead of @BuckSpecialists, a few other position groups joined Twitter this week
- Wide Receivers: @Zone6_OSU
- Offensive Line: @OSU_Slobs
- Linebackers: @OSU_LBU
- Defensive Line: @R2X_Rushmen
Eventually, all the defensive accounts will likely be merged into this one, collective one for the entire defense.
- Buckeye Defense: @S1LVERBULLETS
As far as I can tell, these are pretty official accounts run by somebody on staff, so they'll be a good follow.
So far, I haven't found an account for the quarterbacks or the runningbacks, but maybe those will pop up.
Note: that isn't your cue to go make an @OSU_QBs account. Leave it to the coaches and players. People who make fake accounts are the worst kinds of people.
