Twitter du Jour: UK Makeouts surpasses UK Passouts


Fun, fake, faux, parody twitter accounts at the University of Kentucky have become something of a campus trend.

There is @FakeBillyClyde, “Back to back losses? Am I the coach again?”

There is @DrunkCoachCal, “on the twelfth day of Christmas, the Big Blue gave to me…”

along with @DrunkCoachStoops trailing them all with only 308 followers.”

“DramaticCal” is a highly entertaining tumblr account.

Two twitter entries are especially popular this week: @ukpassouts and @ukmakeouts (approaching 10,000 followers). You can find @UKMakeouts on Instagram as well.

Reaction is mixed:

“DramaticCal” on tumblr.

“To the girls bragging about being on the ukmakeouts twitter in the library, it’s not something to be proud of #getsomeclass.”

“I wonder how many breakups have occurred due to @UKMakeOuts?”

But Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones was retweeted 166 times when he posted, “The newest best thing on Twitter is @UKMakeouts. Just saying.”
