“The Comedian” <twitter.com/wokkawokkawokka>
Daniel Wacha, or @WokkaWokkaWokka, is a second-year chemistry/pre-med student from Caldwell, N.J., and his tweets reflect the same style of the comedians, movies and TV writers that he follows—quick, random and funny. He views Twitter as an effective, informative tool to get both breaking news and hilarious Internet stories.
“I’m pretty convinced that Twitter is the only way I’ll ever be successful or famous,” Daniel says.
Take a look at a few of the funnyman’s tweets:
“Went to find a quick fact on The Gettysburg Address on Wikipedia. Now I know Billy Ray Cyrus’s complete discography. S--t #WikipediaBlackout”
“I’m like the #dubstep of dating chicks; Comes off fun with a lot of promise, but eventually ends up sounding dumb and boring. #wobblewobble”
“I like to believe that there is a utopia somewhere in which the Taco Bells have an item called the ‘bluntwrap supreme.’ #TargetDemographic”
“The Business Man” <twitter.com/SteveCasella>
@StephenCasella, a second-year marketing and finance student and Pawley’s Island, S.C., native has been investing since the age of nine and brings his insight online. A majority of his profile activity includes articles and personal opinions about the national and global economy.
“Only allowing 140 characters per tweet forces the user to make sure he voices his most important ideas,” Stephen says.
Check out some of his stock tips:
“Market up, dollar up... #Gold up? Something to take a look at. $GLD”

Michael’s tweets are witty and entertaining as he navigates his way around campus and college life.
