Trojanweets.com is a realtime microblogging service designed to aggregate Twitter messages related to the University of Southern California. Unlike message boards where you have to refresh the page to see updates, Trojantweets.com updates automatically and instantly to show you what’s happening as people create posts.
Since Trojantweets.com integrates seamlessly with Twitter accounts, messages can be posted from anywhere with an Internet connection or even from SMS-enabled mobile phones. So if “Frank the Tank” is going streaking through the quad into the gymnasium, he can tweet as he’s running and you’ll know to go join him. You can even bring your green hat.
Messages are limited to 140 characters and will post to the Trojantweets.com feed as well as the associated Twitter feed instantly. It lets you be an armchair quarterback and have the world hear you, rather than just your roommate who likes Easy Cheese.
Feel free to take a look around, but the best way to see what it’s all about is to sign-up by following the very simple steps below. We really appreciate you visiting our site! Feel free to contact us with any comments, questions, gripes, or to send pictures of the hottest cheerleaders. We’re real people and will try to respond.
Thank you, and Go Trojans!

Once you’ve logged into Trojantweets.com, you have 2 options:
1) The simplest way is to post messages directly from our site. These messages will post on both Trojantweets.com and in your Twitter feed.
2) You can also post messages on your Twitter feed and add the “#usc” hash tag. The only catch with this method is that you must be logged into our site and have clicked the “Remember Me” option when you logged into Twitter. (That way your credentials are stored in a cookie, for you techie nerds who know the difference between a real cookie and an Internet cookie.)
