Who the heck is Ajay Chahar? You may find out if you follow his life by visiting Colgate University’s home page. (Look in the bottom-right corner.)
That’s because Mr. Chahar, a freshman at Colgate, is more or less the university’s official twitterer — that is, someone who posts “tweets” on Twitter, the real-time message service that goes out to cell phones and computer screens. The university provides its home-page link to “follow Ajay Chahar” under the heading “’Gatetwitter.” The last update pretty much gives an indication of the excitement that is the life of Ajay: “finished physics class and now headed to the library!” The exclamation point is too much.
Mr. Chahar reportedly had 10 followers recently, but now he has nine. (Let’s see: Director of PR, one; university president, two; mom, three; dad, four….) Personally, I’ll wait for “’Gatetwitter: The Greek Edition.” —Scott CarlsonReturn to Top
