“I had no idea it would catch on to the degree that it has, “ the creator says.
Depending on whether the night before was a big “going out” night, the twitter account receives anywhere from 1-10 photos a day, mostly through email submissions.
If you haven’t checked it out you should. You may even come across one of your friends.
Junior Janie Faulkner follows the account on twitter and has come across people she knows.
“I know three people that have been on it,” Faulkner said. “I think Tar Heel Makeout
is hilarious; I’m a big fan.”
The reactions to the account have been mixed but most students realize the humor in the photos.
“I just learned about Tar Heel Makeout and think it is really funny as long as it isn’t me on there,” junior Olivia Matcham said.
Some reactions have been negative but these are mostly students caught in the act and later embarrassed by the photos.
The creator said that he or she has no problem taking down photos if they are requested to be removed.
“I do this because the account is supposed to be fun, and it’s not if people are seriously emotionally hurt by what shows up on it,” the creator said.
Sophomore Hilda Tajalli realized a picture of her was on the twitter account after a friend told her.
She was able to get the photo removed because she had a friend who knew the creator.
“It’s funny from an outer perspective but when you are actually in the picture it is embarrassing,” Tajalli said.
Running the twitter account is a timely commitment and the creator does not intend on managing it for much longer.
“Due to the large following it has now acquired, I will eventually pass it along to someone who is willing to put in the time and effort that it takes to run,” the creator said.
So the next time you go out with your friends and have a little too much fun don’t do anything too embarrassing. It could end up on twitter.
