A definitive ranking of campus celebrity Twitters

I never knew that campus celebrities were a thing until this semester, but I've come to love their Twitter account more than I love my coloring books, and that's a lot of love. Here's a ranking of the best Twitters for our fellow Tar Heels:

6. Gary Birdsong

Ranking: 2/10

I'm assuming that this is a student-made account. While I somewhat admire Gary's honesty on social media, he is inconsistent with his tweeting and his punctuation is atrocious. 

5. Kennedy Meeks

Ranking: 6.5/10

Need some positivity on your TL? Follow Kennedy and you'll be sure to fall in love with his tweets (and his header photo).

4. Carol Folt

Ranking: 7/10

Chancellor Folt's consistent tweeting combined with her upbeat spirit makes her an ideal celeb to follow. 

3. Roy Williams

Ranking: 8.2/10

I'm kind of cheating here, since Roy doesn't actually have a Twitter. But I just have a feeling that Roy's tweets would be full of joy, so here's an honorary ranking. 

2. Rameses

Ranking: 9.6/10

Not going to lie, Rameses is so high up on the list because he retweeted me once. That's beside the point, but his tweets are great if you need some school spirit.

1. Holden the Golden 

Ranking: 10/10

Nothing beats these adorable tweets from an even more adorable pup.
