Here at Surviving the OU we spend a fair few hours each week flicking through social media. Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, there are a few about. If there’s one feature of the Open University Students’ Twitter account that always brings a smile to my face then it’s the “best overheard” tweets. This account gathers together some of the whispers and words of wisdom uttered by OU students. We’ve gathered together a few for you to enjoy, below.
This recent Christmas tweet is a belter.
