Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Please rate the BYU building twitters! So far the ones I am aware of are @hbll, @BYU_MARB, @byu_brmb, @byu_hfac, @byu_fb, @BYUESC, @byu_mb, @BYU_SWKT, @byujkb, @BYU_LSB, @byusfh, @byujsb, @byujfsb, @ByuTanner, and @byutesting. Also, do you think they're all run by the same person? (apart from @hbll of course)

A:

Dear thank you im flattered,

I am proud to say that I was the original BYU building parody twitter account. It's niche, but it's my niche.

I can definitely say that they're not all run by the same person. They all started making accounts about a month ago, and a lot of people followed suit. Honestly, I'm not very impressed by any of the other accounts, I was really hoping that they would come up with novel personalities that would reflect the building they chose, but honestly, they mostly just copied my jokes. I'm flattered, but I was very disappointed for comedy's sake. I chat with most of the accounts, and encouraged them to be original, and I think some of them will get better if they actually keep going.

Also, I think that the SWKT, HFAC, and JKB accounts are my favorite.

- The MARB (Who is amused at the fact that I'm using a different anonymous identity on a webpage where I already have an anonymous identity)

A:

Dear You,

You're correct, the MARB twitter is the best. I am frankly disappointed in everyone else, as I feel that they all just jumped on board because they saw the story in the Universe and thought "hey, I could be funny pretending to be a building on Twitter, too!" That's rather rash, in my opinion, because the humor behind the MARB account is much deeper than just "what if BYU buildings could tweet though."

But that's a rant for another day.

-Frère Rubik, whom engages with the MARB on twitter fairly regularly. You might have been reading his tweets without even noticing.

A:

Dear the marb really is the best,

I just wanted to thank you for introducing me to these most incredible twitter accounts. They are now the best things in my life. Family, friends, good grades, food, sleep...nothing can compare.

I add my wholehearted support to the MARB being the most fantastic.

I would also like to add this to the list: @nihilistbyufood. Not as good as the MARB, but still pretty awesome.
