Plymouth State administration uses Twitter to put down potential riots


PLYMOUTH - "That's not our purpose, our purpose it not to blow up because we're going to start a riot. That's not a good business model and that's not how things work around here," said Trevor Finney, creator of FinnaRageTV.

FinnaRageTV is a party network that was linked to the Keene riots. The company has been tweeting about Plymouth State University leading up to Halloween weekend.

Their account read "It's official: Plymouth State for Halloween!! #Finnarage #PSU."

But the plans to party in Plymouth were quickly scrapped when the account read, "Due to yet again more complications, we can't make it to Plymouth State. Our weekend is now open."

University administrators took the tweets very seriously.

"We look at all types of social media, students send us information as well, and they try to let us be aware of information that we are not aware of," said Jim Hundrieser, Vice President of Student Affairs at Plymouth State University.

A letter went out to University Students.

"Given the incidents of the past weeks, the police are on a heightened alert. In talking with students, we are optimistic that PSU students have learned from those events and that the behaviors exhibited elsewhere will not occur here."

The letter even included the Dean's cell phone number so students can reach out and voice any concerns of potential rioting or unsafe party antics.

Students say they'll still go out but are smarter about how they party.

"Even the parties they have here they are not even huge blowouts kind of just like getting together with your friends you're not going to go out and rip the town apart," said student Alyssa Duke.
