Things Aggie Internetters Love

There's some guy named Clayton somewhere right now willing and ready to police your life choices all in the name of gig 'em.

You know them. They express their extreme, irrefutable positions on anything from Star Wars to politics to Aggie football with the heat of a thousand maroon-hot suns. They will digitally chop you at the knees from the comfort of their grease-stained sweatpants in their Energy Corridor loft. They're most happy when they're completely miserable.

They're the Aggie Internetters. Also known as: #AggieTwitter, ExTags, Clayton Heldenfels XIIII, and the Classturbationers.
