Facebook Event I remember one time a couple of years ago when a Clemson student who worked at the radio station tweeted for her followers to unfollow SceneSC because “they only tweeted about Gamecock football” and something else that I can’t remember. Probably local music, but who knows. I’ve toned it back on the Gamecock […]
