Here’s one cartoon Marlene Tromp likes

Say this much for Marlene Tromp: She knows Twitter.

The new Boise State University president has been using the social media platform to introduce herself to her new community, making herself a rising star in the local Twitterverse.

Want to relive Garth Brooks’ recent concerts on the Boise State campus? Tromp has plenty of photos for you.

Want retweets of Boise State news releases? Tromp has you covered.

Want to know about Tromp’s morning runs? Check. (Although, in the interest of fairness and full disclosure, this reporter must confess to occasional tweets about running.)

And on Thursday, a Tromp tweet managed to work in a subtle reference to recent headlines.

So say this for Tromp as well: There’s nothing wrong with her shade game.
