About

Burnerverse is a slang term and portmanteau derived from the phrase "burner account" or "burner phone" combined with "universe." The term refers to a loosely bound community of anonymous Twitter / X accounts that discuss American college, frat and D1 sports culture. The anonymous nature of the community lends itself to propagating generally politically incorrect or controversial ideas, as well as engaging in contentious actions, such as the burnerverse playing a large role in an online harassment campaign against a college freshman in June 2024 that garnered widespread attention.

Origin

Early mentions of the word "burnerverse" can be traced back as early as June 2020, with X[1] user @DirtyRafer making a post about being an "OG" burnerverse user (seen below). While the post did not gain notable engagement, it is one of the earliest discoverable examples of the term being used on Twitter / X.
