Twitter Tips: Check out these Hoosier accounts

Day 2 of our Twitter Tips series takes us to Indiana. We kicked off the 12-installment project Tuesday with the Big Ten school at the top of the alphabet, Illinois, and will post a new one, in alphabetical order, every day until we reach Wisconsin. Our goal with this series is simple: to share some of our favorite school-specific Twitter accounts with our fans. Now, let’s get to the Indiana handles.

The Hoosiers have no shortage of worthy follows, from informative beat writers (@indystar_hutch) to dedicated bloggers (@insidethehall) to famous and passionate alumni (@DanDakich). In other words, whatever it is you’re looking for, Indiana has a presence on Twitter.
