Next stop on our Twitter Tips series: Northwestern. We've already featured seven schools (see them all here), but now it's time to turn our attention to the guys who tweet about the Wildcats. Just as a refresher, this is a 12-installment series that spotlights every Big Ten institution. The goal is simple: to share some of our favorite school-specific Twitter accounts with our fans. With that out of the way, let?s get to the Northwestern handles.
The Wildcats have several worthy follows, from informative beat writers (@TeddyGreenstein) to dedicated bloggers (@LakeThePosts) to the voice of the Wildcats (@DaveEanet). In other words, whatever it is you're looking for, Northwestern has a presence on Twitter.
