The next stop on our Twitter Tips series takes us to Nebraska. We've already featured other schools (see them all here), but now it's time to turn our attention to the guys who tweet about the Huskers in our 12-installment series that spotlights every Big Ten institution, in alphabetical order. The goal is simple: to share some of our favorite school-specific Twitter accounts with our fans. That said, let?s get to the Nebraska handles.
The Huskers boast plenty of worthy follows, from informative beat writers (@HuskerExtraBC) to a plethora of dedicated bloggers, including @CornNation. Basically, whatever it is you're looking for, Nebraska has a presence on Twitter.
