Spend a little time on our Social Media page to see what BTN has been doing. Most recently we collected our favorite Twitter accounts and shared them with you. web editor Brent Yarina (@BTNBrentYarina on Twitter) broke out our favorites by school and asked readers to add any others in the comments section of each post.
