How do you use BTN Connect?
It's simple. Just click over to there now and poke around. We have pages for each school and the topics that are trending for each school. Look at the right rail o your school page.
Do I need to be on Twitter to use it?
No, not at all. But if you are, you can participate by adding your tweets to the conversation and getting your questions and comments submitted to our #AskBTN section. When any member of our team replies to your tweet, it will appear there as a Q&A. But you also just sit back and take it all in.
What's a tweet map?
We like these. BTN.com Connect constantly scours the Twitterverse for the most recent tweets about each Big Ten school. If your tweet contains location info and you school's hash tag, it could appear. Jump right to your school's connect page using these links, too.
