In the fast-paced world of sports and social media, BTN.com now offers in-game Big Ten highlights on Twitter. When a big play happens or a memorable moment occurs, BTN.com editors will post and share the video in a matter of minutes.
Let's roll through how to do this with a short Q&A.
Q: OK, so I'm on social media. How do I get those highlights?
A: We produce instant video highlights during Big Ten home games. That means our team of editors watches all of the live action, spots key plays and moments, and then clips and posts them to Twitter.
Follow the Big Ten Network on Twitter (@BigTenNetwork) during any game but especially on football Saturdays. That account will share the best plays from around the conference. If you're looking for even more highlights from specific Big Ten schools, follow our individual Twitter accounts below.
Here's an example of a BTN tweet with an in-game highlight in it:

Don't forget that you can watch games on your tablet and smartphone on our BTN2Go App. BTN2Go is a 24/7 online video stream of the Big Ten Network, including live games. You can download it in the Apple app store, or visit the website at BTN2Go.com. Remember: You can watch live BTN games on the app. If your football game airs on another network, you can watch it on demand later on.
Q: If there are two Big Ten games on at the same time, how do I find out which channel number the game I want to watch is on?
A: Aha! Use the form below.
The BTN GameFinder page is always available and information is updated early on each week. If your game is not listed, it?s on another TV network.
