The Twitter Guide to the 2012 NCAA Tournament

Want a unique take on March Madness? Here are the 67 best tweeters (don’t get ahead of me here) covering the 68 teams in this year’s tournament. Since your office blocked CBSSports.com for the month of March, and you’re only able to stretch your lunchbreak so far, follow these guys for the best up-to-the-dribble coverage.

Some methodology went into this. I chose real people (over link aggregators) that showed a history of solid in-game analysis and perspective (when possible) and both bloggers and traditional journalists were considered in every instance. Bonus points for making me laugh.
