Must-Follow Twitter Accounts for the NCAA Tournament Teams in 2016

Let the Madness begin!

Filling out the perfect bracket is one thing, knowing who to follow on Twitter for all of the March Madness events is another. From the crying to the dancing, you're not going to want to miss a minute of this tournament. 


Every team has an official account, but sometimes those aren't always the best source, especially if you're a fan of more entertaining tweets. I've got you covered from college basketball must-follows to team-specific ones. You can thank me later.


The Sweet 16 - These are the national accounts to follow for all the action. They should keep you informed and in some cases, even entertained.
