How’s your bracket?

We’ve reached the Sweet 16 in the NCAA College Basketball March Madness tournament. Although, I’m ecstatic that the University of Washington Huskies are still alive, my bracket is limping along as I only have two final four picks still alive. But it’s been great entertainment.


Yes Tim, it’s been a fun $10! This year has been a crazy tournament with so many upsets and the conversation has been enhanced via Twitter. I’ve written before how Twitter enhances the sports experience, whether talking about the Red Sox, Shaq, or the NFL.

Since those early posts, athletes from all sports, professionals and amateurs have joined Twitter to speak with their fans.  There have been so many athletes on Twitter that you may not be able to track all of your favorites. So I was quite pleased to learn of this fantastic site from the Wall Street Journal that allows you to follow the tweets of players and coaches in the tournament.

The site is organized like a bracket so that you can see the most recent tweets for the two opponents in each game.  It even enables you to follow a list of your favorite team’s players. Of course, I followed the Huskies.


So how is your bracket doing and who are you following?
