The Corn Nation Twitter 100

THE essential list of Husker Twitter accounts to follow for the year 2013.

Husker Nation may span coast to coast and around the world, but thanks to the magic of Twitter, Big Red fans and alumni near and far can connect like never before.

Where else do you get to discuss X's and O's (no pun intended) with Touchdown Tommie, get an inside look at a Tim Miles coached practice, and debate the merits of whether or not Bo Pelini is the right man for the program with fans you've never met in person all within a matter of minutes?

It should come as no surprise that the Huskers have a big presence in the Twitterverse, and that fact made our task of identifying the top 100 Twitter accounts to follow that much more difficult. We polled Corn Nation staffers to come up with a group of their recommended follows and then debated the merits of all recommendations to eventually compile THE essential list of Husker accounts to follow for the year 2013. We considered post frequency, entertainment value, timely content, fan engagement, relevancy to 2013, and originality when debating which accounts should be on the list. We also considered the overall variety of accounts in the list before we finally came to a "consensus". Since the list will change year-to-year, we figured we would add a few under-the-radar type accounts that rose to prominence in 2013 as well.

With all that said, we know this list is still subjective so we want to know what you think. Let us know who you feel was snubbed and where we screwed up by leaving us your thoughts in the comments section. The list intentionally does not include any* CN-related accounts, but we encourage you to follow the entire Corn Nation team. You can view all of our accounts at the very bottom of the list.


Presented in random order, we present to you The Corn Nation Twitter Top 100:

The Essentials

The Crème de la Crème (of corn). The tweeters that can't be beat, won't be beat. The Twitter accounts any die-hard Husker fan must follow. We doubt this list will change very much or at all in the coming years.

1. Nebraska Huskers - @huskers

Where else would we start but with the official Twitter account of the Nebraska Athletic Department?

2. Corn Nation - @cornnation

3. Tunnel Walk of Shame - @TunnelWalkShame

If we handed out a Twitter Account of the Year Award, this would be a finalist.

4. Team Jack - @TeamJackHoffman

5. Fake Bo Pelini - @FauxPelini

You know it's good when the *SPOILER ALERT* ACTUAL Bo Pelini didn't make the list.

6. World-Herald Big Red - @OWHbigred

7. Tim Miles - @CoachMiles

8. UNL News - @UNLNews

You may not have went to school there, but if you plan on coming to Lincoln for a game it wouldn't hurt to keep up to date on all the headlines, happenings and other campus information from the news office at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Plus, it's not all about sports, is it?

The Writers & Publications

The Blogs & Bloggers

For a more "organic" feel to Husker coverage, follow these blogs and bloggers. The writers for the "big" publications can't exactly let their opinions fly as their access to the programs they cover may be cut off, so it's nice to get opinions from those that have a little more freedom.
