The Twitter follow list - Welcome Pittsburgh

Good morning, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) sports fans.  As we head into the new academic year, you’ll note that we added two outstanding higher educational institutions to the ACC this year in Pittsburgh and Syracuse.  We here at SCACCHoops are good neighbors.  Therefore, we want to introduce you to some good folks to follow on Twitter. Our first installment will be for Pittsburgh.  We thank @FearTheStache for his recommendations for this blog post.  

We’ll have three sections in this post, which includes 29 Twitter accounts.  First, we will present some bloggers.  Second, we will present the mass media.  Third, and finally, we’ll introduce our fellow fans from Pittsburgh to some ACC blogger accounts that are must follows (these folks will really give you a terrific introduction to the ACC - I did not put myself on there, but you can follow me, too lol at @hokiesmash).   We’ve also provided some Pittsburgh Panthers Athletic Administration media officials - and a great  Old Dominion University (ODU) follow (as ODU is on Pitt’s schedule this year - and many other ACC teams).
