It's March, and that means one thing for basketball fans -- madness. March Madness officially starts with Selection Sunday on March 11. But the fun really begins now, as the conference hoops season winds down and league tournaments set Cinderella hopefuls on their way.

From historic first-round upsets (can a 16-seed finally break through this year?) to the always-emotional "One Shining Moment" final recap, the NCAA Tournament is one of the sporting world's grandest annual events.

But the tournament does come with some built-in problems. Many of the best games happen in the middle of the day, when work or class get in the way. There have always been ways to keep up with the action, of course -- a tiny TV tucked away on your desk, radio broadcasts, and live score updates online, for example.

These days, however, the best way to follow along is on Twitter. But who should you follow?

Luckily, Mashable has you covered with a Sweet 16 list of March Madness must-follows. Need action updates during working hours?

Need a passionate perpective? We've got the best bloggers around. Want to get nerdy with it? We've got you covered there, too.
