OMAHA, Neb. ― University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman is turning to billionaire Warren Buffett for advice on Twitter even though the investor has only sent five tweets.

Buffett appeared Wednesday in one of Perlman’s “Perls of Knowledge” videos that showcase the chancellor’s silly side while promoting Buffett’s alma mater.

In the video posted online at http://perlsofknowledge.unl.edu Buffett takes a break from grading losing entries in his $1 billion NCAA basketball bracket contest to talk to Perlman.

Buffett tells Perlman to go with kittens in his tweet because the cat market is up.

These new videos are supposedly revealing who has been helping Perlman succeed on social media. In previous videos, Perlman offered his thoughts on the zombie apocalypse, the expression “YOLO” and UNL’s skateboarding professor.
