Keeping Up with the Technologies
Sometimes the words that come out of my mouth are pure entertainment to my children. Take my venture into the world of Twitter about a year ago. Although I had an account, I used it exclusively to follow breaking news. I never posted anything—I couldn't imagine anyone being interested in what I had to say. The kids had accounts and I followed them, along with several economics-themed accounts as well. When I broke down and posted my first message, I proudly announced "I did my first twit." You can imagine their laughter, and my shame.
Although I rarely "tweet," I do follow more and more economics news and commentary accounts. (I have 12 followers—most are family.) Of course, I follow the Atlanta Fed on Twitter as well as the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. If you have not had a chance to check out these resources, take a moment and look them over. Also look over those Twitter accounts that the Atlanta Fed follows. There are many great resources for following economic news from across the region.
