Talking about Money on Twitter

I have about 2500 Twitter followers now, and my feed is alive with interesting financial stories, so here are a few of the ones I enjoyed reading this week.

Glad to see that the Bank of Canada is celebrating the Queen’s record-breaking reign (with a more secure bill):

The Economist (unfortunately) gets this one very right (also true in Canada):

How do you work around the seemingly definitive statement “first time home buyer“? Just ask Preet:

I did not realize that the CRA offered this service, but it is well worth checking out in my estimation:

The greatest retirement tweet of the year (if not kind of NSFW) :

Kerry Taylor gives us the narrowest house in Toronto, which still costs a bloody fortune

Teach, your children well, about money that is

In case you thought all those fun games on your iPad are free…

Laboured Personal Finance Tweets of the Week

To help you enjoy this long weekend (the last of the summer of 2015 I might add), here are some of the most interesting tweets of the past week in personal finance (and other things too).

Has Preet created a new Economics buzzword for the Money Talking Heads ?

Another interesting investment profile from Larry MacDonald

Another big win for cord cutters (in the USA at least) all NFL games on CBS will be streamed

Any post that has Louis CK in it, has got to be good

This should be interesting, and I will be there too

I really don’t know how Scotiabank can justify this one, amazing bit of Banks Behaving Badly

Is it time to rebalance? Maybe, if you need to rebalance, now would be a good time

Who else could drive around London sitting on a chair, on a Leyland Mini? Mr. Bean of course! 25 years ago? Really?!?!

More Great Personal Finance Tweets for the Week


Another round of some of the finest money tweets of the week, hope you enjoy

Why is it that the Chinese stock market and economy confuses my simple mind?

Not sure I completely agree with Mr. Bernstein, but I think I understand his sentiments:

Some very sound advice from our friends at USA Today:

Finally, this is my favourite tweet of my own this week, nice graphic:

Not sure the Bank of Canada is only concerned about commodities, but you never know, do you?

High praise when someone calls it the best investing article:

One more from Facebook, which is actually a linked in link, if you like pointers to pointers:

Personal Finance Tweets of the Week (End of Summer)

Haven’t done this for a while, but here are some of the more interesting financial (and other) tweets that I saw this week. Interesting that Twitter has also removed the 144 character limit on direct messages, so it has now become a full messaging system too.

Agreed, Debt is Bad


I really liked this one, it was condemning the banks trying to encourage folks to build up more debt? Say what?

Well that lets me out…


Uh oh, what about 54 year olds?


I guess the only advice that I can give is, just don’t look, or just don’t care?


What is the best way to teach kids about money? My 2 cents worth is there as well.

Famsac does very good work


Glad to see the FAMSAC food truck rally went well last week. Evidently my Doppelganger (Mayor Watson) was there as well.

You need a reason?


Remember you are not attached at the hip to your bank, if you can get a better deal, get it!

Money and Twitter Mixing

Another installment of the best financial tweets of the week. I continue to try to figure out whether I need to cut down the number of folks I follow or find a smarter way to get to the important tweets of the week.

Given this was a week with the Bank of Canada cutting interest rates, oil price shenanigans and King Abdullah’s passing the twitter verse did have a lot of interesting stuff.

The Media Maven of Money (Preet B.) started flexing his financial chops with a very interesting set of simulations to try to answer the time-honored question, is it better to buy your house, or rent and invest your money?

Is King Abdullah’s passing a sign of changes in the Middle East? That remains to be seen

This is why you should have the Bank of Canada on your Twitter Feed. You should read their policy stuff yourself, it’s not long and usually the “talking heads” leave major portions out.

Given gas is so darn cheap are you putting more money in your savings? One point of view of what is happening down south

Wasn’t 1-2-3-4-5 the password on Spaceballs? Yeh, some amazingly interesting passwords out there

Did you give over the holidays? Maybe it’s time to start thinking about that?

A bit of shameless self-promotion to end things off, I am on another list of bloggers you should read (along with some other interesting folk).
