Or, as my tax Twitter pal Robert D Flach, aka @rdftaxpro on the social media site, dubbed it, T3. Actually, Robert, it's going to be T4, as Tax Twitter Tuesday will appear on the third Tuesday of each month. (That wasn't planned; this first appearance just happened to fall that way and I decided it was blogging/Twittering fate.)
"So," as RDF asked, "@taxtweet (that's me!) what's the story with T3?"
The story is I spend a lot (some days too much) time on Twitter. And while I like to gab about things beyond taxes (really!), there are a lot of tax folks on the micro blogging site. And they frequently offer up in the required 140-or-less characters some interesting, informative, unusual and just plan fun tax tidbits.
If you do tweet, you know that stuff often gets lost in all the postings, especially if you follow a lot of folks. So I hope to gather a representative sample of those overlooked tax twitterings on this and future Tax Twitter Tuesdays and share them here on Don't Mess With Taxes.
@gyrfalcon2138 I'm still amazed that Austin has no state income tax, and a lower sales tax than Cleveland, and yet it costs less to live here.

And we close this inaugural Tax Twitter Tuesday with @solmc's re-Tweet of some good advice for lawmakers thinking abour raising alcohol taxes:
For non-Twitter folks, the # are a way to tag and track topics.
And for you on-Twitter folks, be sure to follow me, @taxtweet, and other personal finance and tax Tweeple every day, not just on third Tuesdays!
