Tax Twitter Tuesday 11.17.2009

Twitter bird It's Tax Twitter Tuesday time again! Sorry I'm a bit tardy. This Tuesday had me in a real tizzy!

But I'm finally here, and glad you are, too.

For first-timers, on the third Tuesday of each month I sift through the gazillion tax Tweets and collect some as a blog post here at Don't Mess With Taxes.

If you're on Twitter and talk about taxes, all you have to do is keep doing what you're doing. The new lists feature should help me find your item.

But just to make sure I do, you can always "at" me; that is, include my Twitter ID @taxtweet in your Tweet. Or if we follow each other on Twitter, can send it to me via direct message there.

OK, that's enough housekeeping. Let's get to Tax Twitter Tuesday!

Thanks for the Tweet mention! I'm going through social media withdrawl these days, as we are going through personnel changes at work, which means insanity. Guess it's not as bad as Congress though.

I notice the J K Harris site doesn't mention Mr Harris' time in prison, lol.
