The Fed Tweets

The Federal Reserve, that august body known for vague pronouncements on its control of the U.S. money supply, now has a Twitter account. When we last checked, it had almost 15,000 followers. Go to Twitter.com/FederalReserve to see what the Fed is up to. We clicked on a tweet and got a video called “What is the Fed?” The Twitter account is a pet project of Chairman Ben Bernanke. He’s aiming for more openness, a nice change from the previous chairman, Alan Greenspan, who once told “60 Minutes” that when he talked to Congress, “it sounded like I was answering the question but I was not.”
