I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time on Twitter. I get all my news on there, as well as the occasional witty repartee. (You can see my possibly clever musings @mcjamdonald.) And while we could spend all day surfing the site for updates on Donald Trump or points of interest from Justin Bieber, it’s much better to use the tool for good.
Below are personal finance experts that you should be following, so your browsing time turns into learning time. Savings on the brain is less money down the drain, after all!
