Since we revamped and improved our personal finance site this spring, I've been twittering on a near-daily basis through @globemoney. The tweets give you instant updates on our personal finance stories, columns, and blogs, as well as other fun things I stumble across on the web. Last week I twittered about frugal fashion week, five must-haves for people looking to flip a house and tips for choosing the right kind of life insurance.

Twitter allows me to keep afloat on what is happening in the world of personal finance and provides me with another venue for communicating with some of our most dedicated readers. Through Twitter I found out about new financial literacy programs, reached out to fellow tweeters about their experiences with mortgage renewals and stumbled across interesting discussions on money-related subjects.

One of the benefits of social networks like Twitter is that they allow reporters and editors to emerge from the newsroom and reach out in a way that is more personal. Globe Investor also has a selection of investment, stock market and personal finance tweeters - all of whom communicate their pithy wisdom in 140 characters or less.

In addition to @globemoney, there is the main @globeinvestor headline news feed. Fans of David Berman's daily stock market updates can find him at @marketblog, while Andrew Willis's timely updates on developments on Bay Street come out through @streetwiseBlog. Investment reporter Steve Ladurantaye has taken a different approach with Twitter, combining personal with the professional updates on @ladurantaye. So if you want some snippets of baby rearing and rock and roll mixed in with your investment updates, he's your guy.
