With Christmas coming up this may well be my last post for a while as I get down to some serious not doing anything. But before I go, I thought I'd help out all financial twitter users by providing some ready financial twitter templates to save time and effort during this socially busy time. If used sensibly they should provide the appearance of superior financial twitterance whilst you are actually inebriated and trying to defuse family bickering.
Just cut and paste a line from below inserting where prompted - I hope they come in useful.
