Financial Literacy Month on Twitter (#FLM)

In honor of Financial Literacy Month (April), we will be using the hashtag #FLM on financial literacy-related Twitter posts. The idea is to bring awareness to the need for financial literacy (and help us meet some other financially-minded people Twitterers too!) To participate, simply add the hashtag #FLM on any Twitter post you think relates to financial literacy. Here is a sample tweet:

MoneyManagement: Just had the pleasure of connecting with one of the members of the President’s Council on Financial Literacy! #FLM
