Twitter is an excellent way of keeping up to date with current economic affairs and web content relevant to your course. You should all be following @brentwood_econ (you can do this via the blog homepage). In addition, it may be worth creating a Twitter list devoted to economics – that way relevant tweets won’t get lost in your personal feed.
Here are a few others worth following….
