That's the news

Job growth beats expectations in April

Warren Buffett on Fed, IBM, His First Tweet
I don't see the big deal.  I had a first tweet years ago, and nobody cared.
In an interview that aired on " Squawk Box " Friday, the Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A) chairman and CEO said, "Basically [the Fed] is buying the debt we're creating and to go beyond that is an awfully big number."
Yeah, it's a really super duper big number.  Now can I have a cookie?

Not surprisingly, he quickly attracted a big following. And as of Friday morning with only two tweets sent, he had over a quarter million followers.
Cuz, you know, he's probably gonna tweet about whatever his next investment will be, so that the people following him can get in first.

Okay, I admit it.  I'm following Warren.  In fact, I've been following since he only had one tweet, and a little over 5,000 followers.  Those were the days.  Yesterday.

And here I thought plastic was pretty much a regular ingredient in most processed food.
