As noted in the inaugural edition on Sept. 15, I gather tax info and comments from the popular social networking program Twitter. Then on the third Tuesday of each month, the Tweets become a blog post here at Don't Mess With Taxes.
If you tweet taxes, all you have to do is keep doing what you're doing. Based on how much time I waste spend networking on the site, I should run across your 140 character (or less) tax bon mots.
To make sure I do, you can "at" me; that is, include my Twitter ID @taxtweet in your Tweet, or if we follow each other on Twitter, you can send it to me via direct message there.
OK, enough already with the preliminaries. Let's get to Tax Twitter Tuesday!

@michellegolden Yup! Same reason "alternative" farmers make sure they pay their taxes too. We can prob thank Al Capone for these lessons.
Now back to the tax straight and narrow.
Pardon me for the shameless plug via one of our Tax Twitter Tuesday contributors:

The tax pros and professionalism debate is still raging on Twitter, as evidenced by a couple of my Tweeple:

And while I try to spread the Tax Twitter Tuesday love around, as you noticed earlier, I made an exception. Here's another one.
I just gotta include a repeat offender Tweeter since he expresses a sentiment everyone's shared at some point:
@bruce_taxguy Damn the IRS sometimes. Argh!
We'll be back here on Nov. 17 with a whole lot of Twitter tax tidbits for which we all can be thankful. See you then -- and in between, too, I hope! -- here at the ol' blog and on Twitter.
