Twitter makes for better commodities trading
This final note today. Another in our continuing series of me getting my head around how Twitter can actually be useful sometimes. I saw an interesting item on Forbes.com today. Commodities traders in the Midwest — folks who trade grain, mostly — have started following farmers’ Twitter feeds. They apparently get early tips on crop condition, weather, all that stuff that helps ’em make money. Kinda cool, really.
