To financial advisory firms: A list of words to avoid on Twitter

From the good people at Putnam Investments, a list of words not to use on Twitter lest you — and your company — come under unwanted regulatory scrutiny.

We’re talking specifically financial advisory firms on social media here, but you never know — a word to the wise and all that.

Stay away from saying things like “innacurate” or “incomplete.” “Loophole” is bad. Also, “circumvent” and “overcharge.”

So now you know.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
