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.

As a nonprofit news organization, our future depends on listeners like you who believe in the power of public service journalism.
