1. Reuters Business
Reuters Business ( @ReutersBiz ) tweeted out that even the ominous FOMC Minutes can't keep investor confidence down. Global and local data alike are outweighing the taper uncertainty.

BuzzFeed Biz ( @BuzzFeedBiz ) tweeted out this morning that the trifecta of companies that typically provided for young adolescents – Abercrombie (NYSE: ANF ), American Eagle (NYSE: AEO ) and Aeropostale (NYSE: ARO ) – all plummeted this morning. CEO blames economy, but maybe everyone is just over that phase…
HuffPostBiz ( @HuffPostBiz ) tweeted out the truth about employment. The extent of the economic recovery could be overstated.
