Twitter tattle: What the finance world is tweeting about

Top tweets from the past week show what is on advisers minds and causing lively debate.

With the auto-enrolment date nearing and a new DWP advertising campaign launched, pensions were on more than one mind this week.

@WannabeAdviser Just seen an Auto-Enrolment advertisement on TV, good to see it being publicised to the general public.

@PensionsMonkey With only 3 weeks until Auto enrolment starts. Government is still silent on state pension reform. Cold feet. Like a penguin.

@TheParaplanner Any recommendations for software to manage auto-enrolment compliance? #pensions

Five years on from the masses of people queueing up to withdraw their money from Northern Rock, advisers reflected on the state of the economy today.

@Brian_Dennehy 5 years ago today the panicky queues outside Northern Rock peaked...

@Brian_Dennehy ...the next day Northern Rock was flooded by money being paid back in - all those holidays, DIY jobs, new car purchases, suddenly cancelled.

@martin_dodd Property ‘standstill’ in five years since Northern Rock run – I think there’s another 5 years to go before a recovery of any sort.

Advisers tweeted their tributes to the two police officers killed in the line of duty.

@bristolifa My heart goes out to the families of the 2 WPCs killed in Manchester today. As an ex PC I understand the risks which are great and I am....

@bristolifa ... surprised that tragedies like this don’t happen more often. Much respect to the brave men and women who serve us every day.

@stettip How many more police officers are going to be shot & killed by the scumbags on our streets? RIP two brave ladies Nicola Hughes + Fiona Bone.
