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

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.
