Yes, really.

From Zero Hedge:

Real Time:!/search/realtime/%40federalreserve

That link doesn't look like it posted right but you can copy the text and it should do the job or just go to Twitter and search for @FederalReserve.

Needless to say, they're getting quite a few less than positive tweets thrown their way.
Banker jokes, End the Fed, telling them to go perform intercourse with themselves and so on. As the night has gone by, there are more coming from overseas as well.

Anyway, it's a somewhat entertaining way to pass some time or join the frivolities if you want.

And what, pray tell, would the federal reserve need to tweet that is of any importance to anyone? Bernanke's lunch selection?

Captivating stuff, I guarantee you. There's a welcome tweet, a few about Bernanke bleating and one about a report.

I would laugh like crazy if he got drunk one night and tweeted something like #Time to fire up the copter, Benny's gotta ride!

Everyone should spam their page with how they're destroying the world with credible links to back it up.

Thanks for the heads up. Even though I don't have a tweeter account I still enjoyed reading some of the remarks.

Here is the best one. I couldn't stop laughing

@FederalReserve I want my kid to be just like ben bernanke! Ben, how often did your parents deprive you of oxygen and for how long?

The Associated Press reports that the Federal Reserve has strapped on its social media wings to be able to better communicate what it is doing to the general public. The corporation recently unveiled its official Twitter channel, @federalreserve. While not necessarily amusing or philosophically informative, Federal Reserve tweets will no doubt serve to educate the public as to what's happening with interest rates, currency and other internal workings of the organization.
