Tweeting about Credit Cards

Nancy Trejos

If there's one thing I've learned in my year and a half of covering personal finance, it's this: It's not easy getting people to talk about their finances.

Not so on Twitter, apparently. In this economy, people seem to have become more open with their feelings about money, particularly when it comes to credit cards. decided to monitor Twitter for 24 hours to see what people were saying about credit cards, then compiled the most interesting tweets.

Many were complaints like this one:"@nyoder: since when do i not get sent a new credit card before the old one expires? i actually had to call for one. don't you want my money?"

Others were jokes like this: @Noot54: @sargedunn1 My wife's credit card was stolen but the police advised me to take no further action -- the thief was spending less than she was.

And others were confessionals: @Maroonsista: I really wish I would've listened to my father over my mother and never gotten a credit card. Those things are addictive and put you in debt.
