Yes, it’s true.¬† A press release went out yesterday with this announcement, and for better or worse¬† Rhode Island is showing us the money:

So, which is it: better or worse?

General Treasurer Frank T. Caprio announced today that the Office of the Rhode Island General Treasurer will now be using Twitter to broadcast the State’s daily cash flow on a real-time, daily basis.

Cash flow is a measure of Rhode Island’s financial health. Each day’s publication or “tweet” will highlight the gross revenues and expenditures of the General Fund. “In layman’s terms, what money the state takes in and what money is paid out,” said Caprio.
