The IRS is following you...on Twitter that is. Today the IRS announced that you can get all the IRS news you want by following @IRSnews on Twitter. Tax professionals on Twitter may also want to follow @IRStaxpros.
This is certainly a good sign that the IRS is now trying to use social media tools to inform the taxpaying public of news and developments in the tax law. However, I have to wonder how any one of us Twitter users will feel when we receive the email notification telling us that "The IRS is now following you."
