WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve isn’t known for its brevity. Now, it has no choice.
At least when it comes to the tweets it will issue through its official Twitter channel — @federalreserve — which it launched Wednesday.
Like other Twitter users, the Fed will have to limit its tweets to 140 characters. Just listing the official name of its policymaking panel, the Federal Open Market Committee, would consume roughly a quarter of that space.
