Talking to investors through Twitter
October 28, 2013
Since July 2010, Vanguard has been "tweeting" to our followers under the handle @Vanguard_Group. And since June 2011, we've also been tweeting to financial advisors under @Vanguard_FA. In March 2014, we started tweeting to institutional investors under @Vanguard_Instl.
Twitter's 140-character limit hasn't stopped us from sharing news and views with a diverse audience, including clients, finance bloggers, traditional media, advisors, and like-minded investors. We began using Twitter to educate our followers to be better investors; by monitoring questions and comments, we've been able to increase our understanding of investors' needs and wants.

For your own security, we ask that you not include personal or account information in any tweets you send our way. However, we see Twitter as an innovative way to communicate with our clients and we're eager to connect with you.
Other important information:

- Any opinions expressed by our Twitter followers are those of the persons submitting the comments and don't necessarily represent the views of Vanguard or its management.
- All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of money you invest.
- Vanguard ETF Shares can be bought and sold only through a broker (who may charge a commission) and cannot be redeemed with the issuing fund. The market price of Vanguard ETF Shares may be more or less than net asset value.
- Vanguard Marketing Corporation is the distributor of the Vanguard funds.
- Visit vanguard.com to obtain a Vanguard ETF or fund prospectus, which contains investment objecties, risks, charges, expenses, and other information; read and consider it carefully before investing.
- ETFs are not mutual funds and maybe redeemed at a price that is more or less than net asset value.
- Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.
- Investments in bonds are subject to interest rate, credit, and inflation risk.
- An investment in a money market is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in such a fund.
