Related entries: Business Issues, Corporate News, Economy, General, News

The past week has twittered its way through a lot of news. While some fear a China scam, others worry about a global GhostNet, or military M&A positioning. Most – but not all – also worry about the economy. Some – but not all – even had the decency to report good news. And then there is the holiday issue. A holiday does not have to be a week to be golden. Officially.

Our selection of top tweets from the past week are below. Some of the issues are also covered, in greater depth, in their own blog posts.
