On July 1, SEC filings presented a gift to business tweeters everywhere: a prospectus for the first-ever Bitcoin ETF, to be launched by none other than Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss of Facebook fame.

In midmonth, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke testified before a congressional committee that the Fed planned to be flexible on tapering off its bond purchases. And by the end of the month, the Twitteratti were speculating on Bernanke’s replacement.

Meanwhile, PIMCO's Bill Gross talked Twinkies, and a few of ThinkAdvisor’s top influencers got into an exchange about how a Google Images copyright case went terribly wrong.
