Tweets from Josh Brown, Suzanne Barlyn, Michael Kitces and more.

A 70-year-old man put on sunglasses, and the Twitter crowd went wild.

That man, of course, was PIMCO leader Bill Gross, speaking at the Morningstar Investment Conference in Chicago and propelling the gathering’s hashtag, #MICUS, into the Trending Topics list — a rarity for a wonky financial confab.

Meanwhile, Team U.S.A. advanced in the World Cup. U.S. Soccer helpfully provided a get-out-of-work note for fans who wanted to watch the U.S. vs. Germany game, while those who weren’t so lucky (or so gutsy) followed the play-by-play on Twitter.

Along the way, money coach Michal Bodi had words of advice for market timers, Morningstar speaker Clifford Asness coined a hashtag for politicized, outrage-mongering journalists, and Reuters reporter Suzanne Barlyn had some frustrating issues with Google search.
