What Does Twitter Have to Say About the Energy Industry?

As part of our "Where the Money Is" podcast, Fool energy and materials analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman like to take a look at industry "tweets" and discuss the broader themes around them.

This week, they examine tweets about our current Secretary of Energy, Ernest Moniz. They also examine the ongoing situation with BP plc and its decision to take its litigation case to the Supreme Court. Finally, Joel is able to talk about his favorite football team and its recent field trip to the Nation's capital.
