You might not think about the GAO having a Twitter account. But it does and this month, it has started including one factoid a day, extracted from the voluminous information it compiles every year (#JustFacts). This article in the Washington Post gives the rationale for the move. Among the nuggets tweeted so far: Generic drugs make up 89% of prescriptions filled in the U.S. and 15% of the nearly 215,000 people convicted of federal crimes between 2014 and 2016 were ordered to pay restitution to their victims. Interesting stuff!
