What public event worth its salt doesn't have Twitter users weighing in?

Well, it's not the Grammys, but  the Twitterverse was heating up Wednesday afternoon when Finance Minister Ken Krawetz introduced his 2012-13 budget.

Some live-tweeted the speech, others commented on what they liked and didn't like.

"Balance? I'll believe it when I see it," one user of the social network said.
