No need to focus on Jack Lew’s qualifications.
What Twitter users really want to know is whether this curly, childlike scrawl could end up on our cash. The horror!

I don't want the new secretary of the treasury Jack Lew's signature on my money. Looks loopy!—

Meanwhile, the Jack Lew signature? There’s an app for that.
It had to happen: “Secretary Lew” joins Twitter.
