A new—and anonymous—Twitter personality run by a Big Law associate is taking on the big-spending ways some of his colleagues know all too well. The account, @fine_freedom, espouses a personal wealth lifestyle known as FIRE, which stands for “financial independence, retire early.” The subculture is all about saving money in the extreme as a means to becoming free from having to work for money.

The person behind the Twitter account shares personal tips on how to reach financial independence and overheard jewels from around the office. He blogs about his financial journey in revealing detail, including sharing his net worth in a recent post. He also speaks directly to his peers: “As you should be reminded, we make A TON OF MONEY, so let’s not waste it!” (The going rate for a fresh-off-the-bar-exam Big Law associate these days is $190,000, plus bonus(es).)
