Twitter is looking to hire their first DC-based employee to act as a liason between Twitter and the government and political organizations.

Since this ad is way over 140 characters in length, it looks as if they’ve already sold out to the government:

null

How would entrepreneurial or trail-blazing experience help you deal with the government? Seems like that would be more of a hinderance.

Nancy Pelosi starts using Twitter mere days ago, and now this? I’m getting the feeling that taxpayers are hiring Nancy a Twitter assistant.

The broader implications of Twitter climbing into bed with the government may mean, if anything, that the revolution will not be Tweeted.
