Obama to Add Tweeter to Motorcade

You're already on Twitter and Facebook too much anyway. Might as well get paid.


Organizing for America is looking for someone who can impart information in 140-characters or less. From The Hill

President Obama's political operation, Organizing for America, is hiring a "social networks manager" whose primary responsibilities will be maintaining the group's Twitter, Facebook and MySpace accounts.

OFA recently posted the job notice to its website, warning applicants that they should be "ready to work hard; this isn't a 9-5 sort of job."

The Obama campaign won plaudits for its use of social networking in 2008. Those interested in tweeting for the president can apply here.
