I’m not asking folks to say ‘Oh yeah I’m on Twitter and I have a clearance!” but what I am trying to find out is whether it’s true that being on Twitter will jeopardize one’s security clearance, as several people in a workshop I’m at today said was true. Or any social media group, for that matter, since I’m very involved in trying to get more people using these tools in the organization I work for, AFCEA International.
Tossed this question out on Twitter itself and got some interesting responses, including “Well, maybe we don’t want to answer your question because people don’t want to talk about their clearances on Twitter.” But it’s also true that there is a wonderful community from the Intelligence world on Twitter, and they are directly responsible for me finally understanding the power of Twitter.
So anyhow, links to any blog entries you’ve seen on the topic or any stories you can safely share would be helpful for me as I try to wrap my brain around how we get better engage our leaders in social media, because in turn I think that will help them discover new leadership.
