Mark Drapeau (one of Microsoft’s social media samurai) trashes Twitter’s hiring plans and sparks comments from O’Reilly Media Gov 2.0 correspondent Alex Howard and Twitter comms VP Sean Garrett, who Mark, a prolific tweeter, then ignored on Twitter proper before a passive blog comment response: Government 2.0 Movement Seemingly Passes By Twitter, Inc.
(Garrett, by the way, is one of three Twitter bloggers posting about innovative Twitter uses, many of them in the Gov 2.0 mold: Clever Twitter Accounts – Twitterers that make you say, “Now I get it!'”)
Howard follows up on the Drapeau blog comments debate: Why is Twitter hiring a government liaison? Thoughts from @SG and more. [#gov20]
Must. Be. Awesome!!! blogger Du4 offers up a point-by-point response to Tuesday’s Andrew P. Wilson suggestions post: Andrew Wilson’s Top 10 Requests of the Twitter Gov Liaison
Luke Fretwell names four folks he thinks would fit the position, and calls for more nominations: Tweeters Twitter should consider for its new government gig
Alan W. Silberberg offers a surprisingly Gov 1.0 argument for a beltway insider, including reference to Twitter’s investors (then expands on Twitter with arguments for awesome Gov 2.0 heroes Lovisa Williams and Noel Dickover): Gov 2.0 and #Twitter Finally Meet!
Steve Lunceford topped capped the day with part 1 of an interview with Garrett, and his own list of links: Interview provides new details on search for Twitter’s government liaison
And for those suggesting/joking about opening it up to nominations, been there, did the YouTube videos: http://bit.ly/TopGov
