twitterIf you like to tweet and and you are into social media, you might want to apply for a job as President Barack Obama's personal tweeter.

According to a mass email sent to a listserv by Mia Cambronero, the president's current social networks manager, the job entails maintaining and updating Obama's personal accounts on various social media Web sites such as Facebook and MySpace. Cambronero will be stepping down from this position, and the White House is anxious to find a replacement.

The Barack Obama Web site has an online application for the position outlining the qualities they are seeking in this social media guru. Among the required qualifications: "Ability to work under deadline pressure; ability to manage multiple complex projects; candidates must be willing to relocate to Washington, D.C." Furthermore, the social networks manager will work with all key personnel in the New Media Department with the main focus being: "to execute grassroots campaigns to advance the president's agenda for change."


The President's Take On Social Media

In a former blog posting by Sky Canaves from The Wall Street Journal, Obama was asked about his thoughts on China blocking the use of Twitter and Facebook, and the President admitted that "he sometimes wishes information wasn't so free. But ultimately it makes him a better leader and makes democracy stronger."

With that being said, Obama clearly wants to promote the free exchange of information, even if he is only approving it and not actually typing it himself on his status updates.


Do You Have The Tweet Stuff?

If you are seeking to break out of the 9-to-5 mold, and you possess excellent knowledge about all social media sites and what they have to offer, then maybe you should set your own sights on securing a job as the personal tweeter for the commander-in-chief. At the very least, it would be the most awesome status update of all time for your own Facebook page -- assuming you are allowed to disclose that information.

I agree with you Eregler. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is just a shame that some people in America find that freedom intolerable when it comes to allowing anyone with a different opinion to speak it. I dont even care that these idiots that are bashing Judy have their own opinions, but I do wish that they were adult and educated enough to just speak their opinion without trying to purposely insult and degrade another human being who is just trying to exercise their right as an American with free speach.

I would love the be a part of this administration. President Obama promised us change and he is working on making our system better not the same ole same ole. It takes time to make those changes. Big business has been running this country for years, still is. We need to change policies on these former employees of the federal government that go on to be lobbyists and RUIN our country.

Most of the above writers sound like 2nd and 3rd graders calling someone derogatory names without any substance! Republicans are good at that and remain to be as educated as 3rd graders... When one wants to make an allegation, they certainly should substantiate their accusation with facts. Unfortunately, Republicans tend to make comments more often than report the facts and worse is they believe what other Republicans say! That in itself tells you a lot about them as a whole.

RAVEN: Surely you are aware that The Shrub could veto anything placed on his desk that he did not agree with.

Republicans Rubber Stamped everything Bush asked for and he, of course, signed it.
