Twitter PR Hiring Not Over

Not surprisingly, Twitter will continue to expand its PR team, says vice president of communications Sean Garrett, who joined the company as its first internal PR person this past March.

Garrett has staffed up recently, hiring Carolyn Penner from Google and Matt Graves from social music service imeem.

Now the company is looking for a government liaison in Washington, D.C. to lead up what it calls a “fledgling public policy department.” In addition, the company will also add two to three PR positions before the end of 2010, reports PRWeek.

Tim Dyson, CEO of Next Fifteen Communications, the holding company of Garrett’s previously employer, 463 Communications, recently told PRNewser that he believes Garrett’s job is “awfully challenging,” given his amount of resources in relation to Twitter’s growth and communications demands being put on the company.
