Twitter’s hired a new head of public policy, PaidContent reports.
Colin Crowell, who has more than 20 years’ experience working on telecommunications issues, will start in mid-September, according to his Twitter.
Twitter is not the first social network to get involved in government, of course: Facebook has had policy advisors and lobbyists since at least 2009, and made headlines earlier this year when it announced it was hiring international policy directors.
And this is not Twitter’s first foray into Washington: Crowell joins Adam Sharp, who was hired last November to serve as government liaison.
