Wexler most recently worked as the flack for Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), and also held posts in other House and Senate offices and committees.

Twitter announced on Friday it would also step up its political involvement, hiring its first in-house lobbyist and forming a political action committee called Twitter#PAC.
