Twitter has made its first hire in Washington, D.C. Adam Sharp, the executive producer of digital services at C-SPAN, will join the company Nov. 29.
Sharp previously served as deputy chief of staff for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.).
Sharp, whose Twitter handle is @sharpdc, appropriately announced the news on Twitter:
Privacy will be a major policy issue for Twitter. Lawmakers of both parties have said they will address the issue in the next session of Congress.
