Jennifer Palmieri, President Obama’s communications director, just joined Twitter as an official White House employee.
She's tweeted twice, so far.
Hello Twitter! With so many of my colleagues tweeting, I couldn't miss out on the fun. Follow along for the latest from the @WhiteHouse.— Jennifer Palmieri (@JPalm44) March 19, 2014
White House press secretary Jay Carney announced Palmieri's new Twitter account during Wednesday's press briefing and urged reporters to follow her @JPalm44.
Palmieri joined the White House in December 2011.
It's hard to imagine that, in this day and age, a communications director would not be proficient at Twitter, especially one working in an administration that claims to be high-tech.
