A Professional Twitter Writer Emerges

“One of the scariest jobs ever is tweeting for an elected official,” Amanda Alampi wrote yesterday on The Atlantic’s website.

The line appeared in her short essay, under the simple heading:  “@ComptrollerNYC, @JohnCLiu.”

A spokesman for Liu emailed me to explain:

“Amanda was our summer associate last year and with her strong background in Social Media, she assisted the press office to  amplify the Comptroller’s message through that medium.”
