SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) US President Barack Obama named Twitter's chief and a high-ranking Microsoft executive among a handful of technology veterans to be appointed as telecommunications security advisors.
"I am proud to appoint such impressive men and women to these important roles, and I am grateful they have agreed to lend their considerable talents to this administration," Obama said in a White House press release available online Friday.
"I look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead," he continued in reference to those he picked to join his National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee.
The list of appointees included Twitter chief executive Dick Costolo; Microsoft vice president of trustworthy computing Scott Charney; McAfee computer security company president David DeWalt, and Lisa Hook, head of global communications technology firm Neustar.
The final appointee to the committee was Jamie Dos Santos, chief of the group that handles federal government information technology at Terremark Worldwide.

Not liking the sound of that.
Another Obama crony finds a government job.
This is like appointing a national petroleum advisory council consisting of the presidents of Halliburton, Chevron, Exxon, etc.
Putting professional snoops and hackers on his partisan payroll.

Look at it this way: maybe all Obummer’s speeches will now be limited to 140 characters.
Leak czars, or “plumbers” back in Dick Nixon’s day.
These guys will end up making the Chinese firewall look like an open and free exchange of information.

Well, at least they'll be 140 characters or less.
Wonder how much we’re going to pay for that?
“Not liking the sound of that.”
No. It sounds too much like getting the technical people needed to take control of the ‘net.
