The Obama administration has added another big name from the tech industry to its list of advisers as Twitter's CEO, Dick Costolo, has been named to a national security and telecommunications advisory committee, the Washington Post reports.
Costolo's selection is the latest sign of the administration's outreach to America's high-tech companies. Former chief executives of Google and AOL have also advised the White House on technology issues.
Earlier this spring, the administration was rumored to be considering nominating Google CEO Eric Schmidt as commerce secretary but on May 31 announced that it had instead chosen John Bryson, a former energy company executive, for the position.
