GSA's Bev Godwin discusses 'face-tweeting'

At the Market Connections social media conference on July 27, Bev Godwin, director of new media and citizen engagement for the General Services Administration, used a new term—“face-tweeting”—to describe the action of publishing a Facebook message while simultaneously tweeting a shortened version of the message on Twitter. She said the term was used while she was recently detailed to the White House to describe a common practice by staffers there.

Also, Godwin told the conference group she wanted to clear up any misconceptions about who is doing the tweeting from the White House’s Twitter account:

“The president is not the one doing the tweeting,” Godwin said.
