DOD's social media chief signs out

Defense Department social media head Price Floyd announced his departure from DOD in characteristic fashion: He tweeted the news today to his 3,057 followers on Twitter.

“Tomorrow is my last day at DOD,” Floyd tweeted. “Still working out the details of my next full-time job, but in the interim will teach a public diplomacy course at George Washington University and help out at Center for New American Security.”

Floyd joined DOD as principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for public affairs in August 2009. In that role, he was a fixture on Twitter, where he often encouraged discussion of public policy and DOD's use of Web 2.0 technologies.
