OMB's press shop joins Twitter

The Office of Management and Budget’s communications office has joined the Twitterverse with the handle @OMBPress. Members of Congress, among others, welcomed the July 19 announcement.

Ken Baer, senior adviser and associate director for communications and strategic planning at OMB, said the agency hopes to use the social media outlet to “bring attention both to the important budget and fiscal issues before the country and to the full range of initiatives that OMB is involved with.”

Baer's challenge is now boiling those complex issues down to 140 characters or less.
