FCW Contest: Rewrite your job description as a Tweet

Many people in the federal IT community have job titles that exceed the 140 character-limit of Twitter (spaces included) and job descriptions that are incomprehensible to the outside world. Which makes this contest twice the fun.

How would you describe your job — to a friend, perhaps, or to a child — in the form of a Tweet?

The goal is to be informative but concise, with extra points (lots of 'em) given for humor.

Post your entry/entries as a comment to this page. The winner will be announced next month on FCW.com and in Federal Computer Week.

For inspiration, check out the recent Washington Post article about a contest in which participants had to summarize the plot of an opera in 140 characters. Here was the winning entry:

"There was a young lady called Fricka Who ... who ... *snore* 'Wake up — it's over.' It's good, I just wish it were quicka."
