By Mike McPhate

Social networking site Twitter has posted its first D.C.-based job opening, a liaison with government officials and political groups.

The posting seeks a worker who can burrow into the top levels of D.C.'s power elite and evangelize on the benefits of the online tool.

From the job post:

Twitter is looking for an experienced, entrepreneurial person to make Twitter better for policymakers, political organizations and government officials and agencies. You'll be our first D.C. -based employee and the closest point of contact with a variety of important people and organizations looking to get the most out of Twitter on both strategic and highly tactical levels. You'll help Twitter understand what we can do to better serve candidates and policymakers across party and geographical lines. You'll support policymakers use of Twitter to help them communicate and interact with their constituents and the world. You'll work with nearly every group at the company and at every level to pursue your vision for how Twitter ought to be. You'll help set the culture and approach of a fledgling public policy department and be an important part of our very small company.
