Dow in Death Spiral, Obama Seeks Advice From Twitter

Uh Oh, White House Seeks Economic Advice From Twitter

Nicholas Carlson, Silicon Alley Insider:

Twitter cofounder and CEO Ev Williams is headed to the White House today.

The administration invited him to join a “young business leaders" summit to discuss the economic crises.  

As Ev himself puts it — in a Twitter message, of course — "[this] must mean they're really out of ideas."  

A reminder: With 6 million members and 700% plus growth, Twitter makes no money in the US. (It sells some ads in Japan).
