Colin Crowell, former top advisor to FCC chairman Julius Genachowski, is joining Twitter as head of global public policy.
Crowell appropriately tweeted the news Monday (https://twitter.com/#!/colin_crowell), saying he was looking forward to joining the company in mid-September.
Crowell was senior counselor to the chairman when he exited in May 2010 less than a year after joining the commission from a top telecom advisor post with Ed Markey (D-Mass.), former chair of the House Communications (then Telecommunications) Subcommittee.
He formed his own consulting firm, Crowell Strategies, last September.
