A novel approach to Twitter, courtesy of the staff of Rhode Island senator Sheldon Whitehouse.

Whitehouse's communications director, Seth Larson, deputy press secretary, Richard Pezzillo, and new media director (!), Catherine Algeri, have disclaimers in their Twitter profiles that declare their posts — on public, unprotected accounts — to be off the record.

Shortly after Tech President wrote about the odd policy, the Whitehouse staffers removed the disclaimer from their profiles. Now we can finally tell the world that the "President's jobs plan includes a version of @SenWhitehouse's Job Creation Tax Credit Act"!

The Post Should Be Considered Off the Record
