“With a heavy heart, I’d like to share that after nearly three years with @GovernorOMalley, I’ve accepted a new position @TheDemocrats,” Pagonis said in a tweet.

Pagonis got O’Malley on Twitter during the 2010 campaign. He now has more than 38,000 followers.

As a member of the governor’s office, Pagonis has managed a variety of social media projects for O’Malley, including a “Tweetup” last year, at which O’Malley met with Marylanders who had signed up to attend via Twitter.
