O’Malley’s social media coordinator departing for DNC job

The aide who launched Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) into the Twitterverse is leaving for the Democratic National Committee.

Zoe Pagonis, O’Malley’s director of digital strategy, announced Thursday that she has accepted a job as the DNC’s digital content manger. In the new gig, Pagonis said she will be managing the committee’s social media accounts, including those onTwitter and Facebook. She’ll also be the DNC’s lead blogger and editor.

“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.
