Twitter says it is looking for a "master in the art of Twitter" to be its "Tweeter in Chief" and help the social network portray itself on its own platform.

"You'll set the tone of who we are and how we act, and tell our unique story every single day. No big deal," according to a job listing posted this month. 

In addition to composing the tweets for @Twitter, which currently has more than 56 million followers, the Tweeter in Chief is responsible for setting the editorial direction and leading the company's team of community managers within its marketing and communications group.

As far as requirements, the company says the Tweeter in Chief must be "extremely plugged into Twitter culture, stan culture, and culture in general" and have a proven track record of leading the "voice/social copywriting for influential brands, with a particular emphasis on Twitter."

The company is pretty flexible about where the Tweeter in Chief may be located, listing the location as "San Francisco, New York or any office in the US."

Part of the job entails promoting Twitter's new features, like its recently introduced ability for users to retweet with GIFs. But more broadly, the role encompasses crafting or retweeting clever, timely observations about using Twitter and engaging with users.
