Oh Crap. The Kremlin Is Joining Facebook.

Is this better or worse than your parents joining facebook?

So according to the Moscow Times, the Communications and Press Ministry of Russia is looking for a company to help Russian bureacrats promote state interests on Facebook, Twitter, and other Russian networking sites (my guess is vkontakte.ru). I cannot wait to follow these tweets. Please please please, Lavrov, start tweeting!

Not sketchy or sexy enough for you? In addition to helping Medvezhonok tweet "OMG. Putin is like so hot!", the winning tech company must also come up with ways to help bureacrats "to sift through discussion topics" (AKA monitor conversations). If only the Soviets had social networking. They wouldn't have had to bug so many phones.
