Nicole Wong

Nicole Wong, Twitter’s former legal director of products, joined the White House in June as deputy U.S. chief technology officer, the White House announced in a statement.

Wong will work on Internet privacy and technology issues. She is joining the White House at a time when confidence in online privacy is low following the disclosure of the NSA’s PRISM surveillance program.

Previously, Wong worked as Google’s vice president and deputy counsel general. In that position, she helped decide whether or not to censor the results on the company’s search engine and on its YouTube video service. (end)
