President Obama has picked Nicole Wong, Twitter's legal director, to be the White House's first chief privacy officer, CNET has learned.
Wong previously was a vice president and deputy general counsel at Google at its Mountain View headquarters, where she managed a team of lawyers that worked with the company's engineers to review products before they launched. The reviews included privacy, copyright, and removal requests, which earned her a nickname of "The Decider" -- as recounted in a 2008 New York Times Magazine article.
Neither Wong nor the White House immediately responded to a request for comment from CNET.
