Technology: Twitter guru joins Wag Ed

Waggener Edstrom has snapped up the man behind the much-hyped Twitter feed TheMediaIsDying.

The tech agency has hired Paul Armstrong as a senior digital consultant on its EMEA digital team. At the same time, Ged Carroll, Wag Ed's EMEA lead consultant of digital strategies, is understood to be leaving.

Armstrong most recently worked as manager of consumer corporate communications at MySpace in Los Angeles. His Twitter feed, which announces staff changes across the media, has almost 16,000 followers. Armstrong is looking to start a Europe-focused version.

Carroll confirmed he was leaving but said he could not yet disclose his next move.
