Bill Clinton bans Twitter, Facebook and live-blog coverage for upcoming speech

Bill Clinton has called for a ban on the use of Twitter, Facebook updates and any live blogging during his keynote at the Dreamforce Cloud Computing conference in San Francisco next month.

Maybe Al Gore, who is a member of Apple’s board of directors and possibly more tech-friendly, could get the 42nd president of the United States to embrace a bit of social media and blog coverage of his speech?

Tech blog ReadWriteWeb said it was sent this memo from Outcast, a public relations firm, regarding Clinton’s speech at the conference, sponsored by Salesforce.com:

“PLEASE NOTE: President Clinton’s representatives have mandated that there be absolutely no reporting during his session.

That includes live blogging, Tweeting, Facebook posting or use of any other social media.

We understand the inconvenience this may present, but greatly appreciate your compliance. Thank you.”
