Don't you hate it when you're planning to spend $47,000 for a four-night hotel stay in Washington D.C., but you're afraid you'll be so busy with luxury that you'll forget to live-tweet the experience?
To honor the luxurious experience of being one of the roughly 750,000 people who'll watch President Obama get sworn in for his second term, the Madison Hotel now offers a "Inaugural Town and Country" package. That includes, in addition to a $5,000 gift certificate for clothes, the exclusive services of a dedicated "social media butler."
Digital marketer Victoria Devine will
"chronicle your Inaugural experience so your friends and family can follow your adventures on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest." It adds that she will "post on all of your accounts so you don’t have to fumble for your phone to catch that perfect Facebook profile picture!"
Devine said that though she's never butlered before, she does have experience live-tweeting conferences for previous clients.
Included in the $47,000 package, which is designed for two includes:
Four night stay in one of The Madison’s Presidential Suites
Dedicated Social Media Butler, Anchor Media’s Victoria Devine to chronicle your Inaugural experience so your friends and family can follow your adventures on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

Since most of us couldn't possibly afford the above mentioned tour, let us take away a more valuable idea from this story; become a social media butler! If you are fluent in the ways of social media, and have a personality designed to enhance a special experience instead of detract from it, this might be a wonderful career for you! (And somebody that I might hire someday)
