New Media Strategies is not getting its social media marketing contract with Chrysler renewed after one of its “strategists” dropped a (kinda hilarious) f-bomb on the automaker’s Twitter account — apparently the now-terminated employee thought he/she was writing on his/her personal account.

Soon to be former Google CEO Eric Schmidt might have a new job offer from a surprising place — apparently he’s on President Barack Obama’s short list for Secretary of the Treasury.
