President Obama Hosts Twitter Town Hall: Watch Live Video
The president is answering questions submitted by Twitter users.
President Obama is holding his first Twitter town hall. Technically, though, he will not be tweeting. Rather, he’ll field questions on Twitter and then answer them with a microphone. “He's just answering the questions. He's not typing and tweeting," White House spokesman Jay Carney explained. Still the White House is treating this as a novel new outreach, even inviting 140 followers from the White House Twitter feed—one for each character you’re allowed in a tweet—to attend in person. Twitter users with questions for Obama should use the hashtag #AskObama.
