President Barack Obama only recently started sending his own tweets from his Twitter account, and now the White House announced that he will be conducting the first-ever presidential Twitter Town Hall on Wednesday.
Obama will be answering questions about the economy and jobs submitted by Twitter users with the hashtag #AskObama. Twitter co-founder and executive chairman Jack Dorsey will moderate the conversation.
The town hall will start at 2 p.m. in the East Room.
Last week, Obama’s Twitter account changed hands — it will now be updated by his reelection staff. Tweets from Obama on that account will be signed “-BO.”
Obama sent out his first message through his @BarackObama Twitter account to celebrate Father’s Day.
