On location at President Obama’s Twitter town hall (user poll)

The Post’s Cecilia Kang and Mark Luckie were on location at The White House covering the President’s Twitter town hall Wednesday. They tweeted throughout the event, setting the scene and logging major developments as they happened.

The president’s town hall featured questions, via Twitter, from individuals using the #AskObama hashtag, and was advertised as focusing on “jobs and the economy.” The town hall was also granted its own username, @townhall, for those interested in receiving updates from the organizers.

The Post’s Chris Cillizza live-blogged the event, culling tweeted questions as the president fielded them.
