Have Questions For Obama? YouTube's Got You Covered
Tuesday, January 26, 2010; 2:27 AM
On Wednesday, U.S. President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union speech, which will be broadcast live on YouTube's CitizenTube channel as well as on The White House's brand new iPhone app.
Google is stepping up its game, as it will also give YouTube users the opportunity to ask Obama some follow-up questions in video or text.
On Wednesday night at 9 p.m. ET, during the live broadcast of the State of the Union on Citizentube, YouTube will be opening up a special Moderator series for citizens to submit their questions.
Evidently, President Obama will not be answering those questions live: the days following the speech, users will be able to submit additional questions and vote on their favorites.
Next week, although Google still has to communicate the exact timing, the top-voted questions will be asked to the president in a YouTube interview from the White House, which will also be broadcast live on Citizentube.
