In case you haven't heard, President Obama will hold a Twitter Town Hall today at 2 p.m. EST. It is nice to see the President modeling the use of social media tools to show how Twitter can be used as a tool to promote conversation.
Here is a portion of the announcement from The White House Blog:
The White House is all a-Twitter about an exciting event that's happening on Wednesday, July 6th at 2pm ET, President Obama will answer your questions in the first ever Twitter Town Hall at the White House, and you're invited. Starting today, you can tweet your questions about jobs and the economy using the hashtag#AskObama and follow @townhall for the latest updates. Then, come back to watch the President respond to your questions in a live event moderated by Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder and Executive Chairman.
