President Barack Obama will meet the tweeting masses — electronically — today, in the first ever Twitter Town Hall.Obama will take 140-character questions submitted with the #AskObama hashtag, and answer them at a live-streamed event at 2 p.m. this afternoon.
Twitter co-founder and Executive Chairman Jack Dorsey will moderate the discussion, with Twitter staff selecting the questions for Obama to answer.
Republicans have taken to the medium to press Obama on his economic record, with the Republican National Committee releasing — and tweeting — seven questions for the president.
Even the decidedly non-Republican AFL-CIO joined the fray, asking “Where are the jobs? #AskObama,” a question quickly re-tweeted by GOP lawmakers.
Check back at 2 p.m. for live coverage of the town hall.
