Tweeting with the President: CHCI Interns Participate in First Ever White House Twitter Town Hall

Four CHCI Interns were randomly selected to attend the White House's first Twitter Town Hall held Wednesday, July 6. The discussion was moderated by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey. In 140 characters or less, people from around the country submitted questions on Twitter, an online miniature blog, about the economy and jobs. President Obama responded to the questions in real time.

The CHCI Interns in attendance were Dan Armenta, Narda Terrones, Angelica Garcia, and Amaury Munoz.

"The Town Hall was very interactive. It definitely illustrated how this administration is keeping up with the innovations of generation 'Y'. Overall it was really amazing to see an event like this first-hand. Meeting the President will always be a great moment in my life," said CHCI Intern Narda Terrones.

The purpose of the Twitter town hall meeting was to use social and mobile media to connect with Americans. According to a report by Mass Relevance, a monitoring platform, the session drew nearly 169,395 tweeted questions and comments. People were able to watch the town hall on TV or online.
