Getting All A-Twitter on the Budget

It’s hard to deny that Twitter has become an important medium, having recently surpassed 300 million registered users. The White House has recognized its emergence by scheduling its first Twitter Townhall for Wednesday, July 6. The topic will be the economy and there likely will be, and should be, questions on the debt limit and national debt in general. You can submit your own question via Twitter using the #AskObama hashtag.
