White House schedules Tweetup during SOTU


President Barack Obama is inviting active White House followers on Twitter for a high-profile viewing and tweeting session during the State of the Union speech on Jan. 24.

White House officials have issued an invitation for interested and active followers of the @WhiteHouse Twitter account to register and apply for a chance to participate in the “Tweetup” event. Deadline for registration at WH.gov/tweetup is 11:59 pm on Jan. 17.

Participants will be admitted to the White House to watch the president’s speech live, while also tweeting about the speech on their personal Twitter accounts, and to listen to a panel discussion by White House officials after the speech.

Previous White House Tweetups have been held for events including a Twitter Town Hall, a reception for First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative and a reception for the Republic of Korea. NASA also has sponsored a number of Tweetups for its launches.
