National Economic Council Deputy Director To Hold Twitter Office Hours, Will Answer Questions From Users

Brian Deese, the deputy director of the National Economic Council, will answer questions from Twitter users during an Office Hours session on the social network Tuesday.

On Monday, President Barack Obama began a new campaign to urge Congress to pass the American Jobs Act in an effort to help unemployed Americans get back to work. From 4 p.m. EDT, Deese will be using the @WHLive to answer questions about the American Jobs Act and any other topics you might wish to ask him about.

The Office Hours session follows on from several social media-related events carried out by the White House in recent months. Obama posted his first signed tweet during a Twitter Townhall, where he answered questions that were sent to him by users of the social network. The White House has played host to several Tweetups, including a meeting with Press Secretary Jay Carney and the chance to be at the state arrival ceremony for President Lee Myung-bak of the Republic of Korea. Meanwhile, the person responsible for running the @WhiteHouse Twitter account decided to have a little fun by Rickrolling a follower in July.

You can start asking Deese your questions now using the #WHChat hashtag. You’ll be able to view Deese’s answers by following the @WHLive account, but if you miss the live session, the full list of Deese’s responses will be posted on the White House website.
