President Obama will be conducting his first Twitter Townhall on Wednesday, July 6 at 2:00 pm, ET. The topic of this Twitter Townhall is the Economy and Jobs.

All questions for the President must be submitted in advance.
Don't tweet? Ask your questions here and we will tweet them for you.

  • Please keep your questions short and to the point. Twitter has a max character capacity of 140. It is possible to tweet longer questions, but the ones that are on point will get the most attention.

    Please keep the questions focused on the Townhall topic - jobs and the economy (which includes extensions of unemployment benefits).

    Keep your questions tactful! We are all angry about the way our politicians have ignored us, but questions containing insults, partisan slurs, etc. don't get answered, therefore we will not tweet them. Please respect the fact that we are using our Twitter accounts to do this for you.

    Off topic comments in this thread will be deleted. This is for the Townhall event only.


Please, ASK AWAY!!


Here are some examples of questions being tweeted now:

#AskObama Are U going to stand your ground GOP always calling your bluff,? What about those tax breaks that don't create #JOBS?

#AskObama EUC08 with #HR 589 needs to b included in debt ceiling talks. Will you stand up and demand our lifeline stay in place? #SOS #99er

#AskObama The #99ers are millions, growing & drowning. What is your plan? This is far more of a crisis than the debt. Save EUC08 #HR589

Just ask your question and we will put it in the proper format with the hashtags!

@Askobama If US is richest country in world, how come we can no longer afford 2 live here - Will U push 4 & support #HR589 for the #99ers

#Askobama Jobs will not be created overnight - why have you abandoned millions of unemployed #99ers. They should be your 1st priority.

Thanks for doing this - I hopefully will be at work and Won't be able to participate so here are my questions. I have already twitted some questions but feel we need an on-slaught of questions about the 99ers during the actual event.

Mr. President, what is your plan to help small business keep their doors open with no line of credit to help them?

Mr. President, can you find funds to give tax breaks and incentives to business so that they can train new workers for the missing skills we hear so much about to provide jobs?

Mr. President, do you believe there is going to come a time when this great Country sees full employment again, and the unemployed become tax payers again in order to help us all thrive?

Mr. President, we must keep our middle class, and we have to find a way to provide for those that are suffering. We cannot turn our Country into one of class wars. Thank you for your commitment to America.

If anyone is looking for more questions to ask, these are a few that I asked and are being RT'd and MT'd quite a bit.

#AskObama Many of us feel helpless as we watch the GOP in congress destroy middle class, #jobs, unions etc.What can we do to stop it? #99ers

#AskObama How do you & dem congress plan to deal with the unacceptable behavior of the GOP?They're severely damaging our nation. #SOS #jobs

#AskObama How do you plan to address long term #unemployment in the current political climate? #99ers need help asap! need #jobs & #HR589

#AskObama Our infrastructure is crumbling, there r millions out of work. Dont you think it would be wise to repair? It would create #jobs

#AskObama Can u create #jobs, raise the debt ceiling & add relief for #99ers with executive order?How can u get this done w/GOP blocking?

Thats just a few that seem to have picked up some interest by other tweeters. If we ask the same questions multiple times they have a better chance at being answered. Ive been RT others tweets on this subject as well.

Everyone is doing a great job!!! Keep'em coming!

As you can see we are more than willing to ask questions for you if you dont tweet. Keep posting them, there can never be too many!!

#AskObama We need "Candidate Obama" back to stand up to the #GOP and help the #unemployed and #99ers until they stop blocking job creation!
#AskObama Why wasn't CETA, CCC, WPA mentioned 3 years ago? There would be no #99ers and #EUC08, with 14 weeks to Tier 1 #HR589 #99ers #SOS
#AskObama Talk of job creation too late! #99ers need help now! Extend EUC08 & 14 weeks added to Tier 1 #HR589 Can't wait for "job creation"

The other bit of info to be aware of is that Twitter will be tracking what is trending before and during the town hall. With that it mind it pays to write questions that use certain words. If you’re a 99er, you may want to use “99er,” “unemployment,” “HR589,” “jobs,” and so on. If a certain topic is trending it is likely that a question on that subject will be selected. Obviously thousands of questions are rolling through Twitter… so the more questions sent in on unemployment better the chances and unemployment question will be asked. Flood the box?

And one last thing: The President will not answer in 140 characters. He will answer questions from Twitter users but will do so by spoken word. That matters because this President tends to give looooooong answers at press conferences. The longer his answers, the fewer questions will get in. President Obama will answer via microphone but will not be tweeting or typing online. The event will take place in the East Room at 2PM EST.

Want to Join Obama's Twitter Townhall?  Don't Tweet?  Ask here - we will tweet for you! Empty HIRE Act of 2010

Post by Unjobbed on Tue Jul 05, 2011 11:26 pm

Will someone please post (tweet) this for me?:

"#AskObama Why was the HIRE Act allowed to expire on 12/31 without an equal or better replacement to stimulate hiring of the unemployed?"

Also, I read through the #AskObama stream on Twitter and I understand the frustrations of my fellow unemployed, but am worried that some of them are shooting themselves in the foot because they are tweeting very inflammatory and political things from their twitter accounts with their own real names on it. Employers look at this stuff!! Be careful of what you put out on the internet! Employers don't want to hire angry people who rant at the government, even if what is written is 200% justified (which, of course, when it comes to our common plight, it most definitely is). Remember the hiring bias that is out there. I don't want to anyone lose a job opportunity over this.

Thanks for the reminder regarding tweeting political rants. People don't realize their name is attached most of the time. We set rules for this and asked members to be respectful when asking questions and will not tweet anything in poor taste. Why do that - it won't get answered!
