Twitterer-In-Chief Obama Uses Hashtag Chat To Address Fiscal Cliff

Twitter really IS taking over the world.

First the U.S. Presidential election is played out on Twitter and now we see Obama using Twitter regularly to interact with constituents.

What’s next? The Pope joining Twitter? (Yes, we know that already happened.)

Twitter seems to have helped Obama win the election and now he’s hoping it will help him get Americans fired up about the impending Fiscal Cliff crisis.

The Twitterer-in-Chief took to Twitter today to spread awareness of the issues involved and to answer constituents’ questions.  He didn’t use his @BarackObama Twitter though, he was fielding questions from the @WhiteHouse Twitter, signing his tweets (as usual) with “bo.”

Did you follow the conversation? If you were watching the #My2k hashtag you may have had a little difficulty as the hashtag was taken over at times by those critical of President Obama in every way.

What do you think of Obama using Twitter to push his agenda. Smart politics or too much?
