#AskObama: Where Twitter's Town Hall Left Us Hanging

On June 30, 2011 the official White House Twitter account announced a Twitter Town Hall with President Obama where questions source from the Twittersphere would be answered during a live webcast.  The Town Hall, which took place on July 6, 2011, was an exciting glimpse into the future of how politicians interact with their constituents.  And, of course, it was a momentously validating day for the power of Twitter as a communication platform.

Since the event was essentially a very large scale Twitter question answering session (something we know a little bit about), we couldn't help but crunch some numbers on the first ever Twitter Town Hall.  Here is our overview of what was asked, what the President answered and what topics didn't make the cut.

Great infographic! I really felt like the American people were left hanging so I enjoyed the title. I shared some statistics and what I thought of the Town Hall on my blog post: http://www.socialstrategy1.com/2011/07/07/obama%E2%80%99s-townhall-numbers/
I hope we can all gain from this example.
