President Barack Obama addressed the Twitterverse Wednesday, hosting his first-ever Twitter Town Hall alongside Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey. The hour-long affair allowed for Twitter users to ask the commander in chief a wide range of questions pertaining to the job market and economy, and let them tune in to the conversation via his live White House webcast. Black Enterprise staffers and followers weighed in amongst the rest of the global Twitterers with questions spanning from the debt ceiling and education to the housing market and alternative energy opportunities. A large portion of the questions (27%) derived from job market concerns. Here are a few tweets covering the topics at hand during yesterday’s address; see how Mr. President responded.
