President Barack Obama gave his last State of the Union address before the 2012 presidential election last night. The whole world watch as he introduced his goals for the remainder of his first term in the White House.
But first, here's some information about how to continue the State of the Union fun:
How can I follow along with the ongoing State of the Union 2012 commentary on Twitter?
The White House's official Twitter feed is one place to be sure to watch, but also be aware that the official State of the Union 2012 hashtags will be #SOTU and #WHTweetup. Use those tags to follow along with all the newest commentary from around the world.
How else can I get involved?
YouTube is hosting a new feature called Your Interview with the President: A Post-State of the Union Conversation. The event, slated to take place Jan. 30, is an opportunity for citizens to ask Obama questions online and to vote submitted questions up or down to determine which ones he will actually answer during the online conversation. Visit the site to submit your own questions or to help decide which questions Obama will answer next week.
The White House will accept questions through Jan. 28 on the Youtube site above, and Obama will answer them in a Google+ hangout with several chosen questioners on Jan. 30 at 9 p.m.
