    The White House announced today that President Obama will take questions via Twitter on Wednesday.
    "The President of the United States will answer your questions about the economy and jobs live via webcast from the White House," thefolks at Twitter announced.

    You can tweet inquiries to the hashtag #AskObama.

    No word on whether Obama will have to restrict his answers to 14 characters -- but there will be a videostream of the president's replies.

    "It's very exciting," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.

    The details of the event are still being worked on, he added.

    "We'll have to find out how this will work," Carney said.

    The White House agreed to the Twitter town hall a week after Obama's 2012 campaign announced that the president will soon start Tweeting himself.

    His account name: "-BO."
