Follow Obama’s Inauguration on Twitter
It's no news that Barack Obama used technology to his advantage during the election, leveraging everything from online fundraising to mass texting. Now the president-elect 2.0 is at it again—the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) announced its new inauguration Twitter feed yesterday. As of 9:30 this morning, obamainaugural had 422 followers. The account went live on December 22.
According to the PIC, the account will be used to "post official logistical and scheduling information," including "the latest transportation, weather, and event information on January 20th, to help facilitate the best inauguration experience possible for you." This might prove very useful if the massive crowds and traffic nightmare pan out as expected.
