The president of the United States will hold a Q&A session exclusively through Twitter on July 6 in an effort to answer the public's concerns.

The White House will host a Twitter session with Barack Obama on 6 July. The US president will answer questions submitted through the microblogging site in a session that will focus on jobs and the economy. A video feed of his answers will be streamed online.
