On Wednesday, January 29th the White House is opening their social media doors to answer our questions in real time.
As described on the White House Blog
“On Wednesday, January 29th, with a nod to history (and maybe the TV show the West Wing), the Obama Administration is hosting the first-ever virtual “Big Block of Cheese Day”, during which dozens of White House officials will take to social media for a day long open house to answers questions from everyday Americans in real-time on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and via Google+Hangout. You can start asking questions now using#AsktheWH.“
