The White House will host a Twitter session with President Barack Obama on July 6.

The president will answer questions submitted via Twitter, which limits messages to 140 characters. The session will focus on jobs and the economy, and a video feed of Mr Obama's answers will be streamed online.

While Mr Obama has taken questions submitted on social networking sites in previous public meetings, including one hosted by Facebook, the White House says this is the first time the questions will come exclusively through Twitter.

Mr Obama's presidential campaign said last week that he f is starting to regularly tweet. Tweets sent by the president using his Twitter account will be signed "-BO."
