Minutes after President Obama urged Americans this morning to tweet their support for a Democratic debt-ceiling bill, a New York Times reporter prompted the White House to organize the effort with a special Twitter hashtag.
Hashtags use the # symbol to mark keywords or topics on Twitter. They often help drive messages by linking similar messages together in a common theme.
At 10:55 a.m. the Timess Jennifer Preston suggested that administration officials might create a hashtag, so tweeting Democrats could jointly target Republicans who are now trying to pass their own debt ceiling plan.
Preston tweeted to a White House rep, saying @macon44 Hi there. I heard the President ask the people to tweet re: debt ceiling. Are you guys using specific hashtag?
A minute later, she tweeted a followup to White House staffer Jesse Lee, saying, Hi Jesse, whats the hashtag that you guys are urging people to use in their tweets to Congress re: debtceiling. Lee is the White Houses s director of progressive media & online response. (RELATED: New WH talking point: Boehner is the Grinch, and hell steal your Christmas)

Either the MSM works for Obama or he works for them.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
They've already told us so.
Too bad they can’t hashtag subscribers to the NYT or viewers to the MSM.
I think they’re smoking hash...
Pinch and his Mexican loan shark are going to start layoffs of NYT staffers pretty soon. Funny how the NYT has a debt ceiling and they lay people off when they can’t service the debt.
“...There is no liberal bias in the MSM.”
“They’ve already told us so.”
Not to mention the MSM is owned by large corporations
which are all run by conservatives......
Twitbrains, all of them!
Journolist! It’s baaaaack.
