"Our goal is to meet people where they are. It's why the President launched his own Twitter account and the First Lady is on Snapchat. It's about creating opportunities for people to engage with their government in new and accessible ways, using the same technologies we already rely on in our daily lives," said Jason Goldman, Chief Digital Officer of the White House.
