When President Obama delivers his State of the Union address Tuesday, we’ll carry it live on lohud.com using our new social video player.
The player, which we debuted during the Presidential Inauguration, features live video of the president’s address alongside streams from Twitter — tweets from Gannett journalists and members of Congress. It works on desktop, iPad, iPhone and Android devices.
If you’d rather refine your perspective to Republican-only tweets, the Republican House has a similar player set up for the party’s State of the Union response at http://www.gop.gov/SOTU/.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., will deliver the rebuttal in both English and Spanish.
The White House plans to stream the president’s address as well. Find it at http://www.whitehouse.gov/ or download a mobile app at http://www.whitehouse.gov/mobile. The staff will add charts, statistics and data to “help explain policies and the issues” while Obama speaks, just as it did last year.
Afterwards, Administration officials will stick around to answer questions about the president’s address. Before, during and after the speech, submit your questions on Twitter using the hashtags #WHChat and #SOTU, at Facebook.com/WhiteHouse and on WhiteHouse.gov.
