Brand new format, same old answers. Reams of hype, most of it delivered in 140-character chunks, couldn't make President Obama's Twitter town hall on Wednesday as exciting as promised.
The hour-long event proved to be even less interesting than the average town hall. Just like Obama's April 19 town hall with Mark Zuckerberg, the event featured the president facing a younger entrepreneur; this time, however, there was the added annoyance of Twitter as simplifying middleman.
