WH Tweets Announcement of Next News Conference

The White House announced today that President Obama will hold a prime-time news conference on Wednesday, but it made the announcement in a novel way: Posting it to Twitter.

"You heard it here first: Primetime presidential news conference at the White House, Wed. 7/22 @ 9PM EDT" the White House tweeted at 4:25 p.m.

Obama's last prime-time questioning by reporters occurred April 29.
