Robert Gibbs to take questions via Twitter

Want to know the White House's response to the TSA body scanner and pat-down situation? Have an opinion about the president's foreign policy? Want to know how the White House plans to respond to the report that federal agents responsible for nuclear weapons drank on the job? Well, today's your chance to ask.

Before Monday's regularly scheduled 1 p.m. press briefing, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs will be taking questions via Twitter and answering them in a video to be posted to the Web site WhiteHouse.gov. Just tweet a question using the hashtag #1Q. Technically, you won't be at the briefing, since Gibbs will answer the questions before he goes live before the media, but you may get a chance to have the White House answer one question you're dying to know about the government.

This is the second time the press secretary will be taking questions via Twitter. He tried it out in October. An official announcement from the White House says it will become a regular feature. This move is in line with the Obama White House's experiments with technology to push its message out while sidestepping traditional forms of media.

What question do you want to ask Gibbs?
