U.S. President Barack Obama Invited to Tour

How to Meet President Obama in Orange County on March 18th

While Twitter is gaining momentum as an innovative tool for managing corporate communications, it can even be used to reach out to the President of the United States.

Here is how: On Wednesday, March 18th, President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit Southern California, with a planned stop in Orange County. Through the power of Twitter, a local entrepreneur is hoping that his invitation gets noticed.

Mitch Goldstone, president and CEO of Irvine, Calif.-based is using 140 characters and Twitter to invite the president to stop by his retail and ecommerce photo imaging company, long known for its entrepreneurial inventiveness. Founded in 1990, Mr. Goldstone’s company is regularly recognized for its grassroots, pro-consumer advocacy campaigns and constant reinventing of its business to improve the economy, create jobs and support the community. [See “In the News” at for more background].

Last fall, formed “Entrepreneurs Support Barack Obama,” and more recently, hosted a community-wide Inauguration Day party that was widely provided by the media, including ABC World News and CBS News.
