screen cap of White House conversation on Twitter
WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Something unexpected happened during the White House's "Office Hours" on Twitter when a man complained to @whitehouse that he was bored by the conversation.
The White House was addressing questions and comments on the debt ceiling and deficit reduction negotiations on Wednesday, when @wiggsd (David Wiggs) tweeted "This WH correspondence briefing isn't nearly as entertaining as yesterday's."
National Economic Council member Brian Deese retweeted the comment from the White House account, then tweeted:
"@wiggsd Sorry to hear that. Fiscal policy is important, but can be dry sometimes. Here's something more fun: tinyurl.com/y8ufsnp"
That link opens up Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up."
