Under Secretary Sonenshine Participates in a Global Twitter Q&A

This week's "Photo of the Week" comes to us from the Office of Digital Engagement's Jeff Jackson and shows Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Tara Sonenshine participating in a "Global Twitter Q & A" on December 5, 2012.

During the event, Under Secretary Sonenshine answered questions submitted on Twitter in eight languages, including Arabic, Chinese, English, Farsi, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The questions focused on a broad range of issues, from recent events in Egypt to U.S.-Mexico relations to study abroad and foreign language education. Engagements like this are part of the State Department's on-going effort to engage audiences directly on foreign policy issues using our social media properties.
