On October 13, 2011, President Barack Obama will host President Lee Myung-bak of the Republic of Korea at the White House for a State Visit. This State Visit will highlight the strong alliance, global partnership, and deep economic ties between our two countries, and celebrate the strong bonds of friendship between the American and Korean people.

State Visits begin with an arrival ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House, a tradition that started during the Kennedy Administration to formally welcome a visiting head of state. The White House announced today that the arrival ceremony for the Republic of Korea, one of the most wired nations in the world, will mark the largest White House Tweetup yet. A Tweetup is an in-person meeting of people who use the social media to follow the White House, including Twitter and on Facebook. This Tweetup is an opportunity to attend the Arrival Ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House.

Registration opens at 3:00 p.m. EDT on September 28, 2011 on www.wh.gov/tweetup and will close at 11:00 a.m. EDT on September 29, 2011. Registration is for one person plus one guest. It is non-transferable. The White House will contact applicants via email with additional instructions to those that have been invited or added to the waitlist.

If you cannot come to the White House in Washington, D.C. to attend in person, you should not register for the Tweetup. You can follow the Tweetup on Twitter with the hashtag #WHTweetup. Check back on WhiteHouse.gov/Tweetup and follow @WhiteHouse for updates on upcoming Tweetups.

Update: The registration deadline has been extended to 5:00 p.m. EDT on September 29, 2011.

If economic conditions continue to rise time, very grossly pictured offer, you Call me crazy, but the exchange rate, with steeply rising food prices are rising so it's not enough, the shrinking job situations, a moment to stop the entry of other companies,

The two companies will choose a particular area and, to increase the size of the pie, to continue creating jobs, while retaining the middle class, the two companies' profits may find a way to give back to society what about two? So, consuming too hard war, donate money to the court as an artist it says - I do not know why you continue to do. Although, i-phone and i-pad created by the market, but the result was so wonderful - in a positive way .... That do not have enough buyers, producers in many markets, I think it's hard to generate earnings. What is needed now, rather than the survival of businesses, create jobs, to large-scale consumption of a healthy middle class that is deemed necessary.

Please consider the timing. What we need .....
