@iamwumrpres (I Am With You Mr. Pres) is President Obama’s “Twitter Army” led by drummer extraordinaire Ms. Sheila E. This army of drumming tweeters will march on January 2nd, 2011, the day before the Republican Party takes control of the House of Representatives.
Don’t bring your signs, just your tweeting device of choice and join Will.i.am, Mikal Kamil and Jimmy Jean-Louis who dreamt up this Mass Twitter/Viral March. “The goal of @iamwuMRPRES is to amass 100 million tweets by 2012 and to build the President’s indestructible twitter army for the 2012 Election.”
* Admittedly I’m a tad confused because Sheila E. is leading a drum corps. but the event is dubbed “No Signs, Just Tweets.” Anyway…
On January 2nd, 3:00PM, the march will begin at Sunset and Vine, ending in front of the CNN building on Sunset and Cahuenga. Sheila E will lead the i.am W/U MR. PRES “Twitter Countdown”. After 10-9-8-7-6-5-4- 3-2-1, Obama’s Twitter Army will shout “i.am W/U MR. PRES!” and tweet #iamwumrpres to twitter.com/iamwumrpres.
