Ivey to tweet during State of the Union address

State Treasurer Kay Ivey, a Republican candidate for governor, plans to comment through her Twitter account during President Obama's State of the Union speech on Wednesday starting at 8 p.m.

She will share her observations on Obama's agenda.

"What happens in Washington has a profound impact here in Alabama on the state level," Ivey said. "What is announced on Wednesday night will affect all of us, and I'm eager to share my thoughts with all Alabamians."

Ivey has participated in a candidate interview via Twitter. She has also conducted a telephone town hall about her solutions to problems with the state's prepaid college tuition program.

"New technology is giving people unprecedented opportunities to connect with one another," Ivey said. "This is a fantastic way to share my message directly with folks, and lets them communicate with me directly in return. It's especially helpful to people who live in small towns and rural areas, who don't always get direct access to candidates."

Too bad she couldn't manage to show up for today's public hearing on PACT.
