Obama to Do Some Social Media Name Dropping in Education Speech

In the speech that President Obama is set to deliver tomorrow to America’s schoolchildren, a paragraph caught our attention:

It’s the story of students who sat where you sit 250 years ago, and went on to wage a revolution and found this nation. Students who sat where you sit 75 years ago who overcame a Depression and won a world war; who fought for civil rights and put a man on the moon. Students who sat where you sit 20 years ago who founded Google, Twitter and Facebook and changed the way we communicate with each other.

Congrats to Larry, Sergey, Mark and Jack for getting some love from POTUS!

Obama is set to deliver the remarks in Arlington, Va., at 12 p.m. EDT.
