Hashtag hijack alert: #WomenEconForum announced by White House


Once again, the White House is dropping a gift into conservatives’ laps: #WomenEconForum, the official hashtag of the Forum on Women and the Economy. Hey, you won’t really be hijacking the hashtag since the White House was kind enough to invite you to participate.

So when will this forum take place? Maybe after the holiday weekend? Nah. How about Good Friday?

You'll note that @whitehouse's #WomenEconForum takes place on Good Friday. They're hoping no one will be paying attention. They are wrong.

Attendees will gather to bask in the presence of Valerie Jarrett, Hilda Solis, Kathleen Sebelius, Eric Holder, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, and of course, President Barack Obama.

The event kicks off on Friday at 8:45 a.m. EDT and runs until 12:30 p.m. But starting today, the White House welcomes your questions and comments on “Women at Work, Education, Health, Women’s Entrepreneurship, and Violence Against Women and Girls.”

Have at it!

And let us know: are you seeing this advertisement appearing at the top of the #WomenEconForum tweet stream?

Irony: the promoted tweet atop the #WomenEconForum stream is for a Lifetime movie about a woman who turns to prostitution to support family.
