SnappyTV is the only way to "snap" a live tv clip from Obama's Twitter Town Hall from the live Whitehouse.gov video and share with your friends, readers and followers. You can post clips from the event in your blog within seconds of that moment being broadcast by creating your own or sharing what others are creating from the real time "snap" feed.
Either create your own live TV clip with SnappyTV or choose a clip from SnappyTV's library of clip feeds on http://j.mp/ObamaTVclips starting at 2 p.m. EST.
How to capture live TV clips from Obama's Twitter Town Hall
1. Visit http://j.mp/ObamaTVclips on your computer or download the SnappyTV iPhone app.
2. Hit "snap" and SnappyTV will capture what you saw instantly. From here, you'll be able to comment and share it on Facebook, Twitter, your blog or news outlet. (Note: "Snaps" are only viewable for up to 48 hours after being posted)
3. SnappyTV is also creating a "snap" for every individual answer and reply during the town hall forum, which can be emailed on request to news outlets or bloggers. To request snaps, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
"140 characters or a status update becomes a lot more descriptive if you're able to couple your comment with a link to that specific moment on television," said Mike Folgner, CEO of SnappyTV.
