Israeli President Reuven Rivlin Will Take Questions on Twitter

JERUSALEM — Israeli President Reuven Rivlin will hold a question and answer session on his English and Hebrew Twitter accounts.

There is still time to submit a question… #AskRivlin

“While I have often referred to myself as an analogue president, in a digital age, I am delighted for the opportunity to engage with people around the world and answer their questions,” Rivlin said in a statement.

Rivlin was elected as Israel’s tenth president in 2014, after serving more than 20 years in the Knesset as a lawmaker, government minister nad speaker of the Knesset.
