Obama was the first candidate to optimize the power of the Internet to help him get elected in 2008. And now the White House has invited three of YouTube’s biggest stars to interview the president after his State of the Union address on Jan. 20.

According to Mashable, “Bethany Mota, GloZell and Hank Green will sit down with the president at the White House on Jan. 22.” Anyone can send questions via the hashtag #YouTubeAsksObama. The interviewers will then select a few to ask the president.

It makes sense that Obama is taking it back to the Internets: Two of the biggest initiatives he’ll be speaking to include cybersecurity and expanding online access to everyone in America.
