Washington: Former US president Barack Obama posted his number online on Twitter, urging the Americans to text him with their voting preference.
"All right, let's try something new. If you're in the United States, send me a text at 773-365-9687 - I want to hear how you're doing, what's on your mind, and how you're planning on voting this year. I'll be in touch from time to time to share what's on my mind, too", the 59-year-old politician tweeted.
Notably, the former president is having over 122 million followers on Twitter. Mr Obama posted a similar message on Instagram, where he is having 32 million followers.Given that the US elections are on November 3, it's likely that Mr Obama will use the platform to engage with potential voters and help Joe Biden win.The elections are expected to set records for the number of people voting by mail. At least 84 per cent of voters are able to vote by mail this year.(UNI)
