YouTubers Bethony Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green to interview President Obama

Ever since 2010 the President of the USA Barack Obama has turned to YouTube and Google after his State of the Union speech to answer questions that are top of mind for the American people. Asked through YouTube video submissions or live via Google+ Hangouts, these questions brings an interesting perspective to the issues the president addresses in his speech. This year YouTube will be sending three of its popular YouTubers to the White House to talk with the president in person in a live broadcast on Thursday 22nd January.

What does the rise of the YouTuber as a multi-modal celebrity mean for pop culture?

At its core, YouTube remains the same as when it launched nine years ago; a site designed for everyday people to easily share videos online. It is now an enormous media platform that enables people to broadcast themselves to the world. And, with the right amount of skill, smarts and luck, users can tour the world, be granted great opportunities, become online celebrities and earn hundreds of thousands of dollars from their online presence – they are known as YouTubers.
