White House Invites Social Media Users To Apply To Attend 'White House Holiday Social' Event

Special #WHHoliday meet-up is Dec. 16; deadline to apply is Dec. 11...
Washington, DC - The White House is inviting its Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest followers to apply to tour the Executive Mansion and view this year's 'Gather Around' decor scheme during a Holiday Social meet-up next Monday, Dec. 16.  

"White House Social guests will be invited to check out the décor, meet with the people that helped transform the White House for the holidays, join us for a craft project--and share it all with their followers with the hashtag #WHHoliday," the White House said.

"This event is designed for people who regularly interact with the White House via TwitterPinterest and Instagram. Registration is open to those who are active users on these social media platforms."

The deadline to apply online is Wednesday, December 11th at 12:00 PM ET.  Interested applicants must state why they want to attend in 140 characters or less.

Not a social media user?  Sign up now.  The White House has a loose definition for what qualifies as "active users" of social media.   Some of the participants invited to previous White House social media events, such as Instagram and Twitter tweetups, had as few as 23 followers on their social media accounts.  

"After you sign up, spread the word! Let your followers know that you applied to attend the #WHHoliday social," the White House said.

The lucky guests "will be notified no later than Wednesday, December 11th, 2013," 
the White House said.  Tickets are non-transferable.
