KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 (Bernama) — United States President Barack Obama’s former chief blogger Sam Graham-Felsen has praised Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s efforts in hosting hi-tea and breakfast for his Internet friends as part of a renewed approach to reach out to various communities in the country.
Graham-Felsen, who served as Obama’s chief blogger during the 2008 presidential election, said the president had also used quite the same approach in “Dinner with Barack”.
“The dinner was the best opportunity for ordinary people to share their experience with the president and I think it (hosting hi-tea and breakfast) is a wonderful thing to do,” he told reporters after delivering a luncheon talk entitled “From a Click to a Movement: How Social Media is Changing Your Organisation and the World”, here Saturday.
The talk was organised by Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Berhad (Angkasa) in conjunction with the International Year of Cooperatives 2012.
Graham-Felsen was asked to comment on the breakfast hosted by Najib for his four Twitter followers at Chawan Restaurant in Bangsar here today.
