To mark the anniversary of last year's stimulus package, Democrats have been pushing a chart comparing monthly job loss figures under George W. Bush and under President Obama. Now Obama -- or at least his Twitter persona, run by the Democratic National Committee -- is about to ask supporters to help out.
"OFA supporters are donating their Twitter pictures to mark the anniversary of the #RecoveryAct. Change yours here: http://bit.ly/b-E," the @BarackObama Twitter page will ask its 3.3 million followers Wednesday evening, a source tells Salon. It links to a tool to automatically switch your icon to the graph. The icon for Obama's account will also change for 24 hours, the first time it's been changed since the end of the 2008 campaign.
