White House sets up Twitter account to promote Iran deal

July 21, 2015

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House has created a new Twitter account to promote the international agreement to rein in Iran’s nuclear program.

@TheIranDeal urges people to tweet their questions and promises to “set the record straight.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday the account also would serve as a forum for those who were involved in negotiating the agreement.

The White House also set up an online resource page at Whitehouse.gov/irandeal offering facts, graphics and videos.

Congress has 60 days to review the agreement, which has attracted heavy opposition from Republican legislators.
