That’s how many people subscribe to the combined channels of the three lucky YouTube personalities who got to interview President Obama Thursday evening.
It follows that he seized the opportunity to connect with the YouTube communities of his interviewers- and he definitely tapped into a younger population of future voters.
Mention Hank Green, Bethany Mota or GloZell Green around your tween relative, and they’re likely to respond as strongly to you as you did to adults asking who Justin Timberlake was back in ’98.
So, as YouTube guru Kaleb Nation summed up the interview, “For a lot of these kids, this is the only time that they’re going to have anything to do with politics.”
Dr. Drew’s question Thursday night was: did they pick the right interviewers? And was this a good move for the President?
