INDONESIA - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has provided an opportunity for Twitter users to meet him and First Lady Ani Yudhoyono by using their Twitter handles to comment on his 10 years in office.

Through his official Twitter account, @SBYudhoyono, the President said that people should put the #KopdarPamitan hashtag in their tweets in order to participate in the quiz. Kopdar is a common term used by Indonesian radio station communities, meaning to meet up in person, while pamitan means farewell.

"The chosen opinion will be invited to participate in a #KopdarPamitan meeting with President SBY and Ibu Ani," the Yudhoyono account read on Sunday morning.

The account message said that the quiz, which was launched on Sunday, would end next Tuesday and the winners would have the chance to meet the President and the first lady at the Yogyakarta Presidential Palace on Thursday.

However, the Twitter account did not elaborate on how many people would be picked as winners, nor if the transportation costs to Yogyakarta would be covered.
