Vice President Joe Biden on Jan. 26 will respond to questions posed to him on Twitter, he announced late Tuesday on his Twitter account.

President Obama "is right, we need an America built to last," Biden wrote. Purpose of the Twitter session will be to discuss points made by Obama in Tuesday's State of the Union address.

The Twitter chat is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. ET.

To ask questions of Biden, use the hash tag #WHChat.

Biden's official Twitter account is @VP.

Reaction to Obama's speech was, as expected, reflective of party lines.

"Class warfare is not an American value," Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) tweeted. "Dividing America will only hinder economic recovery & our nation's entrepreneurial spirit."

"If the President means what he says on housing I couldn't be more pleased," wrote US Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-CA), who endorsed Obama but has criticized him publicly. "People have waited too long for this relief."

"At the end of the night, there was still no plan for tax reform to create stronger economy w/ more jobs for families," tweeted a staff member with the GOP-controlled House Ways and Means Committee.

"If I was a teacher I'd give Barack Obama an A," wrote US Sen. Daniel K. Inouye (D-HI).

The president's State of the Union address can be viewed in the White House video archives in either enhanced or regular mode.
