Washington: Louisiana governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal on Wednesday jumped into the 2016 White House race with a twitter message making him the first Indian-American and 13th Republican candidate to do so.

“I’m running for President of the United States of America. Join me: http://www.bobbyjindal.com/announcement,” he tweeted shortly after noon ahead of a planned formal announcement in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner Wednesday evening.

“A Special Announcement From Bobby Jindal. My name is Bobby Jindal, and I am running for President of the United States of America. There were three people I think you would agree my wife Supriya and I had to tell first,” said a second tweet.

Jindal’s tweet came shortly adviser Curt Anderson told reporters at a morning briefing: “We get into the race at 5 o’clock tonight.”

A hidden-camera style video of the governor telling his kids about his decision to run followed.

His daughter quickly leveraged the information, requesting a puppy as her share of the deal.

“OK, if we move into the White House, you can have a puppy,” Jindal told his daughter.

A meeting between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and members of the European Parliament (EP) over the social network’s use of personal data will be webstreamed, the Parliament’s President said on Monday.

The meeting, scheduled to take place on Tuesday, would be streamed over the Internet after Zuckerberg agreed to it, EP President Antonio Tajani said on Twitter.

“I am glad to announce that he has accepted this new request. Great news for EU citizens… I thank him for the respect shown towards EP,” Tajani said.

The meeting would take place a month-and-a-half after Zuckerberg testified before the US Congress over an alleged massive personal data leak to UK-based firm Cambridge Analytica.

“We are convinced that the millions of Europeans affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal deserve a full and thorough explanation from Facebook’s top manager, just as was the case for US citizens,” Tajani penned in a letter to Zuckerberg in April. (IANS)
