Tonight Pres. Obama will give a speech on education on Univision at 7PM Eastern, so the White House tweeted this in Spanish,

Es El Momento: Presidente Obama habla directamente al comunidad Hispana sobre el futuro de educaction. 7pm en Univision.

There are a couple of things wrong with this:
For starters, if you insist on using that statement, which is not a good translation, it should read,

Es El Momento: Presidente Obama habla directamente a la comunidad hispana sobre el futuro de la educación

The correct statement, however, would have been what @icaito tweeted,

@lacasablanca El Presidente Obama hablará directamente con la población hispana sobre el futuro de la educación. 7pm EST, en Univisión.

@Icaito followed up with,
