He invited people to ask him questions on the topics of Energy, the Economy, Education, Efficiency, Environment, and Crime from 10-11 a.m. today.
Several persons posted a wide range of questions on the listed topics, and other areas, with one person even asking him about his favourite football team.
Asked how he would distinguish himself as a leader, he said by continuing to be honest with the people, inspiring youth and by rejecting confrontational politics.
Holness also said he would not change his leadership style despite criticisms.
However, questions regarding how he rated himself out of 10 as a leader and about the strategic report done after the last general election went unanswered.
When the one-hour session, ended some persons expressed disappointment about the level of engagement by Holness and the fact that many questions went unanswered.
However, he has promised he will hold another session saying a 21st century leader must embrace Twitter and Facebook as tools to engage citizens.
