digg dialogueAs expected and rightfully so, Toyota is hitting the social media trail to calm recent negative publicity surrounding the recent Toyota recalls. Jim Lentz, President and Chief Operating Officer of Toyota Motor Sales, USA, will be answering questions from the Digg.com community.

Digg, a social news site where users submit content from across the web for other users to "Digg" or "Bury" has thus far been relatively quiet regarding the Japanese automaker.
