Obama Hosts Q&A Session on Reddit
During this past week, US President Barack Obama created a Reddit account to host a question and answers session with users of the site, ahead of the election in November. Obama opened with, “Hi, I’m Barack Obama, President of the United States. Ask me anything. I’ll be taking your questions for half an hour starting at about 4:30 ET.” Obama then verified that it was actually him using the site by posting a photo on Twitter. He proceeded to answer 10 questions from Reddit users, but some other people weren’t able to access the site at all, with Reddit’s servers crashing due to the immense traffic. You can see the questions and answers in the session here.
