President Obama participated in a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on Wednesday, causing the site to experience some outages due to increased traffic.
The president was on a college campaign tour, and the question-and-answer session followed a stop in Charlottesville, VA. According to interview with the Washington Post, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian says Reddit was founded while he and co-founder Steve Huffman were students at the University of Virginia.
Obama is no stranger to social media. He has hosted similar sessions on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. You can read the entire Reddit AMA transcript here.
