The Best Moments Of Obama’s Reddit IAMA
If you hadn’t heard of Reddit before today, you have now.
As described by Wikipedia, Reddit is “a social news website where the registered users submit content, in the form of either a link or a text “self” post. Other users then vote the submission “up” or “down”, which is used to rank the post and determine its position on the site’s pages and front page.”
One of the more popular “subreddits” is IAMA (I am a ______), where people can post about who they are or what they do and other users can ask them anything. (Get it? AMA, “ask me anything.”)
IAMA is not foreign territory for celebrities, but I’m pretty sure today’s President Obama IAMA took the Reddit cake. In fact, the whole site was down for most of the afternoon. As Twitter’s fake Will McAvoy quipped, “Barack Obama is working to create jobs for Americans. Specifically in reddit’s IT department.”
Well, if you missed the fun, we’ve got the best moments from the Obama IAMA. Enjoy.
