I am Barack Obama, President of the United States -- AMA





Obama AMA

Image Credit: 

So the President of the United Stats has done an IAMA on Reddit ( I Am A) and while doing the IAMA he did it with an AMA (Ask Me Anything). So the president sat for half a hour on Reddit and took questions from users. Everyone familiar with Reddit knows sometimes things can get quite embarrassing - the President however handled everything very well and it became a successful AMA. As of writing this there are over 21,700 comments and the discussion is till happening. This makes him the first president on history to do an AMA and on a site like Reddit.

President Obama answered about 10 questions and if you would like to read just the questions he answered here is the permalink. Yes, the president was asked about Internet Freedom and he did reply saying that he understood how everyone cared so passionately about it and that he did too. Also stating he is going to fight hard to ensure it stays an open forum for everybody. This is principle he won't stray from. The AMA did have an effect on Reddit and the site was reported a little sluggish by users. Obama proved it was genuine by submitting a link in his Twitter account. Non-Redditors also logged-on to Reddit to see what the president would say and answer questions. Reddit now has all the potential to become the next battleground as the president has proved that accepts technology and not afraid to use it. If any good comes from all of this we hope it would lead to Internet Freedom not being removed from people across the world.

After State of the Union Obama to answer questions on YouTube

"After the President's speech begins this Wednesday (1/27) at 9pm EST, anyone will be able to submit a follow-up question and vote on others at YouTube.com/CitizenTube. Then next week, the President will answer questions in a special online event, live from the White House," Phillips wrote.
Earlier this week, the White House introduced the White House iPhone App, which delivers much of the content available on whitehouse.gov in a mobile interface. With the app, iPhone users will be able stream the State of the Union address live.

Evidently, President Obama will not be answering those questions live: the days following the speech, users will be able to submit additional questions and vote on their favorites.
Next week, although Google still has to communicate the exact timing, the top-voted questions will be asked to the president in a YouTube interview from the White House, which will also be broadcast live on Citizentube

President Obama's first-ever Tweet.

President Obama has just pushed his first tweet. This is how it happened. The president and his wife were visiting the American Red Cross to promote aid to Haiti. He pushed the button on a tweet. Making him the first commander-in-chief to tweet. History was made at the push of a button. Located at @RedCross









CNN has this to say


Aides to former President George W. Bush told CNN that he never published a tweet, and they were happy to crown Obama as the first tweeting President - with a catch.


These are the tweets found on the Red Cross twitter feed


President Obama and the First Lady are here visiting our disaster operation center right now.


President Obama pushed the button on the last tweet. It was his first ever tweet!


There was more good news on the website as well: "Donation Update: Over $21 Million in $10 donations raised for the people of #Haiti through the @RedCross text HAITI to 90999"reads another tweet.  Americans have really responded and have given aid.
