President Obama broke Reddit President Obama managed to break Reddit yesterday.
The President had his own AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit yesterday, giving users a 30 minute block to ask him anything. During the time, he only answered 10 questions out of the many hundreds asked, but many were locked out since the traffic managed to take down even the mighty servers at Reddit.

The popular site, which is one of the 50 biggest sites (by traffic) in the entire U.S., has remained somewhat obscure despite growth that most sites on the planet would envy.

Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian called the event a 'huge day for Reddit.'

I'm closing the comments here, prematurely. I'm sure you guys can understand why given the political nature of the article :)
