President Barack Obama broke all the campaigning rules when he held an unmoderated Q&A session on one of the Internet's most infamous socially aggregated new sites -- and he also broke a Reddit record.
Obama's session on Reddit yesterday attracted more user activity than any other single submission to the forum, more than even the site's front page, Reddit revealed today in a stats breakdown of the virtual visit.
By the end of the day yesterday, the site had clocked nearly 3 million page views for the submission and the number kept growing by the tens of thousands. As of 9 a.m. PT today, that number was at nearly 5.3 million.
