Today President Obama sat down with David Karp, the founder of Tumblr, for a Q&A on education and the state of student loan debt in America. The questions themselves came from the Tumblr community; several notable Tumblr bloggers- like ilovecharts and jtotheizzoe- were asked to help curate and choose the best ones for the president to answer, and it was all streamed live on Tumblr this afternoon. 

We took a quick look at Tumblr activity around the @obamaIRL event, which has seen huge amount of engagement so far (nobody gets reblogged like the president, after all!). In the past week, there have been more than 1500 #obamaIRL posts receiving 276,000 notes from more than 259,000 unique Tumblr users. The @whitehouse’s top post about the event has already received more than 233k notes in just 24 hours!

Whoa! Thanks to everyone who participated, you guys are awesome.

ALL FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA!

Good morning everyone. I wanted to share something that has been really miraculously been happening to me because of my juicing. My skin has been getting very clear and I have this glow and I know it’s because of the Juicing the fruits and vegetables. I feel amazing.

why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain
