Obama takes questions on climate, and hoops, over Twitter.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — President Barack Obama on Thursday went over the heads of the traditional press corps and took questions on Twitter for a half hour using his new account @POTUS. Although set up to discuss climate change after a tour of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Obama addressed a variety of different subjects, including the upcoming NBA Finals The president responded to someone who said he was more worried about his student loans than climate change by pointing out that Pell Grants have been expanded and student loan interest rates capped, and that he was pushing to make two years of community college free.

Yes, that’s President Obama’s official Twitter handle — @POTUS — tweeting about this year’s NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. His assessment of Golden State’s Stephen Curry is on-point; he’s been lights-out all postseason, shooting 46 percent from the field and 44 percent from beyond the arc.
