President Obama took to Twitter today to answer questions as part of his post-State of the Union visit to Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The president's social media outreach was "part of his effort to engage with Americans about the real progress the American people have made to move our country forward, and how we can continue taking action to address the challenges and opportunities in the years ahead," a White House official said.

Twitter users posed questions ranging from health care to basketball, using the hashtag "#AskPOTUS." Here's a look at five of the president's responses.

1. Obama's greatest memory as president

2. Standing up to Islamophobia

3. Michael Jordan > Kobe Bryant and Lebron James

4. How he'll make college more affordable

5. Reducing influence of money in politics

Some of the questions the president didn't answer came from House Speaker Paul Ryan
