What Did Obama Say During The Top Secret MIT Conference? Leaked Information Is Revealed

February 27, 2018 18:09

Being a politician, Barack Obama is used to give speeches all the time. But not all of them are as secret as his MIT session at Sloan Sports Analytics Conference. In fact, hundreds of people in attendance were prohibited to tweet, live-stream, or report any part of the former president’s appearance.

Although it was off the record, we live in 2018 where internet-connected smartphones make it possible to leak information. And attendees did that! Actually, there was nothing newsworthy in the speech, but for the fact that it was super confidential.

Here are 5 main points that Obama made

1. The former POTUS touched upon the topic of social media platforms, believing that they are both "a public good as well as a commercial enterprise." They are just tools, but Americans are still lucky to have an opportunity to get to know different sides of the story, unlike citizens of less democratic countries.

3. A big basketball fan, the 56-year-old discussed the ways to improve NBA.

We’re looking forward to some more interesting details.
