Kennedy on the Campaign Trail

It’s zombie Kennedy. Fortunately for us, it’s John, not Teddy.

The JFK Library is recreating JFK’s campaign through tweets as though they were written on the trail on @Kennedy1960. If you enjoy history, politics, or just innovative uses of social media for teaching, you should follow it.

I have to say, this is one of the best uses of Twitter I’ve seen for an organization like this. It’s a very different way to bring history alive, and a great way to celebrate an anniversary that most people would understandably forget.
