Keepers of JFK Legacy Hoping to Show Words Count on Twitter

BOSTON (AP) — President John F. Kennedy never got the chance to tweet, but that is about to change.

The JFK Library Foundation has launched a new project they’re calling “Words Count” that takes quotes from the nation’s 35th president and tweets them out using the @JohnFKennedy Twitter handle.

The account features exact quotations said or written by Kennedy as president.

The goal is to use a 21st century medium to pass on Kennedy’s legacy to a new generation who only know him from history books and news clips.
