White House Starts Tumblr Blog to Showcase Letters Sent to Obama

shutterstock_218487058The White House unveiled a new Tumblr account on Tuesday that will highlight actual letters addressed to President Barack Obama.

Titled “Letters to President Obama,” the new Tumblr blog endeavors to showcase the materials mailed to the White House, as well as the stories behind them.

As the account’s official description notes, “the President and his Administration get a lot of mail.” So “Letters to President Obama” offers the White House social media staff a chance to share these submissions with interested readers. Such as the blog’s first entry, which comes from Natoma Canfield, a cancer survivor from Ohio who credits Obamacare with her recovery:

In addition to the usual manner of writing a letter, stuffing it into an envelope and slapping a stamp on it, “Letters to President Obama” also offers an online submission option. No word yet on whether or not they’ll be able to digitally convert all the anthrax, though.
