The White House Joins Tumblr, Posts GIFs

Since last Friday, the White House has officially been on tumblr.

This new blog on tumblr adds to the administration's existing social media membership on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

The blog will feature light-hearted US-administration related information like, “the best quotes from President Obama,” some “photos of adorable moments with Bo” or a video of “young scientists visiting the White House for the science fair.”

As first tumblr post reads, “We want to see what you have to share: Questions you have for the White House, stories of what a policy like immigration reform means to you, or ways we can improve our Tumbling,” the blog does seem to be another convenient avenue for netizens to voice their opinions online.

Notably, the White House has also promised to post GIFs, and as testament to seeing that through, the latest GIF can be viewed below:
