Jackie joins Twitter 50 years after JFK campaign (AP)

FILE - In this Oct. 5, 1960 file photo, Jacqueline Kennedy poses at her typewriter where she writes her weekly 'Candidate's Wife' column in her Georgetown home in Washington.  The newspaper column called 'Campaign Wife,' included discussion of policies and issues with personal stories and Mrs. Kennedy's advice on everyday matters such as child-rearing and shopping. A half-century later,  the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library is using Twitter to recreate Jackie's periodic glimpses into the life of a presidential candidate's spouse. (AP Photo/File)AP – Had Twitter been an option in 1960, a pregnant Jacqueline Kennedy might well have used it to communicate with voters while largely confined to her Massachusetts home and notably absent from her husband’s presidential campaign.
