Tweed Roosevelt, president of the TRA, commented on the website’s launch: “The TRA is delighted to move into the 21st century with its new website. We can now pass on to a whole new audience the ideals of Theodore Roosevelt.” Mr. Roosevelt, a great-grandson of Theodore Roosevelt, also wrote a blog post about what TR, an active and energetic user of the social media of his day, might do with the platforms we are familiar with today, like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
