3267277_10.jpg"For the first time since Jack and I have been married, I have not been able to be with him while he is campaigning."

That's just one of the thoughts Jacqueline Kennedy shared with the country in a syndicated newspaper column back in 1960. It was long before the age of Twitter, of course, but now the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum here in Boston is using her column to share the thoughts of a presidential candidate's spouse. And the museum is using Twitter to do it.

The museum today released a first batch of Jackie O. Tweets. The others include:

"You can imagine how frustrating it is to be in Hyannis Port reading all that he's doing and not participating in any way."

"I decided one way to keep from feeling left out was to talk through this column to the friendly people all over the country..."

"The worst part was not being in Los Angeles for the nomination"

"To me it seemed it would surely be better to be there than sitting Hyannis Port, but my obstetrician firmly disagreed."

Read a full story from the Associated Press here and check back with Culture Desk in the coming weeks for more of Jackie O.'s Tweets.
