BREAKING: The White House will be bringing you animated GIFs and “adorable moments with Bo” on Tumblr. Yes, really. “Breaking.”

Should never call this breaking news -> @whitehouse Breaking: The White House is now on @tumblr (there will be GIFs) at.wh.gov/ksJHi.

@whitehouse That’s cool. But it’s not “BREAKING NEWS”. Please. Let’s calm down.
