Gov. Christie has launched new Twitter and Tumblr accounts to provide information on his keynote address and his travels surrounding the Republican National Convention.

Besides his @GovChristie twitter account, New Jersey’s GOP governor is now also tweeting from @ChristieKeynote and posting pictures and videos to govchristie.tumblr.com . The new Twitter account and Tumblr account — the latter paid for by the Republican National Committee — both became active Sunday morning.

Among the items posted on the Christie sites are a clip of former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean Sr. embracing Christie after he became the state’s chief executive in 2010 and a photo of Christie’s youngest daughter, Bridget, standing behind the podium and teleprompters that were set up at Christie’s house so he could practice his keynote speech.
