The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site, on Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, is making national news for a tweet sent out regarding free speech.

The site is a National Historic Site, under the National Park Service and the U.S. Department of the Interior.

"Free speech, exercised both individually and through a free press, is a necessity in any country where the people are free," read the tweet, which was sent just after 11:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The tweet was featured in the New York Times after some federal agencies, including the National Park Service, were told to stop tweeting.

The Badlands National Park tweeted, but later removed their tweets, Tuesday.  Those tweets had to do with climate change.

As of Friday, the tweet from @TRInauguralSite had more than 900 re-tweets and at least 1,000 likes.
