He shared a New York Times piece from last week on letters written to him throughout his presidency.
I read letters like these every single day. It was one of the best parts of the job – hearing from you. https://t.co/so1luBcszV

Of course, the onslaught of emotional tweets and tears from his fans was immediate.
