Hillary Clinton Joins Twitter
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has joined Twitter, describing herself as a "pantsuit aficionado" and a "hair icon."
The former New York senator and first lady sent out her first tweet on Monday under the handle @HillaryClinton.
In her first tweet, Clinton thanked the creators of the popular online parodies called "Texts from Hillary," and said, "I'll take it from here." She added a hashtag (hash)tweetsfromhillary.
The potential 2016 presidential candidate's profile page shows the infamous photo of the stern-looking Clinton wearing dark sunglasses and reading her Blackberry aboard a military plane.
Her biography section includes light-hearted descriptions like "hair icon," "pantsuit aficionado," and "glass ceiling cracker." The bio ends with the letters "TBD," meaning, `to be determined.'
After about three hours, Clinton had nearly 100,000 followers.
