Twitter got a new celebrity today,Hilary Clinton. You would think that Hilary must have been on twitter since her last presidential run. Nope, she is only getting on it now. John McCain after being criticized for not being technologically savvy enough had had a twitter account since his last lost bid to Obama.
Well, Hilary is generating waves on twitter as she come with unmatched celebrity status and the widely held notion that the iron lady will be making another run for the highest office in the country. Only 24 hours after opening her profile, she immediately garnered over 300, 000 followers and that number is growing exponentially as more and more users become aware that the lady with the famous pantsuits is online.
She also changed around the order of her former titles: US Senator and secretary of state are now listed before "hair icon" and "pantsuit aficionado" - which used to read "pantsuit fashionista."
She received warm welcome greetings from her husband Bill and daughter Chelsea on twitter.
Bill tweeted “Does twitter have a faily share plan? Great to be here with @HillaryClinton. Looking forward to #tweetsfromhilary.”
Then followed a tweet from Chelsea “ Welcome Mom! MT: @HillaryClinton. Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe – I'll take it from here... #tweetsfromhilary. “
Obama couldn't resist the temptation to tweet either. So, he tweeted this “ Happy to welcome @HillaryClinton to Twitter. Stay tuned for the real #TweetsFromHillary. “
Guess it's my turn to tweet too. “Welcome to twitter @Hillary. Looking to know what TBD is...”
