Posted Jun 10, 2013

Hillary Clinton, the former first lady of the United States, has joined Twitter.  Her first tweet says “Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe – I’ll take it from here …,”  In the tweet, she was referring to a couple of her supporters that created the popular “Texts from Hillary” Tumblr and Twitter accounts.

In her Twitter bio, Hillary Clinton wrote that she is a “wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…”  FLOAR stands for “first lady of Arkansas” and FLOTUS stands for “first lady of the United States.”  Hillary Clinton is following her husband Bill and her daughter Chelsea on Twitter.  Twitter has verified her account.

Chelsea sent out a tweet saying “Welcome Mom!” and Bill wrote  “Does @Twitter have a family share plan?H Great to be here with @HillaryClinton & @ChelseaClinton. Looking forward to #tweetsfromhillary.”
