  • US Secretary of Sate Hillary Clinton joined Twitter yesterday, and her bio is rather impressive…

    Hillary Clinton launched her first Twitter account yesterday, describing herself in her bio as a ‘hair icon,’ and ‘pantsuit aficionado’.

    Gaining a whopping 300,000 followers in just over 12 hours, the US Secretary of State posted a single tweet after setting up her account.

    ‘Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe – I’ll take it from here… #tweetsfromhillary,’ she wrote.

    But it wasn’t her tweet that interested us so much as her (rather impressive) bio, which named a senior position in the US Senate and ‘glass ceiling cracker’ among her many achievements.

    Clinton also named herself a hair icon, and an expert in office dressing.

    ‘Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…,’ her twitter bio reads.

    The final line, TBD, or To Be Decided – and, in fact, her decision to join the social networking site at all – has been touted by many as yet another sign she’ll join the presidential race in 2016.

    Meanwhile, she was welcomed to the site by her husband, former President Bill Clinton, who joked: ‘Does @Twitter have a family share plan?,’ followed by her daughter Chelsea.
