WEST PALM BEACH, FL, June 11, 2013 — In a burst onto the social networking scene that would make any Twitter-phile envious, Hillary Clinton has amassed more than 400,000 followers since joining Twitter two days ago.

Her first two followers were Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton.  

Hillary is following five tweeters; Bill, Chelsea, the Clinton School, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Clinton Foundation.

Her profile describes Hillary as, “Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…”

By the way, FLOAR is First Lady of Arkansas and FLOTUS is First Lady of the United States.

So far, Hillary has sent only one tweet: 

Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe - I’ll take it from here… #tweetsfromhillary

ASmith83 is Adam Smith, whose profile says: Politics. Campaign Reform. Gays. Pop Culture. Comm. Director at @publicampaign and @pcactionfund. Texts from Hillary co-creator. Gchat: adamsmith4
