LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — “Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…”

That’s how former Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is describing herself in the bio section of her newly public Twitter account.


hillarytweets Hillary Clinton Launches Public Twitter Account


Twitter verified the @HillaryClinton handle shortly after it was made public Monday, and former President Bill Clinton, who famously joined Twitter in April after some convincing from political comedian Stephen Colbert, warmly welcomed his wife to the social media site.

So far, Clinton only follows five accounts, including those of Bill and daughter Chelsea.

Her handle, though, already has more than 190,000 followers.

Clinton’s first public tweet does not directly address what many of those followers are probably thinking — Is launching a public account a step toward announcing a run for president?

Instead, it references the popular parody Tumblr account, Texts From Hillary.

Still, the “TBD…” portion of her bio undoubtedly has people wondering — is there a chance @BillClinton will have to change his handle to @FMOTUS in 2017?

Here are some of the tweets welcoming @HillaryClinton to the Twitterverse:
