Hillary Clinton Joins Twitter, Possibly Drops 2016 Hint

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Hillary Clinton is now on Twitter, and her arrival on the social media scene immediately sparked speculation about her desire to run for president in 2016.

Hillary Clinton on Twitter

In her brief bio, the wife of Father of the Year Bill Clinton calls herself:

“Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD ...”

It’s the “TBD” that has prompted a flurry of interest. Is that code for a second presidential run? Or just a truthful acknowledgment that her future is ... TBD?

A person probably can’t run for president in 2016 without a Twitter handle, and Clinton's fun bio shows her credentials with humor and self-deprecation.

Even her Avatar was funny. It's the photo by Diana Walker that inspired the hilarious Texts From Hillary Tumblr started by Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe.

Smith and Lambe now have the distinction of shout-outs in Hill's first Tweet: “Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe - I’ll take it from here ... #tweetsfromhillary.”

Nice hashtag too. Well played debut, Mrs. C.

By allowing politicians to cut out the elected officials, reporters, and pundits who tell voters what to think, Twitter has become a must-have in the political world.

Or just the public world. Republican strategist Kevin Madden says Twitter has become so essential these days that it doesn't necessarily foretell a 2016 run:

“It's just a sure sign that Twitter is now standard operating procedure as a communications tool for public figures interested in staying in touch with audiences.”

What do you think: Hillary 2016?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news for you Liberal Democrats but by 2016 at the age of 70 Hillary Clinton will be much more likely to fall and break her hip than to ever be elected as the next President of the United States of America. Besides that, at 70 years old by 2016 Hillary will have to have had so much plastic surgery done by the time she runs for President that her only real body part she will left will be her heart! Her cold, cold, lying heart...

Careful Franklin- to much truth all at once could put the spineless penniless kings of FREE contraception in shock. Hillary has a better chance of looking up a cows ass and predicting the price of milk in 2016 compared to winning. Besides her skin tone is to light?
