Hillary Clinton basically just announced her candidacy on Twitter

Kind of.

Clinton joined Twitter today, amassing over 70,000 followers in an hour. Her first and thus far only tweet ended “#tweetsfromhillary,” a clever nod to her own meme, but it’s her bio that caught our attention.

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

If you have the chance to be the first female president but actually plan to spend the rest of your life watching “Love It or List It,” “glass ceiling cracker, TBD…” is not how you present yourself to the world.

    I’m pretty sure she didn’t mean “Will I crack a glass ceiling? We’ll see,” but rather “Look at all of these things I am, and keep watching because who I’ll become next is TBD!”

      I agree! I read “TBD” as more of a statement about her future. She’s been a pretty good glass ceiling cracker already!

    Even if she doesn’t run again (or doesn’t win again), I kind of love her for not being satisfied with resting on her laurels. First Lady, Secretary of State, Senator… why stop there? Hlilary Clinton has shit to do.
