Jesus died for our selfies
Lena in. Quintessential Brooklynite and divisive millennial figure Lena Dunham checked in with some Silicon Valley business owners yesterday, spending time with Kara Swisher, Sheryl Sandberg, and sundry Twitter and Facebook folks. It was probably a publicity tour dress rehearsal for her upcoming tome, That Kind of Girl, scheduled for release Oct. 7. Can a Reddit AMA be next, please?
Hillary Clinton is furthering her social media evolution by getting into the selfie game, less than one week after she created her own Twitter account.
Technically, daughter Chelsea took the selfie. She tweeted it this afternoon with the caption, “My first #selfie w my mom @HillaryClinton back stage at #CGIAmerica. #ProudDaughter.”
Everyone’s favorite erstwhile FLOTUS, SSOTUS and GONYOTUS has finally joined Twitter.
Hillary Clinton was verified today, and her lone tweet is a shoutout to the creators of the Texts From Hillary Tumblr: “Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe – I’ll take it from here… #tweetsfromhillary”
