Hillary Clinton’s twitter debut: what should she say? (A Loop contest!)

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has lots to what should she tweet? (Jacquelyn Martin/Associated Press)

We noticed that almost 45,000 people are following @HRClinton even though Clinton’s never written a single tweet. Even though it’s not an official account, plenty of people clearly are interested in what Clinton has to say to the twitterverse... So, what should that be?

We’re enlisting Loop fans to suggest which 140 characters should mark her entry into the twitterverse. To put it another way, WSHT? (What Should Hillary Tweet?)

The 10 best entries will win a coveted Loop T-shirt. Submit your suggestions to, and be sure to provide your name, profession, mailing address and what size T-shirt (adult M, L or XL) you’d like if you’re a winner (you can enter “on background” if you like.)

The contest will end Friday, Aug. 3, so get those entries in!
