Looks like that day we’ve long awaited has arrived: Hillary Clinton is tweeting.

Clinton had been notably absent from Twitter, though there’s a huge demand for her 140-character musings — the Loop noted last year that 44,000 people were following @HRClinton, although the account hadn’t posted once. (That account was unofficial and has apparently since been suspended.)

We can only imagine that the real deal, @HillaryClinton, will rack up even more followers pretty quickly. Ah, but now there might be a little friendly competition between Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, who joined in April as @BillClinton.

In her inaugural tweet, she gave a virtual nod to the creators of a popular blog, “Texts from Hillary,” that imagined pithy communications from the former SecState.

Thanks for the inspiration @asmith83 & @sllambe - I’ll take it from here... #tweetsfromhillary

And here’s evidence that she’ll get just as much scrutiny on Twitter as she does in other forums — people immediately began close-reading her playful Twitter bio, in which she describes herself thusly: “Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD....”

And if Clinton is feeling a bit of a writer’s block in constructing her first few missives, she might want to consult the winning entries of the Loop’s contest for her inaugural tweet.
