For the last year or so, texts from Hillary Clinton were not actually written by the former First Lady and Secretary of State.

— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 10, 2013
(Note the shout-out to Texts from Hillary creators Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe.)

— Bill Clinton (@billclinton) June 10, 2013

The real Hillary Clinton is more charitable than her doppelgänger — her profile links to her family’s non-profit organization, the Clinton Foundation. More #tweetsfromhillary are coming soon.
