“Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe – I’ll take it from here…, ” Hillary Clinton tweeted from her long-locked and dormant Twitter account.

Clinton’s tweet referred to Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe — the pair who created the popular “Texts from Hillary” Tumblr meme that went viral in April 2012. The meme enjoyed widespread media coverage, and the creators even met with Clinton personally, whereupon they both agreed to close down their popular blog.

“As far as memes go — it has gone as far as it can go,” the pair wrote in a statement on their Tumblr blog on April 11, 2012.

But perhaps the team behind Hillary Clinton’s Twitter account feel differently.

Hillary’s first tweet launched a new hashtag #tweetsfromhillary — suggesting that the Clinton team believes that the Tumblr meme can still catch fire on Twitter.

Clinton’s profile lists several different cultural references of her past political history including her love of pantsuits and her changing hairstyle.
