Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has joined Twitter, poking fun at her own image and keeping political classes guessing about her future.
Her account, @HillaryClinton, was verified within hours and quickly gained more than 100,000 followers.
She jokingly styles herself as a "pantsuit aficionado", "hair icon" and "glass ceiling cracker".
Her biography section begins by describing herself as "wife, mom, lawyer", before going on to list a few of the many high-profile public positions she has held.
The last line of her Twitter bio simply states: "TBD...", meaning "to be determined".
Polling suggests Mrs Clinton would be a front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination if she chose to run, but she has remained coy about her plans.
