Monica Lewinsky, whose affair with President Bill Clinton in the 1990s left an indelible stain on his presidency, joined Twitter on Monday.

Here's her first tweet:


This is not important news. But people in Washington, D.C., took notice.

Even though Twitter was abuzz with Lewinsky's presence, no one could quite figure out why.


The first person to ask what this means for the Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential ambitions should be banned from Twitter.
