Former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has joined Twitter, describing herself as a "pantsuit aficionado" and a "hair icon".

The former New York senator and first lady sent out her first tweet under the handle @HillaryClinton.

In her first tweet, Mrs Clinton thanked the creators of the popular online parodies called "Texts from Hillary," and said, "I'll take it from here." She added a hashtag #tweetsfromhillary.

The potential 2016 presidential candidate's profile page shows the infamous photo of the stern-looking Mrs Clinton wearing dark sunglasses and reading her Blackberry aboard a military plane.

Her biography section includes light-hearted descriptions like "hair icon," ''pantsuit aficionado," and "glass ceiling cracker". The bio ends with the letters "TBD," meaning, 'to be determined.'

After about three hours, she had nearly 100,000 followers.
