@HillaryClinton says future TBD

Update 12:21 p.m. ET on Tuesday 6/11: That didn't take long. Only 24 hours after unlocking her profile, Clinton has gained more than 300,000 followers on Twitter, and issued her inaugural tweet:

The names she cites are the founders of the popular "Texts from Hillary" blog, which went viral using the photo that now serves as Clinton's profile pic.

She also changed around the order of her former titles: US Senator and secretary of state are now listed before "hair icon" and "pantsuit aficionado" - which used to read "pantsuit fashionista."

Her family issued a set of welcoming responses:

She also got some friendly tweets Monday from multiple high-profile Tweeters, including President Barack Obama.

Original Post

(CNN) - The page is empty and tweets are blocked from public viewing, but Hillary Clinton's Twitter profile appears ready for its public debut.

The handle @HillaryClinton, which features the famous photo of the former secretary of state looking down at her Blackberry, has two followers: the verified accounts of Bill and Chelsea Clinton.

And the biography is revealing: "Mom, wife, lawyer, FLOAR, FLOTUS, women & kids advocate, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit fashionista, U.S. Senator, ceiling cracker... SecState... TBD..."

Bill Clinton joined Twitter this year to great fanfare, originally being assigned the handle "@PrezBillyJeff" by comedian Stephen Colbert, but soon switched to @BillClinton. That was in April - he's now at more than 700,000 followers.

Will his wife follow suit? Stay tuned...

    Gone viral? I thought that was only when she had to testify. "Help! The presidents fallen...and she can't get up!!" Those clintons just don't have that old whitewater genius anymore. I don't think it's a "glass" ceiling but rather a class ceiling.

    Hillary is the 800 pound Gorilla in the room, as far as the GOP is concerned.
    IF....she decides to run in 2016, it's a done deal.
    I mean, there aren't enough electable Republicans to run a Car Wash, much less a country?

    God help us all. At least Twitter limits the number of characters that can be "tweeted" – most on there don't have the mental cpacity to use too many characters.....

    The prospect of a Hllary Clinton presidency is almost as bad as an Obama 3rd term and likely similar. Bad for America!

    Only reason to vote for her would to be able to say the Obama Administration wasn't the most corrupt.
    And then when America implodes the blame won't go to Obama either.
    Libs, you just don't see the destruction your party brings.
    Quite funny.

    As of today there are only two I would vote for in 2016 1 would be Hillary and the other would be Christie
    Yes I am an independent voter. I do not need the media saying to me this is the one you want nor the conservative talk show clowns saying you must think like me Look at both of their resume`s in 2016

    She failed at healthcare. She failed as Sec of State. She has never accomplished much of anything living instead on Bill's coat tails. She knows nothing about the economy and has no idea how to improve it. In other words, she is a perfect candidate for the democrats.

    If she has little bit of common sense and foresight, she wouldn't run. If does run and looses; people would be sick of seeing another Clinton (namely Chelsea). Clintons are not that stupid.
