Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton has won over support after turning to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to make an announcement of her upcoming presidential campaign. Even though Clinton is a well recognized name in politics, it's expected she will try to use social media to promote a clear message in an effort to win over voters.
The following Tweet has garnered more than 100,000 retweets and has been favorited more than 97,000 times:
I'm running for president. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. -H https://t.co/w8Hoe1pbtC- Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) April 12, 2015
Even so, some have criticized Clinton and said the launch was "lackluster" and she missed "a huge opportunity to have an organized campaign with influential supporters and advocates all rallying and empowered," according to Jared Levy, founder of the Guru Media marketing agency.
