Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright officially joined Twitter on Monday. 

Albright, who served as the head of the State Department under President Bill Clinton, pointed out that although she was the first woman to serve in that post, she lagged behind her female successors Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton in joining the social media service. Clinton joined in June.

Her Twitter bio reads “Grateful American Czech immigrant, mother & grandmother, fmr SecState, passionate democrat, author, prof, bizwoman, pin collector, & occasional drummer.”
