Former Secretary of State and current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is catering to the early primary state of New Hampshire by letting a local woman take over her massively popular Twitter account.
Mary Jo Brown, a Portsmouth, N.H., resident who owns the Brown & Company design studio, announced her lucky break from the account on Thursday morning.
Hi there! I’m Mary Jo—a mom, small business owner, and Granite Stater—and I’m taking over this Twitter account today. Welcome to Portsmouth!— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) May 21, 2015
The @HillaryClinton account, which has about 3,550,000 followers, changed its logo to incorporate a picture of Brown into the Clinton campaign’s “H” logo. The account name also changed to “Mary Jo for Hillary.”
New Hampshire is the first state to hold a presidential primary each election year. (Iowa is usually the first state to hold a nominating event, but it is a caucus, not a primary.)
The Daily Dot has asked the Clinton campaign if her account will continue to be used for one-day takeovers like this in the future. We will update if we hear back.
