In just the past few weeks alone, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has also joined LinkedIn and Instagram.


Is Hillary Clinton a genius?


The 2016 Democratic frontrunner has begun using “Genius,” an innovative digital platform that allows Internet users to annotate and comment on songs, documents and other texts, to allow her fans to more actively participate in her campaign.


According to
CNN, Clinton’s presidential campaign is using the tool to let people annotate and comment on her speeches, starting with her first official campaign speech on Saturday on Roosevelt Island.


Genius, created in 2009 under the name “Rap Genius,” and was started to allow fans of different music genres to annotate and comment on lyrics to their favorite songs. It has since expanded to literature, news, sports and current events.


The Clinton campaign will use its social media accounts to encourage fans and followers to offer “reactions, comments, and questions directly in response to Hillary’s remarks from campaign events,” officials told CNN.


The “Genius” experiment marks Clinton’s latest foray into social and digital media. In recent weeks, the former secretary of state has joined LinkedIn and Instagram. She is also an active Twitter user.
