"Text From Hillary" ends after single awesome week

textsfromhillaryclinton:

It’s been an overwhelming—and hilarious—week for us here at Texts from Hillary (TFH). What started as a joke at the bar between two friends turned into a national conversation about Secretary Clinton and went as far as talks about 2016.

After a week that included 32 posts, 83,000 shares on Facebook, 8,400 Twitter followers, over 45K Tumblr followers, news stories around the world, Renee Montagne from Morning Edition saying “ROFL,” a Maureen Dowd column, and a tweet from ?uest Love, we think it’s time to stop while we are ahead.

As far as memes go – it has gone as far as it can go. Is it really possible to top a submission from the Secretary herself? No. But then when you get to text with her in real life – it’s just over. At least for us. But we have no doubt it will live on with all of you on the Internet.

The site will stay up but we won’t be posting anything new here. You can follow us on Twitter (@ASmith83, @Sllambe) and Tumblr (Stacy at ImWithKanye and Adam’s work account, Public Campaign Action Fund).

Thanks for all the LOLz. We truly appreciate all the support.

It turns out that memes really do come true.

-Stacy and Adam

Happy to see that they went out on top.

Well played.

Texting with Secretary Hillary Clinton.

(Proof of her submission.) (via: Stacy & Adam)

We reached out to Philippe Reines, a Senior Adviser to Hillary Clinton, who confirms that this post on the Texts From Hillary Tumblr was in fact credited to Secretary Clinton:

Yes, the submission credited to Secretary Clinton is in fact from her.  She also just had the creators of the site in her office about an hour ago.

And now we have the photo to confirm as well! Congrats guys. 

UPDATE: The Ryan Gosling one was her favorite (via The Huffington Post).

So, so cool. Way to, Adam and Stacy.

Amazing.

Not that you needed any further proof of how amazing Hillary Clinton is. This is why I adore her.

The Secretary of State of Cool.
