Even after losing a long, mean-spirited campaign to become the most powerful woman in history, life goes on for Hillary Rodham Clinton. And Twitter is out to document what that looks like.

The hashtag #HRCintheWild and Twitter feed of the same handle are becoming the go-to way to keep tabs on the failed Democratic nominee for the presidency. Both began popping up over the long holiday weekend in the United States.

Longtime Clinton aide Adam Parkhomenko says he started the account on the suggestion of an NYU student and Hillary supporter.

"I put it together because everyone seemed to be getting a smile from the photos," Parkhomenko said in an email.
