"Texts from Hillary" founders Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her office at her invitation on Tuesday and left with maybe the best parting gift possible: An autographed, Hillary-written submission to their popular Tumblr.
"Thanks for the many LOLZ Hillary 'Hillz'" the top American diplomat wrote on the photo montage.
Smith (@ASmith83) posted Clinton's submission via Twitter and captioned it: "I just met Secretary Clinton. She loves the site. Pictures to come. Here's her post she autographed."
"Yes, the submission on their site credited to Secretary Clinton is in fact from her. She wanted to meet the brains behind the site, and they were just in her office about an hour ago," Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines told Yahoo News by email. Lambe and Smith each got a personalized copy of the submission.
Yahoo News spoke with Lambe and Smith when the Tumblr launched about the project."The site is meant to be a compliment to Hillary. Hopefully, everyone gets that," Lambe told us via email.
