Although they joked about which platform is preferred (Bush is a fan of Instagram, Clinton is an avid Tweeter, and both have Facebook pages), they used the mediums in a light-hearted yet relevant way—and made headlines in the process.

Wonder if this social media buzz has anything to do with than ranking?

Keeping audience members engaged while having fun doesn’t sound that bad, does it? And lets face it: If these two have time to create posts and update feeds, so do you.

(Just for the record, #PresidentialGrammers and #PresidentialTweeters are our new favorite hashtags.)
