Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton started a Pinterest account Tuesday, promising "Granddaughter gift ideas, hairstyle inspiration, favorite moments, and some other things."

Clinton had more than 800 followers by Tuesday afternoon. The page shows the candidate's softer side, with family photos, "women who inspire" and highlights of being a grandmother.

In February, GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul's (R-Ky.) campaign created a fake Pinterest account for Clinton, going after her on Benghazi and Democratic losses in the 2014 elections. Pinterest took it down because it violated their rules forbidding users who "impersonate or misrepresent [their] affiliation with any person or entity."

Clinton has long been on Facebook and Twitter and just recently joined Instagram, where she joked about her love of pantsuits.
