Caitlyn Jenner joined Twitter on June 1, the same day she debuted on the cover of Vanity Fair. In the four hours that followed her first tweet, Jenner amassed 1 million followers — hitting the mark faster than anyone in history. (Sorry, previous record holder, Barack Obama.) Since that first day, Jenner has used her account sparingly but wisely. She’s championed human rights, posted photos of her family and become Twitter BFF with Laverne Cox. Ahead, Jenner’s best moments on social media.
