After getting some heat for her Twitter avatar featuring the iconic photo of her staring at her Blackberry while heading to Libya, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has finally changed it.
While some were critical of her for keeping it after the email scandal surrounding her, Clinton didn’t say she was changing the avatar because of that, but instead, to draw attention to International Women’s Day.

However, the Blackberry photo that gave birth to the “Texts from Hillary” meme wasn’t totally wiped away:
During an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning, Rep. Trey Gowdey, R-South Carolina, said there are “huge gaps” in Clinton’s emails that challenge her credibility. He specifically pointed to the Blackberry photo.
“We have no emails from that trip,” Gowdy said. “It strains credibility to believe that if you’re on your way to … to discuss Libyan policy that there’s not a single document that’s been turned over to Congress.”
