Gerry Adams has always had a seriously unique online personality, which for the most part has been shared via a quirky Twitter account documenting the mundane with the meaningful.
In a bid to stay ahead of the curve and get down with the kids he has now joined Snapchat. Yes, really.
Can we expect pictures of him in the bath with his rubber ducks? Only time will tell...
The team tells me Snapchat is where all the cool people hangout. So here it goes. Add me as we build up to the Sinn Féin Ard Fheis this weekend and my Presidential Speech on Saturday @ 8.30pm. To start getting updates, scan the snapcode or search GerryAdamsIrl #SFAF17 pic.twitter.com/bAGoUDKoDf

Should someone else tell him Instagram stories are the way to go, or should we?
