According to Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s Twitter profile, it is easy for followers to recognize which messages were personally written by her.
“Tweets from Hillary signed –H,” the page states.
Assuming this is still the case, many Twitter users were confused by the timing and language of one recently published post.
May #ErikaPR bring enough rain to end the drought, but cuidado con los vientos. ¡Pensando en ustedes, Puerto Rico! -H

Response to the tweet, which was reportedly posted at 1:43 a.m. local time, was mixed.
A few responded to her message with a Spanish expression of gratitude.
Other Spanish reactions were less friendly, however, including one user’s derogatory description of Clinton as less than fluent in the language…

@HillaryClinton you’re a phony!

Motivation aside, others found it difficult to believe that Clinton was awake, speaking Spanish, and tweeting at nearly 2 a.m. during a busy primary campaign.
