Catching Pokemon on Google Maps, converting the heritage Nokia 3310 into a Windows phone with a 41MP camera, and even Colgate University's School of Dentistry – we see what you did there – were just the tip of the iceberg of yesterday's April Fools' jokes.

In a hilarious move from former US President Bill Clinton, he tweeted a photo of himself spoofing the famous Texts From Hillary meme, wearing sunglasses and holding a (rather huge) iPad, writing "I'm following my leader!"

And then he made that photo his Twitter avatar, to imitate his wife Hillary Clinton's. She sportingly played along.

The original photo-turned-meme Texts From Hillary was taken in October 2011 while the former Secretary of State was checking her BlackBerry during a flight from Malta to Libya, which was in civil war.

The photo became an Internet sensation and gave life to the Texts From Hillary tumblr. Both Bill and Hillary have since embraced social media and it's very refreshing to see that they have humour thrown in too.
