“Did you hear? I joined @Snapchat! For daily updates & behind-the-scenes footage follow: senatorrandpaul on the photo sharing app. I'm sending my first snap tonight,” he posted on his Facebook page for his reelection campaign.

The tool allows its users to send photos to a selected group of followers, which can be viewed for only a matter of seconds. The photo then disappears.
