Twitter is increasingly becoming the best place to keep up with the two candidates who ran for president this year. Your political leanings will no doubt help you decide whose presence you prefer on the social media platform — President-elect Donald Trump, or the Democrat he defeated, Hillary Clinton.

And while Trump’s peculiar tweets keep coming despite what some might consider more pressing matters at hand — like assembling the people to run the government — Clinton is mostly showing up in our feeds thanks to folks who keep running into her in the woods or out shopping.

A new Twitter feed called HRC In The Wild, and its accompanying hashtag, has sprung up as a way to collect what seems to be a good amount of photos of Clinton and selfies with Clinton. The presidential hopeful was famously spotted hiking with Bill Clinton in the woods near their Chappaqua, N.Y., home on the Thursday after the election. Margot Gerster posted a photo from the encounter on Facebook.

From there, others who came upon Clinton in grocery stores and book shops and, again in the woods, shared their images. The former secretary of state always appeared gracious and smiling despite her admitted grief and anger over losing to Trump.

Longtime Clinton aide Adam Parkhomenko told CNET that he started @HRCintheWild “because everyone seemed to be getting a smile from the photos.”

Because it’s the internet, some of those smiles could come from the work of creative types having fun with Clinton sightings:

But the majority of the posts shared on @HRCintheWild show folks who are genuinely pleased to run into one another:
