The expected announcement of Hillary Clinton's Democratic presidential bid is flaming up social media where pundits are making fun of the interest itself, USA Today reports on the growing Twitterverse speculation.

Clinton's own Twitter account has thus far remained silent over the event but others are enjoying the worst kept secret in politics this month.

"Pre-announcing your pre-announcement is the new forming an exploratory committee," tweeted The New York Times' Alex Burns of what many are saying is Clinton's long-awaited announcement set for Sunday.

Noted Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics: "Fifteen sources close to Hillary Clinton say her announcement video will involve Claymation, vaudeville, seltzer & 101 dalmatians."

Political reporter Sasha Issenberg also offered a little humorous sarcasm amid the cyber-hype: "BREAKING: Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy on a day of the week and will use computers to do it."

Some are suggesting the former first lady and secretary of state will open her 2016 campaign with a video posted online Sunday followed by a trip into the presidential caucus state of Iowa, noted The Hill, which cited reported in the New York Daily News and CNN that noon was the target time for her rollout.

Added The Hill of her timing: "A Sunday announcement from Clinton could step on the toes of another likely White House hopeful — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is expected to launch his own presidential campaign on Monday evening in Miami."

Obama political guru David Axelrod signaled the impatience of many on the left that Clinton get her show on the road, so to speak. He tweeted Thursday: "Wish HRC would announce, if only because I'm so ready to stop getting these infernal emails hawkIng Ready for Hillary chachkes!"

Amid all of the speculation, USA Today noted that it was a lease Clinton signed on her Brooklyn campaign headquarters that offered a clue to her timing, triggering a 15-day countdown related to campaign finance law. "Federal Election Commission rules state candidates have that much time before they need to file the necessary paperwork," USA Today said.
