After sending out her first tweet Monday morning, Lewinsky, who now describes herself as the first person to be "destroyed by the Internet," quickly became a top trending topic on the social media site. Many of the reactions were snide or simply unkind.

For instance…

Lewinsky said she anticipated it.

"There are those who say, Monica, why don't you just shut up? Why don't you just go away?" Lewinsky said at the Forbes 30 Under 30 summit just a few hours after joining Twitter. "They will say it today after this one, my first major public talk ever, and they will say it tomorrow, and the day after that."

Lewinsky appeared unfazed by the venom, judging by her tweet Monday night.
