Ms Clark seemed to be getting among the action, posting to her fans that she did indeed know how to screenshot, and boasted about how she had already snapped a picture of the morning in New York City.

Ms Clark has been in the third-highest UN position since 2009, and announced her candidacy for the position of Secretary-General of the United Nations in April this year.
