Here's how you can add Gerry Adams on Snapchat

Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams announced on Wednesday evening that he has set up a Snapchat account.

The controversial political figure has long been active on Twitter, using the social media platform to show his whimsical side. Adams has also been known to cross the line on Twitter, taking criticism in 2016 for his use of the n-word in reference to the film Django Unchained.

In a statement on Twitter announcing his migration to Snapchat, Adams wrote: "The team tells me Snapchat is where all the cool people hangout. So here it goes. Add me as we build up to the Sinn Féin Ard Fheis this weekend and my Presidential Speech on Saturday @ 8.30pm."
