- Paris Hilton took to Twitter to post a selfie that she had taken with Britney Spears a whole 14 years ago
- The selfie was taken before the advent of social media platforms and many regard Paris Hilton to be one of the original influencers
- Tweeps replied to the post with praise and many appreciate how Paris has always managed to stay relevant
Paris Hilton has been famous since her youth, which she and Britney Spears have in common. The two stars remain icons of the early 2000s and Paris recently took to Twitter to share a selfie that the two of them took before selfies were really 'a thing'.
Paris posted a selfie that she told fans she and Britney had 'invented' and taken 14 years ago. This was before phones had front-facing cameras on their phones or even used the word 'selfie'.
Fans loved that Paris shared the moment and also understood how iconic it was. Paris is widely regarded in the media world as being one of the original influencers, or simply fame for fame's sake.
Paris wrote in her caption:
14 years ago, @britneyspears and I invented the selfie ❤️ #LegendsOnly
Most replies were from fans of the two icons and along the lines of:

@3rcc4org: "Replies saying Paris never 'invented' the selfie must be fun at parties sksksks"
@JonnyLawrence10: "People in the replies to this questioning the use of the term ‘inventing’..."
