From The Washington Post:

To political junkies whose social network of choice is Twitter and who haven't touched their LinkedIn profile in years, Hillary Rodham Clinton joining the Internet's "professional" social network on Thursday might seem a little weird. Does anyone care she's on LinkedIn? Is there any political benefit to be reaped from it? Is it even still a thing?

There might not be a strong overlap between LinkedIn users and people in politics or media, but the site has 115 million users in the United States, according to the company, and 28 percent of all Internet users are on it, compared with 23 percent on Twitter, per Pew, so yes, it's still a thing.
