- Photo snagged from Colin Powell's Facebook.
- Colin Powell took bedroom selfies before Myspace was invented.
You might have noticed it was "Throwback Thursday" when you noticed all your friends and family posting nostalgic photos of themselves. Retired four-star Army General Colin Powell decided to share a selfie he took 60 years ago on his Facebook page. The caption reads "Throwback Thursday - I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen! The Ellen DeGeneres Show." This might be technically the first selfie in American history. I could be wrong.
