Socialite Paris Hilton took to Twitter for a throwback photo post commemorating she and pop star Britney Spears' alleged invention of the selfie in 2006.

Many claim that Robert Cornelius, an American photography and lamp entrepreneur, holds the grand distinction of the first-ever selfie, taken in October 1839 in the dawn of photographic invention. His mid-19th Century self-portrait outside his family's Philadelphia lamp store is often credited as the real invention of the selfie.

"11 years ago today, Me & Britney invented the selfie!" tweeted Hilton Sunday evening.

The hotel heiress and the legendary pop star are seen posing and smiling together in the photo that Hilton alleges was taken on Nov. 19, 2006. Several commenters immediately took to Twitter to respond that they think Hilton's claims are quite dubious. 

Several other responses to Hilton's tweet included self-taken photos of Madonna and other historical figures to disprove her claim. But many Twitter users simply used the post to express their love for the "best female collaboration of all time."

"If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it," Hilton told W Magazine in May. "I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera."

W Magazine's story details how Hilton's home includes an "infinite" amount of "framed cellphone mirror selfies" that line her guest bathroom from floor-to-ceiling.
