Even some of her Democratic colleagues think that the newest, youngest-ever member of Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is getting too much attention in the social media sphere.
She has accounted for more Twitter interactions in a month than the top five media companies combined, according to CrowdTangle data, reports Axios.
But what, after all is wrong with the idea that a member of Congress knows how to embrace social media and use it to her great advantage? There is nothing wrong with that, and in fact, anyone who wants to lead our government needs that skill today. Just look at Donald Trump, a born-rich trust fund baby who would never have been able to rise the way he has, if he didn’t know how to play with his Twitter.
Sure, Ocasio-Cortez’ skill my scare the pants off of the old guard, but that just means the old guard is finished.
Keep going Alexandria!
