If nothing, else Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows how to use social media.
She used social media to take down a longtime incumbent Democrat Representative in the primary when no one thought she had a chance and then used it to her advantage in the general election.
Since taking office, she has used her social media account to effectively communicate with her constituents. She’s often entertaining, even if she is entirely wrong on well, most things that actually matter.
Her success on social media has already has an effect on Democrats. Why else would Democrats such as Elizabeth Warren embarrass herself on Instagram while drinking a beer or Beto Instagram his trip to the dentist? They’ve all seen the success Ocasio-Cortez has had social media.
Now, the freshman congresswoman will school Democrats on Twitter. This is a smart move, this is where most people are and if you’re going to connect with your constituents, you have to be able to meet them where they are.
Perhaps after Ocasio-Cortez teaches her fellow Dems how to use social media, they can teach her basic economics.
