Out of touch? Congress? Well, maybe. It says a lot that a young U.S. Representative was teaching a class in social media to her colleagues today. Twitter only started in 2006, but thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, some of her new colleagues are finally catching up. She taught a Twitter class this morning to all member of the Democratic Caucus.
Class was in session this morning! I was thrilled to offer some insights on Twitter and social media to my. colleagues this morning.

The new congresswoman has 2.44 million followers on Twitter and often uses the platform to tweet news, respond to critics and push out videos. One of her biggest posts. showing her dancing into her new office was viewed more than 20 million times.
