Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a social media sensation, is helping school other Democratic lawmakers on how to appear more authentic on platforms like Twitter.
The 29-year-old Democrat from New York and Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., will give lessons “on the most effective ways to engage constituents on Twitter and the importance of digital storytelling,” USA Today reported Wednesday.
The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee is hosting the session Thursday. Representatives from Twitter and the House Administration Committee will also be on hand for the training.
Himes, who has 76,500 Twitter followers, told the news outlet that some older members of Congress are “pretty clueless” about social media.
