It’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s 30th birthday today and to celebrate, we want to highlight one of our favorite things about the freshman congresswoman: her tweets. The congresswoman will come for anyone that comes for her — and we love that about her.
Not only is she the youngest woman to have ever been elected into Congress, but she is also one of the best tweeters to have ever graced the platform. She has built a dedicated follower base that, according to The Guardian, has increased by 600% since she took office less than a year ago. As one of the first digital natives to take office, she is truly showing everyone what can be done when millennials are given a position to represent those around them. Sure, she is using her platform to talk about policy and social justice, but she is also sharing her skincare routine and recipes for one-pot noodles — she isn’t just her job.
Ocasio-Cortez is fearless both online and offline about her beliefs in equality for all, sustainability, and progress that benefits everyone and not simply the country’s most wealthy.
