Thanks! I think that’s exactly right. FWIW, Democrats hosted a session on how to do better at social media with AOC and another member with a strong following. So I do think she’s having an impact. Social media has a ton of trade-offs, but one thing it can do — if used well—is make governing more transparent and accessible to all of us.

Democracy is pretty cool. We should try it some time. Voting rights, science policy, political communication and grassroots activism.
