Wanna see how an insurgent, anti-establishment candidate can use snark, personality, and a combative spirit to advance the political dialog? Stop following Cheeto Hitler and start following the youngest Congresswoman in US history, the amazing, delightful, on fire Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (previously).
ACO's social media is a nonstop riot of the Congresswoman-elect making dinner and talking about cash bail, chilling in sweats and doing a Q&A with Justice Democrats; making Sarah Palin look exactly as stupid as Sarah Palin is; zinging the fuck out of Trump and his enablers; slaughtering Republican Congressjerks unwise enough to come at her; and dropping truth bombs.
As The Mary Sue's Vivian Kane says, Ocasio-Cortez is "s lifting the veil on an institution that can seem entirely untouchable by those not born into a family or community that already has access to that world established."
It's truly the contratrumpian model for political social media.

Of course, with all the touching and such, bar soap […]
Paralysis by analysis. It’s the phenomenon that happens when you’re so stuck on thinking through all the ramifications of your actions that you don’t actually take action in the first place. That can happen with all this free time you’re spending stuck inside your house. With literally every home-bound option available to you, it’s easy […]
