Pretty impressive for a freshman in Congress. Bernie is impressive also.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was more tweeted about this year than Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, according to a new Twitter blog post.

The social media platform revealed Monday that the freshman Democratic representative from New York was the fourth most tweeted about politician worldwide in 2019, putting her behind only President Donald Trump, former President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

But she was two spots ahead of Vermont Sen. Sanders, the sixth most tweeted about politician of 2019, and three places ahead of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was the eighth most tweeted about politician despite being the frontrunner in the Democratic 2020 primary race, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average.

But, while she has more followers than Biden, Ocasio-Cortez has managed to rank as the fourth most tweeted about politician of the year despite having significantly fewer followers than Clinton and Sanders, who can boast of 26 million and 8.8 million respectively.

This could be thanks to the fact Ocasio-Cortez’s tweets regularly go viral, picking up tens of thousands, or sometimes hundreds of thousands, of likes on the platform.


Clinton shouldn’t even be in the mix.
