"The top tip, I think, is really to be yourself and to really write your own tweets so that people know it's you talking", Ocasio-Cortez told ABC News after emerging from class in January.

"At the end of the day we all need to treat each other as colleagues with respect", said Rep. Barr in front of a crowd at a Madison County Golden Corral on Monday.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose social media abilities allowed her 2018 grass root congressional campaign to flourish, said Sunday she has deleted her personal Facebook page, adding social media is a "public health risk to everybody".

The 29-year-old also said that she's trying to limit her of social media consumption to during the week and tries to stay logged off during the weekends. "I am a proponent of a two-state solution".

Ocasio-Cortez is one of a number of freshman lawmakers who have questioned traditional Democratic support for Israel. "I grew up with that Yankees dream team, like, [Derek] Jeter, [Jorge] Posada, like, Mariano Rivera", she said.
