A freshman congresswoman from the New York City area is helping some of her Democratic colleagues use Twitter.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who is very vocal on social media, will be teaching a lesson on how to use Twitter more effectively.

Her social savviness was especially apparent when she responded to the controversy around a college dance videowith a light-hearted tweet.

She will teach the class alongside Representative Jim Himes of Connecticut.

Ocasio-Cortez represents New York's 14th district, and at the age of 29, she's the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress.
