WASHINGTON (WABC) -- 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.

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