If Ocasio-Cortez wants any advice on wooing the Glastonbury crowd, she can call on the leader of the opposition, who has said how much he admires her. And Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time. Take the word of US representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who went on Yahoo News' Skullduggery podcast today to talk about, among other things, how an outrageous amount of power is concentrated in the hands of just a few large technology companies.
Ocasio-Cortez is still active on social media, posting to her own Twitter and Instagram accounts, but during the interview with "Skullduggery", she explained she's revamped her lifestyle when it comes to social media use.
"I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama with Obama's vice president", said Ocasio-Cortez.
"You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", she said.
"Another hope would maybe be Jon Snow and Daenerys [Targaryen] just take the whole thing and they build a second [throne]", added Ocasio-Cortez when asked for a slightly less idealistic option. The video shows New York's twin towers burning and includes bits of Omar's comments that have drawn criticism, especially "some people did something" on 9/11.

Disney announced on their official Twitter account that all of the Star Wars films will be added to the service. The Mandalorian takes place in the time between the end of the original trilogy and The Force Awakens .
After a rolling series of scandals involving the misuse of personal data, hateful content and misinformation, many Facebook users have also changed the way they use the platform.
In any case, podcast host Michael Isikoff made the obvious point: "So what if it was only 15,000 jobs?"
The freshman congresswoman, who became a rising star in the party after scoring a shocking victory against a high ranking Democrat previous year, said she hasn't picked a 2020 candidate to support. "Does that sound like something that's going to happen..."
"I'm very supportive of Bernie's run".
"I really don't know", she said.
