Pew: Though not especially productive in passing bills, the 116th Congress set new marks for social media use

Pew (PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW!): Though not especially productive in passing bills, the 116th Congress set new marks for social media use. “Voting members of the 116th Congress collectively produced more than 2.2 million tweets and Facebook posts in 2019 and 2020. That means the median member of Congress produced more than 3,000 posts across their profiles on the two social media platforms during this span. In total, the 116th Congress produced roughly 738,000 more social media posts than the 114th Congress of 2015-2016, the first one for which the Center has data.”
