Pew: Charting Congress on Social Media in the 2016 and 2020 Elections

Pew (PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW PEW!): Charting Congress on Social Media in the 2016 and 2020 Elections. “The 2020 election occurred in a cultural and political climate that was vastly different than that of the 2016 race. The unique nature of each election cycle was also visible in the ways members of Congress used Facebook and Twitter to engage with the public in the months before and after election day. Most obviously, the 2020 election was much more online than the preceding presidential cycle. Lawmakers shared tens of thousands more posts – and received orders of magnitude more engagement from other social media users – than was the case in 2016.”
