Occasional-Cortex Reveals She’s Cutting Back On Social Media For Her Health

DW: Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced on Sunday that she is no longer using Facebook and is cutting back on all social media for health reasons associated with being too engaged with social media.

“I actually think that social media poses a public health risk to everybody,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “There are amplified impacts for young people, particularly children under the age of 3 with screen time. But I think it has a lot of effects on older people. I think it has effects on everybody. Increased isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, escapism.”

“I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “And Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time. I gave up on it.”

“Like every once in a while, you’ll see me hop on Twitter on the weekends, but for the most part, I take consumption of content, when it comes to consumption and reading, I take the weekends off,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “And so I’m not, like, scrolling through trying to read everything online that journalists are writing on weekends. I try to do that during the workweek.”

While many of Ocasio-Cortez’s critics and fans believe that her social media game is her greatest strength, Ocasio-Cortez has become a frequent punching bag on social media: Many of the things that she has posted are misleading, offensive, or both. Here are just a few examples:

  2. Curing people of social media addiction could be a profitable business. There are clinics for alcoholics that use aversion therapy – the patients take some kind of nausea inducing drug. I’m not sure if they then do a lot of in-clinic drinking or what but they quickly begin to associate drinking with gut wrenching nausea. A lot of puking is involved.

    After a lot of this for several days they don’t even want to smell alcohol let alone drink it.

    A social media addiction clinic to kick social media could work I suppose.

    Advertise on Facebook. Haha!

  3. Krazy Kotex just needs to surround herself with a smarter group of people like any random 1st-grade class attending either a private or home school!

  8. Too tempting for her to say something stupid on FB; which in turn reflects badly on the Party.
    Sweetie, I believe that ship left the harbor some time ago.
