The Axios study noted that each politician tweets at a different daily rate. Trump shares roughly nine tweets per day, compared to Ocasio-Cortez, who sends about six tweets a day, and Harris, who tweets nearly 10 times each day.

Ocasio-Cortez has made waves nationally since she scored a shocking primary victory last year to unseat longtime Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.). The self-identified democratic socialist went on to become the youngest woman ever elected to the House.

She has regularly garnered national attention and gone viral on social media for her progressive policy positions and her use of Twitter to respond to critics and share her views.
