AOC temporarily leaves Twitter, saying it makes her ‘anxious’

New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Monday on Instagram that she is taking a break from Twitter, saying it makes her feel anxious following her positive COVID-19 diagnosis.

“When I got covid I turned off all my devices, which means I wasn’t really on social media that much or anything like that,” she said.

“Literally, I would go to open the app and I almost felt like, anxious. People like, kind of fight and gossip, and all this other stuff so much,” she added. “But, and there’s a lot of negative negativity on there, but I’ll be back. Don’t worry. Just a break.”

Ocasio-Cortez tested positive for COVID-19 in early January after a trip to Florida. She was fully vaccinated and had received a booster shot.

Her break didn’t last long, however. She was already back less than a day after saying she was taking a break.

The story is both curious and humorous as the progressive Democrat both claims social media makes her anxious, yet she constantly uses it to further her cause.
