Like I stumbled on strangers and found interesting people online, first on online chats (web 1.0), and then on Twitter (web 2.0), have a feeling the younger generation is doing the same on PUBG and Fortnite. They meet up and play together! PUBG is the new Twitter, it looks like. My son makes new friends and plays PUBG together with them!
And so, here’s a politician who has *got* this already! U.S. congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dropped in on a Donkey Kong 64 Twitch charity stream! Around the 50-hour mark, she not only dropped in to chat with H.Bomberguy, aka Harry Brewis, who had streamed the Nintendo 64 game on Twitch (she said, “Nintendo 64 is the best system of them all”), but also spoke about discrimination and economic hardship experienced by the trans community.

This is a remarkably adept use of media!
More on her superior communication skills:
“No one shifts the Overton Window (the range of ideas that are at any given time considered worthy of public discussion) on any subject without strong communications skills, and Ocasio-Cortez is ninja-level in that department!”
