New elected members shared their experiences on social media like never before.

There were other progressive newcomers, such as Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who never hesitated to use Twitter to reject the critics (or the traditional rules of the House) with the clear purpose of announcing the arrival of a new generation of politicians.
People's Party representative Dan Crenshaw tweeted his New Year's resolutions.
