Cory Booker Is Tweeting Everyone (Including the Haters) on Midterm Election Day

No politician does social media like New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker. After serving a year in the U.S. Senate to fill the seat left vacant by the late N.J. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, Booker is seeking a full six-year term on Tuesday, and he’s pulling out all the social media stops. The former Newark mayor has long been known for his lively Twitter presence, frequently telling followers to "DM" him so he can give them a quick phone call, offering to shovel their 65-year-old father’s driveway, or sending out an open invitation to Newark residents displaced by Hurricane Sandy to chill at his apartment, eat mac & cheese, and watch his Spider-Man DVDs. It's no surprise, then, that Booker's Twitter feed on Election Day is a full-on display of interactive voter outreach and engagement, breaking down the stuffy, button-up barrier between politicians and the people they’re serving.

Are you a New Jersey resident who voted for him? You’ll get a virtual hug. Did you vote for the other guy? No problem — Booker loves you, too! And if you have no idea who to vote for or even where to find Booker’s platform, tweet at him and you may just receive an unexpected cellphone call.

Here's how voter outreach should be on Election Day — Cory Booker-style.
