Settling into the first 100 days of Donald Trump's administration, you might be looking for ways to stay politically engaged when you're not necessarily able to take up full-time activism (which doesn't quite pay the bills). If that's you, good news: There are plenty of politically active social media accounts to follow that will help you keep resisting and persisting throughout the Trump presidency. Taking part in the democratic process may not be something a lot of people are used to doing, but if you're anything like most Americans, you're practically an expert at social media — and you can easily leverage those skills in an effort to keep fighting the good fight.
Politicians are known to use social media to their advantage; even the White House got a Tumblr in 2015. Then there's Trump's Twitter account, which often reads like the inner monologue of a self-absorbed teenager at a mock UN conference. Scrolling through his feed is a unique experience, but I would characterize it as similar to being hit in the face with an inflatable exclamation point, over and over and over until you have to cleanse your mind with The Washington Post.
But I digress. The point is that social media has influenced the political sphere as much as it has any other area of modern life, so it's a great way to stay engaged with our democracy. With four long years of Trump's administration stretching ahead, it's more important than ever to make your voice known beyond just voting (although if you do only one thing, voting is probably the most important). The good news is that it appears to be working at least some of the time. Here are seven social media accounts to follow to stay politically engaged this spring.
