Between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and countless other sites, young people spend much of their lives scrolling through social media.
It comes as no surprise, then, that many politicians are looking to social media to get their message out in the hopes of gaining the coveted millennial vote. Unfortunately, this election season has been filled with more passive aggressive tweets than it has been substance and policy.
