Most Frequently Used Hashtag by Congress: #Trumpcare

Members of Congress used the hashtag #Trumpcare most in 2017, according to a social media analysis by Quorum.

The analysis looked at hashtags the lawmakers used on Facebook and Twitter. Other hashtags that also were popular in legislators’ posts included #aca, #taxreform, and #protectourcare.

The most viral Twitter post from a Republican legislator was from Sen. Bob Corker in October, when he compared the White House to an adult day-care center. The tweet has been shared more than 148,000 times.

The analysis reported that the most popular tweet from a non-Republican legislator was from Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. The senator posted a tweet from the women’s march the day after Trump’s inauguration that has been shared more than 450,000 times.

Republicans are slightly more frequent users of Instagram, posting an average of 49 pictures per year, while Democrats post an average of 47, according to the analysis.

Democrats are more active on Twitter, the analysis found — they average almost twice as many tweets in 2017 as Republicans.
