Freshman U.S. Representative Jeff Jackson (D) has always made social media a big part of his public persona, but he never guessed it would explode like it has in recent months. He regularly posts brief updates on the big stories with behind-the-scenes details and a focus on explaining issues.

The 14th District representative regularly sees posts with millions of views and hundreds, if not thousands of interactions. Jackson explains why he spends so much time on social media, why it's catching on with a key group of potential voters and where his political future could lead him next.
