Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview Sunday that she will no longer be using Facebook because social media poses a “public health risk,” though she will retain her accounts on Twitter and Instagram.

Ocasio-Cortez has used social media significantly to her political advantage thus far, but she announced Sunday in an interview with the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” that she will no longer be using Facebook, according to WaPo.

“I personally gave up Facebook, which was kind of a big deal because I started my campaign on Facebook. And Facebook was my primary digital organizing tool for a very long time. I gave up on it,” Ocasio-Cortez said to Yahoo News.
