For over a year, 17 LBJ School student researchers spent over 900 hours collecting more than 1 million data points on how Members of Congress use social media. To their surprise, they discovered that these elected officials used social media most often to publicize their positions on policy issues, not for self-promotion, campaigning or media appearances, as the researchers originally thought.
