Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio became the first senator to launch his official Flipboard account. Flipboard is a mobile app which allows people to easily discover and share content on issues they care about. Rubio also recently launched his Vine, a mobile app for sharing short, looping videos.
These accounts offer new ways for constituents to stay informed and engaged with what Rubio is doing in Washington and around Florida. Through Rubio’s new Flipboard account, constituents can read about some of his favorite topics and stay updated on the immigration debate and efforts to grow our economy and expand opportunity. You can also check out Rubio’s first Vine, a behind the scenes look at an interview he was doing with FOX News.
“I am excited about the new additions to our social media portfolio. Staying engaged and hearing feedback from my constituents is important to me,” said Rubio. “Whether it is my weekly mailbox videos where I answer letters and emails from constituents or reading suggestions to improve the immigration bill on our website, it reminds me – and my staff – of what is most important to folks in Florida. My office is always looking for new ways to engage with our constituents, and Flipboard and Vine provide Floridians with even more ways to stay connected to our office.”
