Minnesota State Senator Matt Little is tearing it up on TikTok, the lively social media platform.He has the likely biggest national following for any politician on the platform
TikTok is just one of many ways Minnesota State Senator Matt Little has excited and engaged youth in elections and governance. As a senator, mayor and councilman, he has been a fixture at local graduate celebrations for students from both of Lakeville’s two high schools. As he’s been on the cutting edge of engaging young people, he’s been a champion at seeking bipartisan agreement on Minnesota’s issues.
From the StarTribune:
Little, a lawyer in his first term in the Legislature, is one of a few who has connected with TikTok users in and out of his district, some on the other side of the world. With more than 130,000 followers, the DFL legislator believes he might be the most followed politician on the app.
“I’ve always had this methodology or goal that I could speak to people of all ages, on whatever platform they wanted to speak to me on. It started when I was on the City Council 10 years ago,” Little said. “If someone wrote me a letter, I wrote them a letter; give me a call, I give them a call.”
Little’s TikTok handle is @littlesenator. If you are not on TikTok, you can see a sample of what he does on this Tweet of one of his videos. Little’s humor is on display on his Twitter feed, too.
