The social superstar, 29, responded to a tweet shared New Year’s Day by Glitch CEO Anil Dash, who applauded Ocasio-Cortez and other successful names from The Bronx.
Dash wrote in the post: ‘One thing is already clear: between @iamcardib, @desusnice, @THEKIDMERO & @AOC, 2019 is gonna be the Bronx’s year. Calling it right now.’
Aside from Ocasio-Cortez, who became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in November, Dash gave a shout out to rapper Cardi B, who is nominated for five Grammys this year, as well as comedians and talk show duo Desus Nice and The Kid Mero.

Ocasio-Cortez joked: ‘YUP. [The Bronx] is seizing the throne, now that Brooklyn has been taken over by bespoke quiche spots or whatever you weird L train people did down there.’
Ocasio-Cortez has been speaking her mind on her social media platform.
On Friday, she clapped back at conservative critics after controversy arose from an unearthed video of the congresswoman recreating an famous dance scene from the film, The Breakfast Club.
‘I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous,’ she wrote.
‘Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too! Have a great weekend everyone :)’
And just last week, Ocasio-Cortez fired back on Twitter against Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill who described her as a ‘thing’ and a ‘bright shiny new object’ in an interview with CNN.
Ocasio-Cortez took to her page last Saturday to express her disappointment over the outgoing senator’s remarks.
The socialist firebrand said: ‘Not sure why fmr Sen. McCaskill keeps going on TV to call me a “thing” and “shiny object,” but it’s pretty disappointing.
‘McCaskill promised she’d “100% back Trump up” on his anti-immigrant rhetoric & lost. In MO, almost all progressive ballot issues won.’
McCaskill replied on Twitter insisting she is rooting for her.
‘In the same interview I said I “wish you well and hope you hang the moon,”‘ McCaskill wrote.
‘My point was that results, not rhetoric is what really matters. Most folks are very cynical about all the promises, when they aren’t followed by real accomplishments. I look forward to cheering yours!’
