With the C-SPAN cameras shut off by House Republican leaders, demonstrating Democrats took to stumping on social media throughout Wednesday's sit-in on the House floor.
Eventually, C-SPAN even picked up some members live streams and used it in place of the GOP-controlled House cameras.
Here's what the Democratic effort on social media looked like:

Joining with @repjohnlewis and dozens of my colleagues for House sit-in for a vote to prevent gun violence. No more silence. This House needs to act. Anything short of a vote is heartless and cowardly. #NoBillNoBreak A photo posted by Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty (@repesty) on
