White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway is interviewed during the Getty Images

White House advisor and counselor to the Twitter-loving president Kellyanne Conway had some sage advice for college students Thursday.

"First of all, don't live online, live in real time," Conway said at the Conservative Political Action Conference, recommending college students spend less time on Twitter when asked how conservative students can "survive" at liberal universities.

“I’m astonished how many people live online, on Facebook, Twitter, texting, emails.Remember: It's a mode of communication," she continued. "It is not communication — it's not real life."

Conway recommended students have real conversations with others, join or start clubs and write letters to the editor — anything so "people see something other than the top of your head," she said.


While Conway praised President Donald Trump — and shared tidbits of lesser known facts about the 45th president — she did not mention his Twitter habits during her time on the CPAC stage.

The president's powerful thumbs have even prompted some companies to take out insurance against potential public relations crises, after Trump's tweets have resulted in billions of dollars of losses for corporations like Lockheed Martin.

Conway took the stage Thursday morning; other members of Trump's cabinet, as well as Vice President Mike Pence and the president himself, will make appearances later Thursday and Friday.
