The tweet quoted the NY congresswoman seconding the nomination of Bernie Sanders, who amassed more than 1,000 delegates in his ultimately unsuccessful primary bid.

Convention rules stipulate that any candidate receiving delegate votes at the convention be formally endorsed for the party's nomination prior to ballots being cast. She did not mention by name any of the signature policies that she and Sanders support, including the Green New Deal or Medicare for All, nor did she namecheck Joe Biden or President Donald Trump.

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., accompanied by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., left, takes the stage at campaign stop at the Whittemore Center Arena at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, N.H. Choosing a presidential candidate based primarily on loathing the alternative is not the strongest of electoral strategies.

That she nominated Sanders at a convention created to formally nominate Biden, however, caused a bit of confusion on Twitter among those who tuned in.

"I think it's really important that we rally behind our Democratic nominee in November", she said while speaking on "The View" talk show.

Many expected Ocasio-Cortez to use her time much more dramatically, to say something more specific or substantive, especially after she tweeted a poem about the importance of using a minute for all it's worth.

The company later deleted the tweet and issued out a correction very early on Wednesday morning, almost three-and-a-half hours after it had published the mistake.

The network's offending tweet said that "in one of the shortest speeches of the DNC, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez did not endorse Joe Biden".

The objective of the convention is to bring Democrats and Biden-supporting Republicans together from across the ideological spectrum in a united push to defeat Trump.

Some on social media were confused by her nomination statement, however, curious as to whether it meant she wouldn't be supporting the party's nominee Joe Biden.

She described the correcting tweet as an attempt to "slip under the radar" and asked the network for corrective action.
