Similar to a yoke in a sence that like to an ox it's a way of guiding somebody to do good with their life. It would be popularly marketed with something like #mitzvah and @superjew, it's basically a good deed but with more value to the soul. Also mentioned constantly in the Jewish world alongside words like Hashem, kosher, Bernie, and Wall Street.
Already have too much money? Do a mitzvah! Donate to some random charity!

It was fun to volunteer with my yeshivah for the local homeless shelter! #mitzvah #BaruchHashem #BecauseWeAreLakewoodSoWeAre etterThanAll

Those people from Lakewood think they are so great because they worked for a rushed hour to help the homeless while shitting on any other organization that helped out even though they put WAY more effort! Why don't they do the mitzvah of learning to STFU!
