Donald Trump is a socially vibrant man who would stop at nothing to reach his numerous followers on Twitter, no matter what negative thoughts we read from his ol’ school critics.
What’s life without freedom, anyway?
When Mr. President says he loves Twitter, there are countless reasons to that, and one of them is because he’s the realest and “unpresidented” leader the world has ever seen.
In an interview with CNBC, Twitter COO Anthony Noto said last Thursday that the company “loves” Donald Trump for his addiction to the social media network.
“We love that he’s using the platform,” Noto said. “He’s built greater awareness of the platform and the power of the platform.”
It’s a verifiable fact that Trump has over 25 million followers on his personal account and through the POTUS account which boasts of 15.4 million followers.
Despite his huge success on social media, the media says Mr. President suffers from TV obsession but the 70-year-old thinks differently. He sees it as a faster and easier way of keeping in touch with his adoring fans.
“Two years ago, if President Trump tweeted at 3 a.m. on the East Coast and you woke up at 6 a.m. on the West Coast, you would never see that tweet — it would be at the bottom of your timeline,” Noto said.
“Today that’s injected to the top based on your profile and your interests and machine learning, and so you can see that tweet today.
“That’s great for us being able to show what’s happening in the world and better than everyone else,” the head of Twitter Ventures who also managed Goldman Sachs.
Mr. Trump seem to be losing sleep over his tweets and at times, he does so in a haste but with all clarity of purpose – being the only true version of himself.
Regrettably, the former TV personality gets his facts wrong, sometimes, but who cares? People love his Twitter-active side.
Notwithstanding the huge criticisms against his life on Twitter, our dear Trump says: “I’d rather just let that build up and just keep it @realDonaldTrump, it’s working — and the tweeting, I thought I’d do less of it, but I’m covered so dishonestly by the press — so dishonestly — that I can put out Twitter.
“…And it’s not 140, it’s now 140, 280 — I can go bing bing bing and I just keep going and they put it on and as soon as I tweet it out — this morning on television, Fox — “Donald Trump, we have breaking news.”
During his campaigns, Mr. President enjoyed posting about his opponent Mrs. Hillary Clinton, who he once referred to as “a witch.” During those tensed moments, he also wrote about former president Barack Obama, some thought-provoking illegal deals and most importantly, the ever-controversial email leaks.
People should know the truth in other to attain true freedom. That’s exactly what Mr. President thinks about his tweets. Circulation of distorted information and an unending mis-education of the masses should be considered a crime against humanity.
A report from Fortune quotes Trump as saying in an interview, “If I tell something to the papers and they don’t write it accurately, it’s really bad — they can’t do much when you tweet it and I’m careful about, it’s very precise, actually it’s very, very precise — and it comes out breaking news, we have breaking news — ya know, it’s funny.
“If I did a press release and if I put it out, it wouldn’t get nearly — people would see it the following day — if I do a news conference, that’s a lot of work.”
Twitter is clearly working for America’s president even though his aides think he should stay away from the social media for good.
According to The Washington Post’s Friday report, Jeb Bush told the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas that he thinks it’ll be a wise decision for Trump to stop tweeting.
“…When he tweets he also gives our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights,” the former presidential candidate added.
“These things matter. We are living in a dangerous world. He is the leader of the free world.”
