Trump’s Use Of Twitter
Twitter is abuzz with the news that Donald Trump may have conceded. While amongst claims of voting fraud and fake news, Trump did it his own way, as always.
And he did it on his Twitter account, as always.
Twitter has been a primary means by which the president has sought to set the agenda. Since he first took office, many people have speculated that some of Trump’s tweets were deployed to distract from negative media coverage.
So has he not been complicit in the ‘fakeness’ he seems to be so up against? Despite the apparent lack of evidence of any of his online accusations, they have arguably influenced the belief systems of many voters than we would like to admit in a time where almost anything can be held up to scrutiny.
So how did Twitter become such an inexorable Trump strategic weapon?
