He has been widely criticised for his maverick tweets but the US President shows no sign of falling out of love with Twitter.
Donald Trump is more attached to his Twitter account that any US president since the social media website’s invention.
Whether it is advertising his latest appearance on Fox and Friends, railing against the “Fake News Media”, or his regular refrain of “Make America Great Again” (tweeted in caps, of course), barely a day goes by when this President doesn’t tweet.
Among his most controversial recently is the tweet of a clip showing him punching a person with a CNN logo on his face before walking away unscathed, a tweet that some have said promotes violence against those in the media.
The “Fake News Media” is a regular subject of Mr Trump’s tweets – whether it’s CNN, print giants the New York Times and Washington Post or, indeed, any media outlet that does not say what he thinks it should.
Other times the Trump Tweets spark confusion, such as the bizarre term “covfefe”.
He wrote, “Despite the constant negative press covfefe”. That tweet was later deleted but not before it naturally set friends and foes alike on an excited (but ultimately pointless) search for the word’s meaning.
Memes were born and the mystery word even trended but what he meant by tweeting such nonsense was never clarified.
And, speaking of Mr. Trump predecessor, Barack Obama gets accused of making bad deals, spending too much money and, most often, spying on the Trump campaign during the election. Mr. Trump thunders: “This is McCarthyism!”.
It’s no secret that the US President is very proud of his daughter Ivanka. He has used Twitter to praise and protect her, saying that she was “treated so unfairly” by a business that decided to stop selling her fashion brand.
But one of the most common themes of Mr. Trump’s tweets is America’s security.
He praises veterans and the military while occasionally relaying the number of crimes in Chicago for his 33 million followers. He saves most of his frustration (and capital letters) for his comments on the long-running saga of his beloved travel ban. “See you in court!”
