Child President

Our Child President is Obsessed With His Follower Count

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey meet with Trump at the White House yesterday where they supposedly discussed civil discourse.

That's something of a joke in itself given who Dorsey was talking to, but Trump regime sources say Trump actually spent most of the their time together complaining about losing followers.

Dorsey was reportedly forced to explain to our child president that the followers he has lost were fake.

The source, who was briefed on the meeting that included Twitter’s general counsel and public policy chief, said Dorsey explained in response to Trump’s concerns about losing followers that the company was working to remove fraudulent and spam accounts and that many famous people, including Dorsey himself, had lost followers as a result.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump suggested Twitter was biased against him, without providing evidence. He wrote on Twitter that the company does not “treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory.”

I would argue that Twitter actually treats Trump much better than he should be treated because of the office he occupies.

Others with high follower counts who direct hate and violence toward individuals, just as Trump has done, can find themselves banned from the service.

The Daily Beast separately reports that Trump's real beef is the fact that President Obama has more followers than he does.

Two people close to Trump previously told The Daily Beast that Trump has repeatedly griped to associates about how his predecessor, President Obama, has had more Twitter followers than he has, even though—by Trump’s own assessment—he is so much better at Twitter than Obama is.

    “without providing evidence”

    There should just be a macro in every reporter’s computer that automatically puts that after every “Trump said”.

    “I am so much better at Twitter” — the American president in 2019

    Someone, I forget who, tweeted yesterday that the thing Barack Obama told him that popped back to the surface was that the most valuable thing a president has is his time. This is how Donald Trump uses his.

    He must have had another bowl of crybaby soup.

    Twitter has made no secret of its efforts to rid the service of trolls, bots and scammers. Congress, under the Rs, held hearings on the subject a year or so ago. It’s been explained repeatedly to Donald Trump.

    Trump—and conservatives generally—don’t understand any of this because they don’t want to understand; they want to be victims and martyrs because that makes them feel better.

    Flippin’ snowflakes, the lot of ’em.

      And there has been a running campaign on Twitter to unfollow the blighted moron for at least week.

        Perhaps so, but that’s likely not the cause of the drop in Donald Trump’s Twitter followers. Twitter clearing out the weeds is.
