Has anyone noticed that when 45 tweets it is instantly retweeted hundreds of times?



 
Here's what I observed about half an hour ago; Tweetler posted this about Comey:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
 “They could have charged Comey with theft of government documents, 641 of the Criminal Code, because the IG found these were not his personal documents, these were government documents.” @GreggJarrett  “Comey’s claim that these were just his own personal recollections would not..

Two minutes after it hits Twitter it was at 800 retweets and 2.5K+ likes. The counters were literally revolving. Like every second. This is not normal. On other people's tweets the counter would turn over every now and then. And certainly not within two minutes!

The only explanation that the primitives can come up with for the popularity of Trump tweets is Russian shenanigans.

4. It would be interesting to see where all those retweets and likes are coming from.
From his supporters, dumb ass.

Or maybe it's that Trump's Twitter activity is fairly predictable and that many normal American people follow what he does. Even the MSM folk who hate Trump keep an eye on his Twitter, because Trump has made it news, and they can't afford to be scooped by their competitors. And BTW, ANY President - R or D - using Twitter is outside of "normal". Because they are/were President of the US.

On Twitter's side, do even DU-Morons believe Trump's "Followers", likes, and reTweets are not constantly scrutinized by Twitter for bots, fakes, and organized foreign activity? If only due to constant howling - like this DU-thread - by DU-Moron-Grade Progs? If there were any more of that among Trump-related activity than among that of Name of Dem Candidate it would be squashed and made public.

From what I understand considering I don't do Twitter, mega pop stars have more followers than President Trump.  Are we to believe that insipid followers of say a Taylor Swift are all Russian bots retweeting as well?

I don't do Twitter either, but like you, I think the only context from which DU-folk derive their idea of what is "normal" is from their accounts, if they have one, and their hatred for Donald Trump. Based on the latter they cannot handle the idea that Trump really has millions of Followers and 10s of thousands who wait for his daily Tweet-storm.

I do do Twitter, and am one of President Trump’s followers there.  He’s prolific, yes, because the media would filter his message to say what they want it to say.  This way, the public sees what he wants to show.  It’s a bypass of the media, and the media hates that.

^^ That's been the rub all along, BSS.  It pisses the media off, it pisses the DUmmies off.  They've made outraged posts saying "HE WILL NOT STOP TWEETING."  Neither does Cher, but who cares?   :lmao:

I joined Twitter for one reason only: PDJT is on it, and I can get his own thoughts (even if, as I expect, typed by an intermediary-- they read like speech transcribed) without the lyinenemedia filter.

And we have a winner. They're losing their control of the message, they're losing the ability to manipulate and to frame the discussions...so they hate it (and they hate him).

Similar things going over here with Boris using social media to interact with the people rather than be interviewed by leftist media.

Yep.  Trump gets to control his own narrative and go directly to the people.
