Abstract

How should the leader of the free world tweet? President-elect Trump likes to use Twitter, and his love of 140-character-based messages won’t likely change once he enters the White House. This election, more than any other, highlighted the power of social media to influence public opinion. Trump took to Twitter to, among other things, denounce the media, criticize individuals and spread his campaign messages to his more than 15 million followers as @realDonaldTrump. President Obama indicated before the election that the official @POTUS Twitter account he now uses, with more than 11 million followers, would be available to the next president.
