Twitter Purges Site of Suspicious Accounts

“Twitter users across the globe may see a drop in their followers this week as the social media platform purges the site of suspicious accounts.”

U.S. News and World Report

America is a classless society, we don`t have a religious caste system like India or a social class system like England. When we apply for a job our prospective employer doesn`t care if our ancestors arrived on the Mayflower, or if our parents are members of an exclusive golf resort. Ideally any employer will be concerned only with our education, experience, wisdom and skills.

However in this digital age any employer would be derelict in his duties if he didn`t investigate our social media profile. Whenever I apply for a job I assume that I will be googled and that my Twitter and Facebook accounts will be scrutinized.

A social media presence is more important than a social pedigree or financial success or lack thereof, and it`s incumbent upon us to ensure that there`s nothing negative on our social media sites.

I`m not quite an anal-retentive as Millennials in regularly updating my social media accounts, but for a Baby Boomer I have an impressive presence on the Internet. I have published political essays online since 1998, and thousands of my articles, for good or ill, are available online for anyone to read. I also have a Twitter feed, a Facebook page and a Linkedin account.

I was dismayed this morning when I checked my Twitter feed and discovered that I had lost about two hundred followers. Even though I take Twitter`s word that they were purging the site of suspicious accounts, i.e. trolls and bots, I still feel like I just checked my checking account and discovered that I have $200 less than I expected.

But I`m probably not as shocked as celebrities who have millions of fake accounts, for example a survey has shown that more than a quarter of Trump`s followers are not real people. I just hope that Twitter purged the accounts of celebrities as thoroughly as they did those of regular folks.

My precipitous drop in Twitter followers was a slap on the face, if you enjoy reading my essays I hope you will empathize with me, and follow me on Twitter.

Trump’s Twitter Typos

Twitter is my favorite social media platform, and I fire off more than a dozen tweets on a daily basis. It`s easy to make a typo when I`m angrily responding to a tweet of someone blasting one of my articles, but unless it`s a flagrant typo I usually don`t bother to correct it. My pet peeve is anal-retentive wankers whose panties get in a twist over punctuation or typos in a tweet.

However I`m not the Leader of the Free World, and I have thousands not millions of followers. A typo on my Twitter feed will most likely go unnoticed, but a comma in the wrong place or a typo can cause an international incident if you`re the President of the United States.

I don`t think I`m being anal-retentive when I criticize Trump for his grammar-challenged and typo-ridden tweets. When Trump sends a tweet at an ungodly hour in the moment, he should wake up whoever he`s sleeping with and ask her to check his spelling, punctuation and grammar.

But then again even if Trump`s tweets were free of typos and punctuation errors, they are still the ramblings of a sick and twisted mind.

Twitter Has No Intentions of Banning Donald Trump

“Some Twitter users have called, repeatedly, for the social network to block President Trump’s account — but a new statement from Twitter essentially says that is not going to happen.

Twitter has previously responded to complaints about Trump’s account by saying that certain users’ tweets have a “newsworthiness” value that makes it important to stay online and inform the network’s global conversation. Its Friday statement expanded on that idea, though this latest explanation did not mention Trump by name.

“Elected world leaders play a critical role in that conversation because of their outsized impact on our society,” the post said. “Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions.”

Washington Post

There is no question that President Donald Trump’s tweets violate Twitter’s terms of service, and if he was a retired trucker firing off toxic tweets from his trailer home, instead of the Leader of the Free World he would have been permanently banned from the social media behemoth.

Every time Trump posts under vulgar and nasty tweet, especially one that might trigger a dictator to fire the first salvo of World War III, it’s tempting to demand that Twitter to block Trump’s account.

But Trump’s tweets are inherently newsworthy, not because they are pearls of wisdom, but by virtue of the fact that he’s the president of the United States.

It may not be a pleasant experience to read Trump’s stream of consciousness flatulence, but it gives us a window into his demented and devious mind.

Twitter has no intentions of blocking their most famous subscriber, they issued the flowing statement:

Blocking a world leader from Twitter or removing their controversial Tweets would hide important information people should be able to see and debate. It would also not silence that leader, but it would certainly hamper necessary discussion around their words and actions. 

We shouldn’t expend our energy attempting to convince social media giants to block Trump, we should be exercising every fire of our being attempting to impeach him.

Barack Obama, Not Donald Trump Dominates Twitter’s List of Most Re-Tweeted Posts of 2017

“As 2017 winds down, President Donald Trump continues to make headlines via his active Twitter account on a near-daily basis. But for all his furious posting, the tweeter-in-chief failed to make Twitter`s lists of most-liked and most-retweeted posts of 2017.

So who did take the No. 1 slots? Those prizes, announced Tuesday, went to former President Barack Obama and-interestingly enough-a teenager on a quest for chicken nuggets.

Former President Barack Obama had the most-liked tweet of the year. His post in response to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville this summer received 4.6 million likes. Another tweet, which he shared after Senator John McCain`s brain cancer diagnosis was made public, received more than 2 million likes, making it the third most-liked of 2017.

Obama was also responsible for three of the ten most-retweeted tweets of the year. The Charlottesville tweet came in at No. 2, with 1.7 million retweets.”

Fortune

When historians and biographers weigh in on the Donald Trump administration, they will pay scant notice to his ghostwritten books, but they will parse every word in his tweets.

Trump is primarily known for two things: Pussy grabbing and firing off tweets. He starts of each morning, not with prayer or meditation, but with a vitriolic tweet.

You`d think the septuagenarian Tweeter-in-Chief would dominate Twitter`s list of most-liked and most-retweeted posts of 2017.

But it`s another president, the erudite and diplomatic Barack Obama who`s well-represented in Twitter`s list of most-retweeted posts of 2017. This is in spite of the fact that Twitter is tailor-made for grammatically-challenged wicked dimwits.

It should be noted that Obama has 97 million Twitter followers to Trump`s 44 million. Obama rarely tweets while Trump tweets almost as often as he farts, proving that quality is better than quantity.

Trump`s incoherent and nasty tweets may get him impeached or trigger World War III, but Obama`s sincere and uplifting tweets are a promise that America will survive the execrable Trump administration.

Twitter Employee Deletes Donald Trump’s Twitter Feed on His Last Day of Work

On Thursday President Donald Trump`s Twitter feed went down, unfortunately it was restored 11 minutes later.

A Twitter customer support employee performed the community service on his last day. We all have fantasies about wreaking havoc on our last day of work: Downloading porn on the boss`s laptop, spiking the water cooler, keying the car of the office gossip … But deleting the Twitter feed of the most powerful man in the world, if only for a few minutes, is truly epic.

There is so much tomfoolery, fake news, and just plain meanness that emanates from Trump`s Twitter feed, many of Trump`s supporters and enemies have attempted to curb his addiction to his favorite social media platform.

The as yet unidentified Twitter employee probably committed a crime shutting down Trump`s Twitter account, but I hope he`s not in any serious trouble. Let the man who hasn`t fantasized about shutting up Trump permanently by breaking his baby hands cast the first stone at the Twitter employee.

if I was the CEO of Twitter I would give the patriotic Twitter employee a generous severance package, and the “Employee of the Year” award.

Donald Trump, Twitter and the End of the World

Outrage is the coin of the realm on social media, especially Twitter. Trump has a volcanic nature and his default mode is outrage, therefore Twitter is the perfect platform for him to publish his insane proclamations.

Many presidents have occasionally used the editorial pages of the New York Times or the Washington Post to communicate with the American public. But Trump`s grammar is unfit for a middle school newspaper, let alone a prestigious publication like The New York Times, fortunately there are no grammar rules per se on Twitter, and he can vent to his illiterate heart`s content on the social media site.

I sometimes wax apoplectic on Twitter and nobody bats an eye, because that`s just how people roll on Twitter.

Even though Trump is the President of the United States and Leader of the Free World we shrug when he spouts nonsense on Twitter. Nothing to see her folks, it`s just our Buffoon-in-Chief talking smack on his favorite social media platform.

Trump could tweet that Kim Jong-un the Rocket Man and Crooked Hillary should ride a nuclear-tipped missile shaped like a dildo and crash into a deserted island and we would take it in stride, after all Trump has been twitting crazy shi* for years.

If Trump tweeted “crazy fundies are right and September 23, 2017 is really the end of the world and imma gonna grab me as much pussy as I can before then!,” I would think to myself what kind of a fuc*ed up world do we live in, I always thought the end of the world would be announced by heavenly trumpets, not by a stupid Trump tweet.

Liberty University Grads Protest Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Sickening Support of Donald Trump

In the wake of President Donald Trump`s stunning Charlottesville remarks in which he embraced White Nationalists every section of our society has repudiated his blatant racism.

President Trump`s Entire Arts and Humanities Council quit.

Trump disbanded his Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum after a rash of defections by business leaders.

The following prominent Republican leaders have denounced Trump by name: Sen. John McCain, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Jeff Flake, Rep. Ed Royce, Rep. Leonard Lance, Former President Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney …

Military Joint Chiefs denounced Charlottesville racism.

Artists, business leaders, the military brass, and Republican leaders have criticized Trump`s bigotry in no uncertain terms.

Only evangelical leaders, who you`d think would be the first ones to condemn hatred, have remained silent.

Only one religious leader has stepped down from Donald Trump`s evangelical advisory board. Megachurch pastor A.R Bernard announced on Twitter Friday that “it became obvious that there was a deepening conflict in values between myself and the administration.”

In January 2016, Jerry Falwell Jr. became one of the earliest evangelical leaders to endorse the degenerate billionaire candidate, and he has remained steadfast in support of Trump through every scandal, every intemperate tweet and every contentious press conference.

After Trump`s outrageous, controversial and racist remarks about the Charlottesville White Nationalists` protest this is what Falwell tweeted:

Finally a leader in WH. Jobs returning, N Korea backing down, bold truthful stmt about #charlottesville tragedy. So proud of @realdonaldtrump

We expect our religious leaders to condemn racism and other moral diseases, and to urge their followers and indeed the entire nation to form a more perfect union.

Jerry Falwell Jr. may be a moral coward, but I take heart in the fact that a group of Liberty University (LU) alumni has condemned him for his continued alignment with Trump. Some LU graduates have vowed to return their diplomas to register their disapproval.

I urge my evangelical friends to join the rest of society in condemning hate speech, racism and bigotry.

Donald Trump Won’t Stop Tweeting Until a Hero Chops Off His Tiny Hands

“One day after swearing in a new chief of staff, President Trump has a message for the world: He won`t stop tweeting.

`Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people),` Trump said in a post Tuesday. `Only way for me to get the truth out!`”

USA TODAY

Donald Trump wouldn`t recognize the truth if it bit off his tiny pecker and flushed it down the toilet.

This tweet is another one in the endless series of lies that emanate from the White House. It`s not only Trump`s enemies (which are legion) that want him to stop tweeting, most Americans want him to stop utilizing social media.

According to a recent YouGov poll a total of 58% of respondents said they thought Trump`s use of Twitter was inappropriate compared to just 25% saying it was appropriate. A further 17% said they were not sure.

Trump`s tweet seems to be a warning that the new sheriff in town, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, won`t be able to curb his obsession with Twitter.

I`m sure he won`t, Trump will be tweeting until the glorious day when he`s impeached and removed from office.

Female GOP Lawmakers Need to Have ‘Come to Jesus Meeting’ With Donald Trump

I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don`t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came…..to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year`s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

Presidential Tweet

This is the tweet heard around the world, it`s been denounced by commentators, pundits, politicians, intellectuals and everyday people of every political persuasion.

Even some GOP lawmakers were finally compelled to condemn Trump`s misogyny. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine spoke out in no uncertain terms against Trump`s sickening tweet. You`d think that these female politicians would be joined by a chorus of sister GOP lawmakers appalled by our president`s ad hominem attack. But too many Republican congresswomen and senators were silent in the face of misogyny and some even defended the indefensible.

Melania Trump`s communications director Stephanie Grisham released this statement: As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel defended Trump`s reprehensible tweet saying “Today, the president acted like a human, and he pushed back.”

Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders vigorously defended the bully-in-chief, not backing down an inch.

The First Lady has made it her crusade to put an end to online bullying, she can start by speaking out against the biggest bully in the world. Ronna McDaniel is correct, the president acted like a human — a despicable and petty human being. Sarah Huckabee Sanders should be reminded that her job description doesn`t include making excuses for and enabling the worst personality traits of her boss.

Enough is enough, the female Republicans in Congress should demand a meeting with the president. They should make it abundantly clear to him that his sick tweets are endangering his agenda and that he is putting at risk their support.

I don`t know about the Republicans in Congress, but I want to be on the record speaking out against Trump`s insanity. Indeed, it`s incumbent upon all of us, of every political party, to speak truth to power, and condemn Trump`s toxic tweets.

America Wants Donald Trump to Stop Tweeting

“President Donald Trump may insist his tweets are a way to get his honest and unfiltered message out,” but a majority of voting Americans – including Trump`s supporters – say he should spend less time on Twitter.

 

According to a new Morning Consult poll released Wednesday, more than two thirds of voters – 69 percent – say Trump uses Twitter too much, compared to just 15 percent who say he uses it about the right amount and only 4 percent who say he should tweet more.”

US News and World Report

You don`t have to be a rocket scientist or a political science major to deduce that Donald Trump spends far too much time on Twitter. In fact, according to a new poll 69 percent of voters say Trump uses Twitter too much. Four percent say Trump should tweet more, these morons also probably think he should apply more orange fake tan.

The results of this poll beg the question: What activity should Trump engage in instead of Twitter?

Enroll in an adult education remedial English Class

Call Jenny Craig

It should be explained to the bastard that he shouldn`t call to flirt with her, but to enroll in a weight-loss program. After Trump gets over the hump and loses 40 pounds from his belly and he can see his tiny pecker for the first time in decades, it will motivate him to lose a hundred more.

Yoga

Trump isn`t limber enough to do any of the classic Yoga positions, but it might mellow him out just a tad.

Sudoku

This game might be too complicated for Trump, but if Betsy DeVos agrees to give him a full body massage wearing only a “Make America Great Again” hat if he does well he might be inspired to become a Sudoku master.

Practice for the US Citizenship Test

I`m persuaded that this a-hole who wants to deport everyone who isn`t white would flunk the test.

Take up cutting

He could take up cutting himself as a mechanism to relieve stress, maybe we would all get lucky and he`ll cut his jugular.

Fishing

Give the wanker a shiny new fishing pole and let him fish in the toilet bowl

Train for running marathons

Tell the buffoon that all once he has suffered a stroke or a heart attack he will be ready to participate in a marathon.

As you can see there must be a million and one more productive ways to spend your time, other than on Twitter. Send me your suggestions.
