Donald Trump was a genius at Twitter

 

no politician was better  than him at posting

 

Trump used the social media platform in a way that no figure in American government has ever managed before

 

For the most part, politicians’ Twitter accounts are boring. They lack the off-the-cuff quality that is the principle pleasure of following a public figure on social media as opposed to in the news. Trump’s genius was to use Twitter the way ordinary people use social media: poorly.

His typos,

his regular indulgence in slander,

his unthinking repetition of inaccurate news

from obviously unreliable websites:

these are precisely the problems official communications from public figures have historically sought to avoid.
