Trump, Twitter, and the Future of Democracy in the United States (PDF) uses a social scientific approach to answer two issues that are intertwined with one another: (1) what does Donald Trump say on Twitter? and (2) how come? Since Donald Trump entered the race for the presidency in 2016, his use of tweets has become an important component of his overall strategy for communicating with the general public. Even though specific tweets have received a significant amount of attention from the popular media, it is not entirely apparent what these tweets tell us about Donald Trump the businessman, the political candidate, and, eventually, the President of the United States. We argue that in order to get a complete understanding of Donald J. Trump, we need to study all of his activity on Twitter from a perspective that is more comprehensive. In general, our investigation paints a picture that is exceptionally complicated when it comes to Trump and the way he utilizes Twitter. Not only has his pattern of tweets changed over time, but we also found that President Trump’s usage of Twitter is more meticulous than he has been given credit for. This is something that we found out after analyzing his use of the platform. As is the case with most politicians, Trump approaches his participation on social media with a strategic mindset.
“Waterman and Ouyang have developed an interesting ebook that investigates Donald Trump’s use of Twitter and its community. More importantly, their work, which is brilliantly written, challenges many of our preconceptions regarding the study of contemporary presidential speech. They proposed the idea of “going directly public,” often known as GDP, which investigates the ways in which a president engages the public and makes use of the power of the media to change the political system.
