Endless love for Twitter has repeatedly raised the American President Donald trump in an awkward position. The other day in his microblog he accidentally shared the link to the secret information and thanked the user, which media called a “Russian bot”. Earlier, the head of the White house has puzzled the world the word “coffee”, published concise a record consisting only of the words “we”, and mistook his daughter Ivanka with some of its namesake. Even the President’s supporters urge him to tweet less often, not to mention the opponents, who believe that Twitter trump is a threat to national security.
Tuesday, August 8, the President posted on his microblog a link to the material his favorite Fox news channel. The article talked about the fact that the DPRK for the first time since 2014 installed it on one of their patrol boats, two cruise anti-ship missiles. The catch was that these details shared with reporters, an unnamed source in American intelligence. US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley declined to comment on this repost trump, referring to the fact that it contains sensitive information. Earlier, the President himself complained about leaks from various government institutions, the media and urged colleagues to keep his mouth shut.
Meanwhile, the press suspected that part of the 35 million audience tweet-account trump — bots, and even Russian. The White house likes to thank his supporters in social networks. Recently he noted the efforts of some Nicole Minci, the Creator of the account in support of trump @ProTrump45. But then a few users microblog suspected that this account may be fake, and the administration of the social network it was blocked. The Washington Post felt that the “fake” Nicole can be associated with Russian hackers, and in support of the trump acts as an army of “Russian bots” or account that supposedly often publish links to Russian news sources.
Advisers and assistants trump often hinted to him that it would be nice to get rid of the habit of writing in a blog every hour, but he was adamant. “Only the dishonest media and the enemies of the trump want me to stop using the social network. This is the only way for me to tell the truth,” — said the head of state.
Anyway, even ordinary Americans are already tired of “storm and stress” presidential tweets. The poll, conducted by SSRS on the order of si-EN-EN has shown that every seventh Respondent believes Twitter is a “dangerous method of communication for the President” and over 60% believe that the messages trump “too often can be misunderstood.” However, even staunch Republicans, who in General approve of the work of the President, not happy with his addiction, with 49% of them answered that his message is “sending the wrong signals to world leaders”.
Data of the same survey recorded another drop in the rating of the President. He’s done 56% of respondents (and this is a record indicator for all time since the inauguration), and approve it — 38%. Si-EN-EN believes that intemperance and errors in tweets trump played a role in the fall in his support.
