Trump: Bait’n Tweet!

While many view Trump’s use of Twitter as a loathsome tool of demagoguery in actuality he’s managed to accomplish something quite remarkable. In an era of 24/7 news cycle the media has mostly used Twitter as a mining source for feeding their compulsive demand for content; Trump, on the other hand, has used it as a trap.

Trump understood that despite his persona, wealth and notoriety he was a political outsider and that as President he would face near-continuous opposition from the monumental structure of the political elite. On the surface the play-nice-among-friends routine appears quite nauseating however, outside the specter of public view, the process is quite vicious.
