To Donald Trump, how important Twitter is if anyone knows, it’s the President
Last month, the President told to the Financial Times that, “Without the tweets, I would not be here.”
“Sorry about that, world,” said by the Co-founder of Twitter as a reply of what President said.
Evan Williams, who still sits on the company's board of directors, recently told to The New York Times that Trump wants to repair the damage he thinks Twitter and the broader Internet have wrought on society in the form of trolls, cyberbullies, live-streamed violence, fake news and - yes – Trump also.
Williams told to the Times, "I thought once everybody could freely speak and exchange information and thoughts, the world will automatically be going to a better place," "but I was wrong about that."
"If it's true that Trump wouldn't be the president if it weren't for Twitter, then yeah, I'm sorry," he said.
Hard to say, is it true?
Since the President Trump has become, his aggressive, incessant and something inaccurate tweets on Twitter have seemed much a liability as a political boon. Trumps aides held a social media “intervention” a few weeks ago, as per The Wall Street Journal, convincing Trump that unfounded accusations like "Obama had my 'wires tapped' " could endanger him politically and legally.
Trump once described on the campaign trail, that his growing rapidly on Twitter following not only as a means to get the truth out, but as a way also to get even with his enemies.
"Someone said I'm the Ernest Hemingway of 140 characters," he told a crowd in South Carolina, air-typing into a pretend phone. "If someone said something bad about you: Bing, bing! I might say something really bad."
