All the President’s Tweets (1/8)

Since the first Tweet in 2006, Twitter has increasingly become a platform for political and cultural change across the globe, with users live-tweeting all manner of events. This article from Social Media + Society specifically addresses the power of Twitter to alter users’ opinion of media sources, a power that has been greatly impacted by President Trump’s frequent tweets. The article argues that the rhetoric used by the President in his tweets, particularly his ridicule of the mainstream media, reduces public distrust in media sources and leads his supporters to buy in to his argument that that he is the only reputable news source.
