Last week, I saw an article about how the potential next American presidents are using social media.
This week Donald Trump has now become the presumptive Republican nominee, so it seems like a race against Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump.
We wanted to analyse how Donald Trump uses Social Media, below we give you the insights.
- Twitter followers: 7.91m

Donald Trump is no conventional candidate for the US presidency and his use of Social Media has been anything but conventional as well.
Social Media has been dubbed the “real Trump card in the US election” according to data research by Social Media management firm SocialFlow, Trump has dominated the political conversation on Twitter, where he has posted more than 30,000 tweets of various insults and comments alike.
Between March 2015 and February 2016, US Social Media users spent more than 1,200 years reading Donald Trumps’s content on Social Media, impressive!
The billionaire businessman would have had to spend $380m if he sought to generate the same amount of attention through paid ads.
Annoyingly, though, much of the attention Donald Trump has garnered on Social Media has been thanks to controversial tweets and retweets. where he public responds to comments or slates competitors.
Trump’s wife revealed that her husband eases up on his tweeting, a statement likely to be echoed by many.
Ignoring that he has taken “legitimacy” to a whole new planet, embracing any and everything he can to better himself, Trump’s success in the Republican competition suggests that perhaps there really is no such thing as bad publicity on social media, at least for the time being.
Let us know your comments in the section below, what do you think of Donald Trump on Social Media?
