    Most of "followers" out there in the twitter/instagram/youtube/twitch world are fake.

    Kim Kardashian has 100 million followers yet gets only 1-3 million likes on a picture.

    The world of instagram and twitter are all about image and most of it is fake sorry to break it to you.

    For the most part the majority of twitter accounts are bots. This is why twitter can't make money.

    ... The other half of Trump's twitter followers are comedy writers.

    In the bigger picture it doesn’t really matter because everything he Tweets gets vomited all over the internet anyway. In that regard he no doubt has the biggest Twitter following in the world.

    Twitter should be a patriot and shut down the entire service siting financial difficulties which is a fact anyway. I’m sure every Twitter employee would get a job at another Silicon Valley company with a bonus for being a hero for shutting Trump up.

    I actually appreciate the fake that the president can speak to us directly instead of through the lens of the MSM. Covfefe and all.

    Of course he does.

    Just like he thinks he won the popular vote last November.

    Hmmm. I wonder if my account has ever been counted as a fake. I have no profile pick and I never tweet. I follow 8 people.

    We won the Presidency. That's really all the matters. We kept Hillary out of the Oval Office, so the world at least has a chance of surviving.

    I don’t. It’s the only thing that is giving him the illusion he has the overwhelming support of the country while he throws himself a pity party.

    I never supported Trump, I opposed Hillary. I'd have supported anything over Hillary.

    Your lack of punctuation really makes me work for it, Steve. Thanks. Your posts can have several different means depending on where I place the punctuation needed. I't like doing a Sudoku puzzle.:D

    And there's the problem with America summed up in a nutshell. No, that is not all that really matters. This constant team sports mentality is killing us.

    Another example of spineless, spiteful, short-sighted idiocy from Donald Trump.

    How many coal-miners have got their jobs back during your Presidency, **** gibbon?

    I love how whenever there's criticism of Agent Orange, people bring up Hilary.
