    He has more time on his hands. He doesn't work for a living. She's busy running a campaign.

    That is not applicable, ❤️’s are from Twitter users not from Trump or Hillary themselves. Hillary’s account has tweeted just as many, if not more tweets, in the same time frame as Trump’s account. This tabulation was of only the 45 most recent tweets, and is just the past few days.

    Irrelevant.

    The box count? Did you actually mean to say RT in the first place?

    It’s a tabulation of Like counts for the 45 most recent tweets by Trump and Hillary, not RT.

    Stupid Americans have elections when we could just choose our leaders by Twitter likes.

    What does this prove? Trump has more internet trolls?

    If anything, this illustrates that Trump supporters aren't very smart to openly display their political leanings on personal social media accounts. Easiest way to burn bridges in their professional lives.

    No what it illustrates, unscientifically of course, is that Trump is way more popular than Hillary is. In some instances, tweets posted to their accounts at approximately the same time: Hillary has fewer than 1,000 votes while Trump has 15,000+. Hillary has series of tweets with fewer than 3,000 while Trump at same time frame has series of tweets all above 15,000. The highest Hillary has is 15,000 while Trump has several in 25,000 and over 30,000+.

    Trump has far more enthusiasm for his campaign than Hillary does.

    Trump: 595,000
    Hillary: 174,000

    Interesting that Trump has over 400,000 more than Hillary.

    No, what it illustrates is that Trump supporters are more likely to engage in political discussions on their personal social media accounts than Hillary supporters.

    So Hillary supporters are scared of showing support publicly for their candidate. Haha. Yes, Hillary is embarrassing. Your [non]argument is illogical: Trump’s way more popular than Hillary is.

    Well, considering how much support Trump has among uneducated voters, I can see how people knowing their political affiliations would be inconsequential for the types of jobs they get.

    So what you’re saying is that Hillary is a jobs killer and a threat to Americans’ freedom. Gotcha.

    I like tweets so I can easily find them later, like a bookmark system.

    If the results were reversed, you would probably be instead lauding this thread. Go to both their Twitter accounts and scroll through the past few days worth of tweets, noticing how Trump is way more popular than Hillary is, his supporters way more enthused than hers are. This could have ramifications for a general election matchup, with Trump receiving overwhelmingly more enthusiastic support and votes. It is possible it wouldn’t translate, but notice the trend.

    Pretty much. Facebook is the same way for a lot of people -- four right wing conspiracy/propaganda posts for every serious one.

    If you want to get really anal retentive about this, you could say that considering there are 300,000,000 people in the country, neither one of them are really all that popular.

    Don't know what all the hooplah is about.

    If you post something on social media that your boss may see and disagree with, say goodbye to your job. Either more Hillary followers have jobs they don't want to lose, or fewer Don supports care if they lose their jobs.

    In a word, it means nothing.

    I'm more and more convinced that the OP is Hieveryone's little brother.

    Twitter users, unlike with Facebook, primarily are using alias screen names. If you were a Twitter user, you would likely already have realized this. What you’re trying to argue is not applicable.

    It does not mean nothing, while it isn’t scientific, it does show quite clearly that Trump is way more popular than Hillary is. And I have no relation to ‘Hieveryone’ in any way whatsoever period.

    lol no. twitter is for the least common denominator type people in society. constant stream of useless information that doesn't affect anyone or anything. the fact that only having 140 characters is lauded as some sort quasi-new way of communicating is laughable at best. i couldn't give a **** about what random nobodies on twitter have to say about 2 presidential candidates.

    also i like the subtle (not very subtle) insinuation that i'd support hillary over trump. that, too, is laughable
