How to Get on Trump’s Tweet-dar

Six of the 10 Twitter accounts Trump retweeted most last week are not among the users he follows. The secret to getting the president’s Twitter attention? Get noticed by one of Trump’s family members or tweet in support of the president.

President Trump does not follow six of the 10 accounts he retweeted the most last week. So, how did they get on the president’s tweet-dar?

Of the accounts Trump does not follow, three – @paulsperry_, @TomFitton and @cvpayne – were also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr., indicating that the president’s son has influence on his tweeting habits.

The other three accounts that made it onto the Tweeter in Chief’s feed discussed topics directly related to Trump. For example,  @LouDobbs included the hashtag #MAGA in both of the tweets that Trump retweeted, while @marklevinshow tweeted about a book, titled, “The Case for Trump,” and @ChuckRossDC tweeted about a group that gave money to “bolster … the Trump-Russia narrative.”
