Tweeter in Chief

New Week, Same Trump

President Trump had a nearly 29% drop in Twitter activity over the last week. But although the frequency of his tweets declined, his focus on Twitter – himself – remains consistent.

Despite the heavy news coverage last week of the Senate hearings on Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, as well as the United Nations Security Council meeting, the president’s Twitter activity continued to center around himself.

The POTUS’s top two words used on Twitter were “president” and “trump,” tweeted 12 and eight times respectively. While Trump did mention “Kavanaugh” five times on the social media platform, none of his tweets mentioned Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified Thursday about an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh.

It’s also worth noting that Trump may have been a bit preoccupied last week, as his tweet activity declined significantly. The president tweeted 43 times over the past week, compared to an average of 60.3 tweets per week over the last year.
