Tweeter in Chief

Peak Originality

President Trump’s retweet game has slowed to a near halt. Only three of the president’s 57 tweets over the last week were retweets. And, one of those retweets was of @realDonaldTrump.

President Trump has seemingly taken a step back from his normal retweeting habits. Despite major election news and the California wildfires, President Trump has mostly kept to his own words on Twitter.

Since July 1, about 16% of the POTUS’ tweets were retweets. But this week, the president’s retweet rate dropped to 5.26%, while 94.74% – or 54 tweets – were original

While Trump did retweet three times over the last week, one of those was of himself, @RealDonaldTrump. The other two retweets were Trump-friendly Twitter accounts: @FoxNewsSunday and @WhiteHouse.
