That might be in the running for craziest, but least consequential category.

Seriously, this guy is so f*cking insecure he can't just ignore what people say on the Internet.  The President of the United f*cking States lacks the self-discipline to simply not respond to twitter-shiatters.

Why doesn't he just switch to Parler... or whatever it's called?  Nobody will bother him there.

He knows that OTHER people see those posts.

Any time he tweets now the majority of the response is in the vein of "trump suck!!!11!"

I approve, but I can see why he wants to stop it.

As opposed to... you know, being a competent President so that not EVERY response is "Trump Sucks"?

But seriously - why the hell should the President care that people don't like him?  Presidents are ALWAYS disliked by a significant portion of the population.

For that matter, why is the President using twitter the way he does anyway?  It's f*cking stupid.

This is the crux of his problems. He could use a platform that allows control of feedback including having his own web site. But his combination of dumbness and ego means he NEEDS twitter to see the likes and reposts. He's an infant trying to control the adult world.

Come on NY state!

Lock him up!

He doesn't read the bot and wannabe influencer responses (and definitely doesn't read the even more pathetic responses to his tweets on 3rd party platforms...but I digress.) I doubt he personally cares at all about this rule. This is far more about preventing his tweets from being considered "official statements" which his handlers are far more concerned about. They don't want his bullshiat getting into the national archives.

He uses twitter for government work. He communicates his policies and makes policy arguments on his account. It's not like he just uploads pictures of his kids and only writes messages for family. So his account is public record.
 
2020-08-20 2:32:02 PM  
He wants Twitter to be his own, private treefort and he alone dictates who gets in at any given moment.  The super-secret password is likely something along the lines of:
YES SIR!  YES SIR!  THREE BAGS FULL SIR! (most effective if bleated with tears in the eyes)

Exactly!  That's why he always talks about his ratings.  He needs to be "better" than everyone else.

I respect anyone who admits they made a mistake or was wrong, but not the one who doubles, or triples down on their actions.

I have never seen him respond but it does tell us he reads them. I figured most politicians post then go do real work somewhere else. If the poster wants them to read it they tag it. The people he responds to are usually retwitted. I think I have seen AOC do some responses but it is mostly in the how to make a good drink type of posts.

Speculation on my part. That is what I would do.

Someone got his fee fees hurt again.

He was going off today on Twitter about how trending hashtags aren't real, because the #2 trending hashtag (appropriate) was #TrumpMeltdown. Then he had one and proved them right.

So much this. Not like there's anything else going on his attention might be better spent on... oh wait, Golf. He should really get out for some Golf this weekend, it's been at least 4 days since he squeezed in 18 holes.

"The decision of the court of appeals warrants this Court's review," the petition reads. "By ignoring the critical distinction between the President's (sometimes) official statements on Twitter and his always personal decision to block respondents from his own account, the opinion blurs the line between state action and private conduct."

No, that's not at all how this works. Once they declared that statements made by Donnie on his PERSONAL account were OFFICIAL statements, then the Twitter became an OFFICIAL one, and no longer a PERSONAL one. Other politicians have solved this by creating separate accounts, but you don't get to claim an official account is only official "sometimes", and you don't get to declare an account "official" and then take it back.

So fark off, Donnie and Friends.

Guaranteed if (God please let it be when, not if) he loses this Nov the first thing he will do is start a NeoConTard Cable News channel. He's been sowing the seeds for that move since before he moved into the WH.

Not only that, but they have been asked and have officially confirmed that it is... It's not like there's anything open t interpretation here. Early on, they either Spicer or Huckabeast, and they went on record saying that his Tweets(From his own account) are "official statements".
 
2020-08-20 2:48:48 PM  
He wants to block reporters from seeing his tweets. He outwardly believes this will hurt their "ratings" as he believes people only listen to those reporters when they talk about trump.  Inwardly, he's once again displaying that his pathetically fragile ego gets shattered every time he receives even mild criticism, so he's trying to protect himself from ever reading anything "nasty."

If he wants to resign, he can do this. He'll never have to let any of the mean people see anything he does ever again.  But the best approach is to lock him up in prison (following a fair trial, of course), where he can't use twitter at all.

Twitter is the mainline IV of his herion - adulation and attention.

He's just like any other addict - only dumber than most and crippled with NPD and rapidly declining mental health

I think once he was elected President, that ship pretty much sailed. Anything types or is recorded while in office is covered by the Presidential records act, isn't it?

You seriously think an egotist like Trump doesn't go through replies?

His attention and reading ability will limit how many and how often, but the odds of him not going through replies are roughly the same as him behind truthful when he says he doesn't watch CNN.

And yes, he would demand to block anyone who says mean things.

I didn't read the article but I assume the law is fairly clear and it's not like it has to physically spell out every possible forum it applies to as the intent is defined. I'm also guessing lower courts have already ruled. I'm also guessing that when the SC rules against him, he'll resubmit with 'but it doesn't specify if I can delete stuff on a  Wednesday". Trump is the ultimate lawsuit troll.
