Donald Trump and the 'Modern' Twitter Presidency - PCMag

PC Mag via

Earlier this summer, in response to mounting criticism that his use of social media was unpresidential, Donald Trump took to his favorite social media platform to confirm that his tweeting habit was indeed not presidential but "modern presidential." Though his use of Twitter to fire off personal attacks, less-than-true statements, and typo-ravaged missives is unstatesmanlike, Trump's use of social media to foster a direct, transparent connection with his base is something US voters should probably expect from future presidents. A self-described "super nerd," Thurston knows a thing or two about modern communication, particularly the kind that occurs on the internet. While Thurston doesn't necessarily think we'll see a personality this "extreme" again in the White House, he says future presidents will use social media to reveal a picture of the operator behind the curtain. According to Thurston, the more interesting part of Trump's digital story isn't his in-your-face style on social media, it's the story of how he rose to power in the first place with the help of the internet. Donald Trump's presidency is only possible because the internet broke things apart before he got there. Just as the internet disintegrated the once-might music industry, thus clearing the way for an unsigned artist to win multiple Grammys, a political outsider came in through the side door and hacked the ruins of another once-impenetrable institution. Without the internet, Trump would not be president," Thurston says. Coin spectator is an automated news aggregation service. All copyrights belong to their respective owners.
