The Donald’s Social Storm: A Day in the Life of Trump’s Blistering Twitter Account

“@GovernorPataki couldn’t be elected dog catcher if he ran again–so he didn’t!” is just one of the presidential candidate’s tweets

Donald Trump has sparked a national firestorm the last two weeks with his grandiose presidential announcement speech and controversial comments about Mexican immigrants.

NBC, Univision and Macy’s have fired The Donald for calling Mexican immigrants racists, criminals and drug lords.

MSNBC and CNN have had a field day trouncing Trump, while Fox has been more predictably supportive of the real estate mogul. The same playbook has shown up digitally, with the usual liberal and conservative suspects excoriating or praising Trump.

But it’s Trump’s bold, occasionally brash Twitter and other social media accounts that might just propel his stardom in the GOP field, with every tweet sparking engagement and excitement among social users.

“This strategy helps exposure as it’s un-filtered and direct from him to the community,” social media expert Jenni Hogan told TheWrap. “When he does it through a speech he can be edited, or written about by a third party that selects what words or sentences they share on his opinions. With social media he can control the exact message.”

Here’s a day in the life of Trump’s Twitter Account: Tuesday, July 1st, 2015

Trump begins with calls for a Macy’s boycott.

He soon pivots to a more measured tone, thanking CNN’s Anderson Cooper for what he deemed as fair coverage.

Before you know it, Trump is firing the first shots in a desired Twitter spat with fellow presidential candidate George Pataki.

Soon, Trump moves back to Macy’s.

Frustration over fashion turns to poking at the Peacock.

Trump also took to Instagram to call out the media for what he perceives as a double standard between coverage of President Obama’s “gangbangers” comment and Trump’s comments on Mexican immigrants. Trump

“I don’t believe saying what you feel, and being genuine hurts,” Hogan added. “That’s what we want — even if we disagree. We can then choose to listen to that noise or filter it. A leader who leads with passion and opinion that aligns with their audience has a strong call to action rate.”

Thursday brought some other bold tweets from Trump.

Trump’s social storm can also be seen on Facebook, where he can be seen asking for news anchors’ numbers.

Jorge Ramos- Please send me your new number, your old one’s not working. Sincerely, Donald J. Trump
