Donald Trump

Summary: Donald Trump stole the show last night by tweeting during the Democratic debates

He’s popular. He’s prolific. He has 4.4 million followers. And he does it all in 140 characters or less.


While all of the presidential candidates are trying to use social media to reach their fans on a more personal level, Trump is dominating on Twitter. As The New York Times says, he has turned a “140-character task that other candidates farm out to young staff members into a centerpiece of his campaign.”

Last night, Hillary Clinton and her closest competition, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, finally got to tee off against each other. And yet people were more excited about following Donald Trump’s Twitter account during the debate than they were with watching Hillary and Bernie. Fox News is reporting Trump picked up 70,000 followers during the debate–far more than any of the debaters:

So just how does The Donald do it? We followed the mogul’s tweets last night to find out. Here are our top Twitter tips based on @realDonaldTrump:


1. Hijack a popular hashtag and make yourself the center of attention.

Pick a high-profile event like the Democratic Debates. Steal the hashtag (in this case #DemDebate), plan a Twitter party, and tell the world they should come to your party instead of the main event.


Trump - at the request of many


2. Talk about how much everyone’s going to be talking about your tweets.


Trump - everyone's talking



Trump - more people watching Trump twitter


3. Retweet your famous friends. Extra credit if their tweets are about how everyone will be talking about your tweets.

4. But at all costs, don’t retweet Hillary Clinton even if she is secretly begging you to.

7. Make sure you say lots of snarky things.
