    The President of the United States is addicted to Twitter. And like a true addict, he's celebrating his inauguration anniversary with a marathon session. Forty tweets in one day has to be come kind of record. When we do the math, a disturbing reality emerges.

    Have you ever watched a septuagenarian finger peck out a message on their phone? It's not quite the same thing as some teenager typing out a book with a single gesture of their hand. It takes time. A lot of time.

    Donald's tweeting frequently shows intervals of 10-20 minutes between his high volume sessions. Not all of those tweets are necessarily immediate follow-ups, as sometimes the subsequent tweets delve into entirely new topics. But at other times the latter tweets are continuations of the previous statements. Let's therefore go with the lower end of the range and estimate that Donald's average tweet takes 10 minutes for him to finger peck out.

    Simple arithmetic tells us the rest. At an average 10 minutes a tweet, 40 tweets on the day takes 6 hours and 40 minutes in finger pecking on his phone.

    That's your President, America.

    It really disturbs the left that a President can speak directly to the people without being filtered and edited by the MSM.

    If you had posted an article I might have read it. But I don't watch videos that don't involve lots of nudity.

    In any event, there certainly a difference between the general PR fluff that a white house staffer might post on his behalf, and the personal comments that make up the vast majority of his tweets. While the excuse has been put forward that he doesn't necessarily post all his own tweets, there has never been any evidence that this claim has been anything more than a mere smokescreen with no purpose than to create plausible deniability if/when he wants to sidestep responsibility for his twitter behavior.

    I worry about my own behavior, not another's. It would suit me fine if Twitter went down the drain since I hate it.

    Meanwhile the anti-American TDS victims celebrate Sandy "Donkey Face" Cortez and her probably mostly fake Twitter subscribers and that she, a complete and utter idiot, has such impressive social media skills. :p
