Back before I had this Substack, I made a post about Donald Trump’s Twitter-posting habits. I’ll quote it below after this new one:
Watch President Trump’s Influence Decline
Love him or hate him as a president, I don’t know anyone who thinks his Twitter accounnt improves the planet, so I have been following the decline in @realDonaldTrump’s follower count since the election, his all-time high:
Nov 1 — 88.9m
Nov 25 — 88.8m (-100K followers over 24 days)
Dec 1 — 88.7m (-100K followers in 6 days)
Dec 10 — 88.6m (-100K followers in 9 days)
Dec 21 — 88.5m (-100K followers in 11 days)
I will continue to track his decline for my own amusement and will update this page accordingly. Please follow along.
President Trump was Really Sick with Covid-19
I posted the following on Facebook on Oct 2, 2020 after President Trump was admitted to the hospital with Covid-19. It seems he was really sick, in retrospect.
President Trump hasn’t tweeted since last night. So I downloaded his 9,273 tweets for this year.
His average time between tweets (inclusive of sleeping hours) is 42m 42s.
His median time between tweets is 2h 15m.
His maximum time during this entire period (I couldn’t download more given my tech constraints in the last five minutes) is 22h 29m.
Only 16 times (0.17%!) this year has he gone more than 16 hours without tweeting.
I honestly hope he’s okay. It benefits no one if a sitting president dies.
