There were 2.8 billion tweets in the United States last year. An astounding 32 percent of them — 901.8 million — mentioned Donald Trump, according to an analysis published by Chris Krueger of the Cowen Washington Research Group.
Krueger analyzed Trump’s 2,143 tweets over one full year after his election, an average of almost six a day.
“We were looking for signals in the Twitter noise. We found none,” he wrote in a note Tuesday. “BUT, the noise has become the signal: According to Echelon Insights, a firm based in opinion research and digital technology, President Trump was not the daily top Twitter topic of conversation for only 17 days in 2017.”
Kreuger also notes that all of the top tweets coming out of Congress last year were sent in response to things Trump had tweeted or done.
Overall, Kreuger writes, it's hard to deny the president's status as top tweeter: "All deference to Howard Stern, but Donald Trump is the King of all Social Media."
