Trump Brushes off Obama, Says He’ll Keep Tweeting Thanks to Secret Service

Donald Trump’s penchant for using Twitter even after the election has caused a lot of questions. Once he is sworn in, will he stop tweeting? Or will this continue for the next four years? It seemed that the tweeting might slow down when Trump turned his phone into the Secret Service — but he got a new phone, Secret Service-approved — so he can continue reaching out to his followers on Twitter.

Trump’s new phone will be encrypted, so it can be secure. He will still be able to make and receive calls, but few people will be given the number.

He has also confirmed that he does plan to continue using Twitter. While Barack Obama set up an official @POTUS account, Trump does not plan on using it. Instead, he will keep using his @RealDonaldTrump account. Surprisingly, Trump is not the one who posts his tweets — his staffers do it for him, after he dictates his thoughts for them. “I thought I’d do less of it [tweeting], but I’m covered so dishonestly by the press — so dishonestly,” Trump recently said as an explanation.

He's right. I don't blame him for hanging on to the only real option he has to speak directly to the people without being filtered or misquoted.
