Trump's social media chief asks Twitter whether president should follow Hillary
President Trumpâs social media director is asking the Commander-in-Tweetâs millions of followers whether he should follow Hillary Clinton on Twitter.
âWho is the #1 âWHO TO FOLLOWâ Twitter recommendation for @realDonaldTrump, on his feed? Will share on Monday!,â Dan Scavino Jr. posted on Twitter late Saturday.
Along with Clinton, Scavino suggested House Speak Paul Ryan, Fox News and the GOP to the presidentâs 38.5 million followers.
Then, after being blasted on the messaging site about his selections, Scavino then tweeted about a hour later âI did not pick the choices.â
He was referring to Twitterâs âWho to Followâ function that is based on algorithms that make personalized suggestions to its users.
While Trump has millions of followers, he follows just 45 accounts, including Scavino, Fox Newsâ anchors Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters, as well as âFox and Friends,â a number of his resort properties, family members, his special counselor Kellyanne Conway and his former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
Scavino, who also served as Trumpâs social media director during the presidential campaign, was criticized for retweeting a post that showed waters from Hurricane Irma flooding Miami International Airport and urging people to âstay safe.â
He deleted it after airport officials said it wasnât from Miami.Source: Google News
