Techcrunch took a stab at analyzing Trump’s tweets and found that the President Elect’s Twitter activity has grown exponentially since he took office.
A question that keeps rattling around in my head in our new Trump reality is whether social media posts like blogs, Tweets and status updates work like currency? Is there a “law of diminishing marginal returns” to the effectiveness of using Tweets to communicate?
On one hand, if he keeps up this pace, the novelty of a President of the United States taking to twitter to engage in a flame war will soon dissipate. If it does, we’ll discover what happens when the American public gets tired of a social media presidency.
On the other hand, brand marketers say that you need to be consistent on social media to engage your audience. If his goal is to keep his supporters (and detractors paying attention), constant tweeting is a good thing. Once in office, an attentive electorate can be a potentially mobilized electorate.

I'm already tired of Trump. I don't care if you are the president or some schmo from Podunk Texas I really don't want to know your every thought. There's something to be said for moderation. Trump has made himself into an irritation. By responding to every perceived slight he legitimizes his detractors. The man has the thinnest skin ever seen in political office. I think some presidents probably were too silent when attacked but Trump won't shut up.
