About the Trump Twitter Feed

I posted the the Trump feed because I felt is was relevant news. This is the first president to be, that has decided to communicate with the citizens of this country through twitter. I know that this is not the traditional way to communicate, but it is the modern way. He is obviously doing two things; by passing the media and reaching out to a younger demographics. 

But since I have posted it, I have had some objections. 

I am not going to put words into anyone's mouth, but I would like some feedback on this. 

Please note, any nasty or off topic comments will be removed immediately.

What? Now no one has an opinion?

I like it.

I like it too. Makes it easier to keep up with the rambling stupidities that flow out of his mind like so much bullshit.

I'm not fond of Trump, more resigned to him than anything else.  That being said, you made a good point that this is how he is going to communicate with us, so we had better have a news feed that tells us what he is saying.  I mean, at the worst, we'll likely see some cringe-worthy moments, at the best, we can have a good laugh-- or go into complete panic mode.  Most of the time, i read his twitter feed and think, "You really don't mean that, do you?"  But, of course, he does.  I think his own mouth is going to get him in a lot of trouble.

I don't look at it that much.  So, it doesn't really bother me all that much, either.

A moderate and balanced response. Thanks!

I don't like it, nor should anyone's twitter be up there. the space could be used for on line news referencing all sources.

That is not a bad idea, Gene. I would have to subscribe to such a service though, and it might slow down loading time. I would have to investigate.

My opinion is that Donald Trump should stop using twitter because he is embarrassing this country every time he opens his mouth or types something. 

As for NT, the area used for the Trump feed on the front page is almost the size of the area used to promote original articles. Make of it what you will. 

I have Trump twitter as a browser bookmark, so this doesnt bother me one way or the other.

It is the same size as the AP feed that no one paid attention to and in the same place.

Do we mean we traded the most accurate and respected news outlet on the planet for the biggest liar and blowhard in America?  Sounds like we got gypped.

No one ever used it, including you. I was hoping that this would at least stir discussion either pro or con.

My vote about trumps twitter feed is that it is your decision.

I have no personal opinion about it.

I don't have a problem with it but think the space would be better served expanding the small box in the middle of the page with general forums where all the activity is.

link 01/13/17 02:29:22PM @perrie-halpern:


I don't understand what you mean in a small box. It would have to go under all of the forum stuff like the activity feed. And what would go in it's place? The AP feed again.?

Dean Moriarty

It think this area of the front page should be larger.

Larger in what way? Wider? How would that help? Or do you mean that the box should be longer so you could see more without scrolling so much?

Dean Moriarty
link 01/13/17 03:28:00PM @dean-moriarty:

Yes to display more of the current activity. Longer and wider. It's just my opinion and I think you do a great job.

Hi Dean,

I am unclear to the benefit of making it wider, but longer I can see. I will investigate. 

And thank you for your kind words! :)

You can see a lot of comments at once on the Newest Comment tab...  It sort of seems to me as if we already have this feature...

Maybe what I need to do is update the how to use videos for the members?

link 01/13/17 04:15:17PM @dowser:

That may help, if people will watch them!  

link 01/13/17 02:11:34PM @gunny:

I've just changed my mind.  I think it is great to let the people see the REAL president and how OPEN and TRANSPARENT his administration will be.

Perrie Halpern R.A.
link 01/13/17 03:41:31PM @perrie-halpern:

So, no on the news feed then?

link 01/13/17 04:21:29PM @gunny:

It's your site, I would prefer the news sites all of them.  but if the majority still want the twitter site then so be it , but put up an entire twitter site. to include those that twitter back to Trump.  Just his twitters is kinda one sided, but to put up the twitter answers to his would balance out the program, don't ya think.  Might as well have the good and bad together.



link 01/13/17 03:10:02PM @pj:

In my opinion anything that promotes one party coupled with the majority of articles that are anti Barrack Obama and anti Democrat gives the forum an appearance of being a right wing community.  If that's the overall objective then I think it will most likely attract the intended audience.  

Another thing to consider is the timing.  There is still much angst here from members over President Elect Trump so it may not help heal some of the bad feelings that have surfaced.  What could offset what some may consider an unevenness of representation would be to add a prominent Democratic leader's twitter.

link 01/13/17 03:15:54PM @perrie-halpern:

I can see your POV PJ. The site was meant as a non partisan site, representing the full spectrum of political views.

I agree about the timing, yet the reality of the situation is that Trump will be our President in less than 10 days. I like your idea of featuring another twitter feed to balance out Trumps. I am open to ideas as to who's that should be? The minority whip maybe? 

link 01/13/17 04:03:53PM @dowser:

That would be great, if he tweets!

How about a badfish twitter feed with opposing views?

I think the Trump Twitter feed is fabulous.  His own words show what a creep and a coward he is.  What better way to convince the masses of his long list of character flaws and short-comings. 

link 01/13/17 04:24:22PM @gunny:

And the nasty twitter tweets back to him will show how what creeps and cowards are behind their tweets. It will show the flaws and shortcomings of his enemies.


link 01/13/17 04:46:09PM @the-hottest:

I like the idea.  It's the only place I am likely to see his Twitter comments first hand.

The Trump Twitter Feed is a good way to figure out what the Trump is doing. 

If Obama communicated this way I would feel the same. It's a direct feed to the president and it's going to be news everyday for the next 4 years.

This is a news site and it's news.

link 01/16/17 10:19:07AM @deepwaterdon:

The less we see of Trump the better. That being said, I say keep the feed, to remind some of the more realistically challenged of those around here to see the trees, regardless how thick the forest may be made to seem, so to speak.
