Twitter was founded in 2006. Fourteen years later, and perhaps thanks to President Trump’s moving example, the universe masters seem to have learned to spread it.
This week alone, a large number of influential politicians and business leaders have tried at least to use the social media platform in the same incidental originality with the danger that characterizes many of Mr. Trump’s tweets.
On Thursday, Mike Bloomberg responded to a funny tweet from Mr Trump – putting him against his rival for the Democratic nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders – by telling Mr. Trump that their mutual affinities had nothing but his contempt.
“We know many of the same people in New York. Behind your back they laugh at you and call you a clown barking the carnival.” They know that you inherited a fortune and wasted it stupid deals and incompetence.
Mr. Bloomberg, among other things, competes with Mr. Trump on his own terms on social media – and Never spent any money shortage in doing this. But he wasn’t alone last week expressing himself on social media.
Late Tuesday, Lloyd Blankfein, the 65-year-old Goldman Sachs chairman, tweets very late, on Tuesday, about the possibility of Senator Sanders becoming the Democratic presidential nominee.
“If Democrats continue to nominate Sanders, then the Russians will have to reconsider who will work for the best solution for the United States. Sanders is just polarizing like Trump and he will destroy our economy and not care about our army. If I am Russian, I will go with Sanders this time,” Mr. Blankfein tweets.
Mr Blankfein’s tweet came just one day after a series of tweets from Jay Carney, the former White House press secretary and senior vice president of global corporate affairs at Amazon. Mr. Carney Criticize For critics of an opinion article he wrote in The New York Times (also about Mr. Sanders), he criticizes the choice of his words and indicates that one might be Bot.
Mr. Carney’s surprising series of unusual and aggressive tweets makes sense in the context of the Amazon’s less special ecosystem. His boss, Jeff Bezos, recently lit Twitter through his private position, which seemed to have Mr. Bezos met Liso at the Super Bowl.
Historically, Goldman Sachs and Amazon are known for their very careful and kind corporate messages. But in 2020 an example It appears that the Senate Speaker (clearly the ghost of Senator Sanders, who is contesting the general election), has softened his fingers on Twitter.
Elon Musk, another rich and powerful man, was famous for his strong internet behavior – in 2018, the US Securities and Exchange Commission He was charged with securities fraud For what she called “a series of fake and misleading tweets about a potential transaction for taking Tesla in private.” But he even made a little excitement this month when he released a song called “Don’t suspect Vibe,” then She highlighted that she became the most popular eighth song On SoundCloud. (Early Wednesday morningMr. Musk also tweeted Mr Sanders.)
John Michham, a presidential historian, said that business leaders in the United States have long been pointing out how to behave openly through the launch of the presidency. In shareholder events, for example, he said, everything from the podium to the branded background is often organized to look “as a place where the President of the United States can reasonably speak.”
“Before Trump there was a linguistic visual of the dignity and attractiveness that American companies borrowed from the presidency,” said Mr. Meacham. “And now, since the president has become a hobbs bullying on the Internet, they borrow it. Because at least on their minds, this is where people are located.”
Tweet this week aims to influence voters, and Mr Trump has devised a unique way to influence in this regard. Rebecca Katz, who served as communications consultant to Mayor Bill de Palacio and Cynthia Nixon, attributed tweets this week to the growing blurring lines between politics, business, the media and celebrities.
“Despite the few businessmen who may admit it, Trump’s rise has led them to believe they can do what he did,” said Mrs. Katz. “Trump has made clear to them that the way to make news and attract attention is not respectable. It is outrageous.”
Jack Gref, a fellow at the University of Birmingham and co-author of a paper on the linguistic difference in Mr. Trump’s Twitter account, said in an interview that the president’s style of jobs was not arbitrary.
“The difference in the style you see on Trump’s Twitter account is far from some random garbage fire,” he said. “He is very methodical.”
He said, for example, Mr Trump’s Twitter language became significantly more formal once he became the Republican presidential candidate in 2016. He then returned to informal work after issuing Hollywood Access bar. Since the president’s inauguration, Mr. Gref has said that the official language of his language has spread again. (Mr. Gref’s analysis ran from 2009 to early 2018 and did not include the impeachment process.)
Mr. Gref said that this unofficial character was characterized by short sentences, an abundance of pronouns, contractions, questions and direct interactions with other users on the site.
“The fact that people imitate it is further evidence that it is not just random,” said Mr. Griff. “It was appreciated by people who are not just political critics or not just journalists but who are really trying to do it. They realize there is an art of what he’s doing.”
