Power of Twitter

I was reading an article on Trump’s use of Twitter in his presidential campaign and the power social media also had in the recent UK elections. Many of Trump’s tweets (however controversial) get thousands, if not millions of views, likes and retweets. The old saying is any press is good press, but sometimes certain tweets can go too far, at the end of the day it needs to be remembered that the words are written in black and white and can be interpreted in different ways. A tweet can be deleted but it cannot be forgotten, especially if it has been seen and screenshot by thousands of people!

With the power of twitter and social media, do you think it is right that it can be used for political manipulation?

Take a look at the article and let me know your thoughts 🙂
