If the average schlub in an office cubicle or at a counter or on a construction job spent hours of the workday pounding out 100 tweets, that person would soon be looking for new employment. However, if you happen to be the President of the United States, you can tweet the day away with no consequences. At least that’s true for President Donald Trump.
