If you follow Trump on Twitter - please unfollow him

I know a lot of Democrats/progressives/liberals follow him because they want to come up with smart/snarky responses to his tweets, and then you can often get a lot of likes out of that.

However, if even a small percentage of Dems/progressives/liberals/resistance unfollow him, it can hurt his ego.

And, if you REALLY want to track his tweets, you can follow @UnFollowTrump - I think it's an auto-account that just tweets out the text of whatever Donny himself tweets. And, if you want to do it that way, you can then go directly to Trump's twitter account and get your smart and snarky response in there without having to follow him

1. I am following him too for information

But his tweets are well covered and so I will unfollow him.

100% agree. Make him lower than those we respect

2. I never followed him nor would consider following.

I do look at his tweets. I have a link saved which takes me to his timeline in a browser.

Twitter knows I see them, but I don't think that 'Rump does.

4. You can see Trump's tweets without following him:

Just follow @UnfollowTrump instead.

There, now you have no excuse.

5. Thank you for this post

You can see all tweets, even deleted ones, without giving him the benefit of another follower. As a bonus there are a lot of clever and snarky replies.

7. I don't twitter, but I have a question

Clicking through on tweets, I know that I can read tweets and the replies to them from the general public. Some Twitterers respond to people who reply, but many of them don't, particularly the famous or notorious ones.

So my question is, does Trump ever respond to people who comment on his tweets? I like looking clever as much as the next person, but I like to have some evidence that the target of my snark noticed or was bothered.

8. Famous folk generally don't see your replies.

There is a setting that people with many followers generally use which notifies them when only people THEY follow reply or like their tweet, rather than the default setting of notifying when any rando replies/likes.

Nevertheless, everyone else lurking can see your replies, so it does shape the conversation. But itís less satisfying than being able to get in their face with your reply.
