Trump Tweets Lose Their Sting: The President's Interaction Rates Have Plummeted Since He First Took Office
Audrey McNamara


Trump's Twitter presence is losing its sting. A measure of the president's “interaction rate” shows that the president has been packing less of a punch with each month he's been in office, according to data from CrowdTangle. Trump's interaction rate has fallen from 0.55 percent in November 2016, the month he was elected, to 0.16 percent so far this month. The metric measures retweets and likes per tweet divided by the size of his following. May is set to be the lowest month for Trump's Twitter interaction rate since January 2016. One explanation for the commander in chief's “bad ratio” could be that his inflammatory tweets, which were once novel, have now become customary. Attacking the FBI and accusing government officials of treason are near-daily tweet fodder for the president. Since April 1, Trump has tweeted the phrase “no collusion” 54 times, “no obstruction” 30 times, and “witch hunt” 20 times.

2. I heard a comedian say recently....

(I can't recall who it was, but it was someone who tours and sells out theaters, and this is paraphrasing)

That if they were as redundant with the same shtick as Trump is, they wouldn't be able to book an outhouse inside 3 months.

You can only flog the same, tired bullshit for so long.

Take care, A Heretic I am!

4. Trump is just a disputatious troll looking for attention

It always seemed members of the media were the only ones who ever really cared about Trump's tweets.

6. There's lower interaction rate because all the robot accounts were banned.

He can't even play with himself on Twitter!

7. From what I've seen, 90% of the pro-Trump bots on Twitter are gone.

Right after Trump took office, every time he tweeted it seemed like 1000 (probably more) bots immediately replied & retweeted. I saw the same ones over & over, tweet after tweet, often replying in the same order.

Now, they're gone, I haven't seen them for a long time. No doubt this has lowered his interaction rate.
