In April, Donald Trump addressed his twitter habit during a rally. He told the crowd that he would be giving up tweeting after he became President, saying the behavior was "not presidential."
He seems to have changed his tune, though. In a recent interview Trump told the press that not only would he continue to use Twitter, he would be doing so from his personal account as opposed to the established @POTUS account.
"I think, I’ll keep it . . . so I’ve got 46 million people right now — that’s a lot, that’s really a lot — but 46 million — including Facebook, Twitter and ya know, Instagram, so when you think that you’re 46 million there, I’d rather just let that build up and just keep it @realDonaldTrump, it’s working,"
So how do the people feel about Trump and his Twitter habit? According to a recent poll by NBC/WSJ, most people would really rather he just didn't. A stunning 69% of Americans would like to see the Commander-In-Tweet just stop tweeting. As a nation, we kind of want to take away his phone.

The breakdown is about as divided as you'd expect. 89% of the Democrats polled would like to see Trump tone the tweeting down. By contrast, the Republicans polled showed 47% disapproval (46% said they're fine with it.), 67% of Independents feel negatively about the POTUS tweeting.
55% of people polled, regardless of their party, have a problem with the fact that Trump uses Twitter to announce policy decisions and his own personal opinions on current events. According to the numbers, when Trump drops a new tweet, most Americans look like this:
Trump is as opinionated on this as he is about everything else. Take a cleansing breath if you need it and move on to find out what he has to say on all of this.
