Trump: Social Media Made Me President

In an interview airing on Sunday on “Fox Business Network,” Trump said that with his use of twitter, he could bypass “unfair media coverage” and speak directly.

“Tweeting is like a typewriter — when I put it out, you put it immediately on your show,” he said, according to a transcript released by the network. “I doubt I would be here if weren’t for social media, to be honest with you.”

He called his social media accounts on Facebook Inc (FB.O), Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) and Instagram “a tremendous platform.”

“When somebody, says something about me, I am able to go bing, bing, bing and I take care of it.

The other way, I would never have got the word out,” he said.

Trump joined twitter in 2009 and had since then tweeted 36,200 times. He follows only 45 twitter handles mostly family members and his businesses but he is followed by 40.9 million handles.
