Donald Trump’s Historic REALTIME Tweets

As it happens, I haven’t been receiving phone updates from my Twitter. I hadn’t even used it until a few weeks ago when I decided to ramp it up after the election, choosing to go online and view all Tweets on my account at the same time. And so then, last week I decided to actually receive a few tweets in real time on my phone – including that of President Donald J Trump. So, this may not be the fist time it has happened, but…

Last night I was watching the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley who noted that Pres. Trump had not yet responded with his intentions in regard to challenging his blocked travel ban. Within two minutes of Scott Pelley’s statement, my phone chirped, and there was the Donald, with this now famous Tweet:

Right away, I decided I would immediately retweet and started pulling up my Twitter account to do so online. Before I could even get to my online Twitter, about 90 seconds after Pres. Trump’s tweet, Scott Pelley casually interjected that CBS (and 16 million Trump followers) had just received word that Trump intends to challenge the ban. Mr. Pelley then read the all capitalized tweet for the viewers.

Well, as I say, this may have happened before, but I haven’t really seen any conjecture about the potentially ethical ramifications of this new age of real time Twitter feedback. For instance, should a news organization of that scope let any politician pull their chain like that? And what, loose the scoop? If Trump had placed a phone cal to respond, he couldn’t have gotten past the producers before the ten o’clock news. If he were on standby, at least they could be sure of who they were talking to. What if a hacker manged to send a fake tweet? Instead of reaching Trump’s 20 million followers (maybe not), the misinformation with the potential for immediate national security ramifications would go straight from the terrorist hacker to anchor desk and CBS’s 50 million (?) viewers, and all the others networks with evening news and their 200 million (?) viewers. What if a terrorist had broken into the White House, and the president was under duress to say something dangerous to national security? How do you analyze and vet out the President’s tweet in less than 90 seconds?

Maybe it’s just sour grapes. That fact is, I couldn’t respond quickly enough to retweet for my 12 (?) followers, and so was upstaged by… Scott Pelley. How can I get more followers when I’m up against that kind of competition. Well, to CBS and all the others, you can count on this – as God is my witness – I will continue to do my part to proliferate the national hysteria when this phenomena happens again !!!

    Bane Romney Who?

    As predicted, not another word about Mitt Romney’s association to the Batman Hollywood “Bane” conspiracy and James Holmes and the Aurora massacre. Romney deftly changed focus by insulting the British in regard to Olympic preparedness. The obedient media dutifully followed. The power of money unseen. And, once again, the white elephant is silently highlighted by […]

    Confederate General Jeff Sessions Fires A Shot Across The Bow | Don’t Touch My Soldiers !!!

    The problem that intelligent and well-informed people face in Alabama, is that there are still plenty of rural places tucked away up in the holler where Johnny still hasn’t traveled farther from home than he has to go to fetch a bucket of water from the well. Even though this observation is quite literally true, it is just as unfortunate that it is also metaphorically true, and so extends to what otherwise appears to be “normal” people living in places like Huntsville. The fact is, the South ain’t gonna “rise again” in the sense that seems to motivate the cretins – that South simply don’t exist, that South was an entirely different animal whose politics and plantations are extinct.

    If ever a picture was worth 750,000 words, this one is surely it. Nowadays it isn’t hard to get up a few Uncle Tom’s to make a picture like this, a shameless and unabashed echo of George Wallace’s infamous school house stand in 1963.
