Donald Trump ignores critics, revitalizes presidential bully pulpit on Twitter
The Washington Times - 12/13/2016
“I would hope that he’d continue to use Twitter even as president, as it is a natural medium of communication for him,” said John P. Wihbey, a journalism professor at Northeastern University who studies presidential communication.
“It is useful for citizens to know what he’s thinking about and his ideas on policy issues. I’m all for a politics, and a political communications strategy, that engages more with citizens in a straightforward and truthful way,” he said.
Mr. Wihbey also suggested that Mr. Trump tone down his rhetoric and refrain from name-calling.
“He needs to embrace his role as an example for young people, in particular,” he said.
