Hello! You’re probably wondering why this post is named “All About Twitter TeamTrump Potusmorse”. Don’t worry, we’ll explain shortly. But first, let’s talk about a few topics for which you might enjoy this article: the US Presidential Election, President-Elect Donald Trump, the term morse code – and the social media platform Twitter.
Twitter is a great way to follow political news, and it can be a way of initiating discussions around issues, especially on Twitter. The short posts and ‘tweets’ that you see on the platform are called tweets. Although the social media site was originally made for users in Japan, it has now become an international phenomenon. It is almost impossible to keep track of everything that is being posted on Twitter, but there are some topics that are always worth discussing on the site itself.
In this article, we will explore why Twitter is such a big part of US elections. We will also learn more about President Trump’s use of Twitter, as well as what’s in store for his twitter account once he moves into the White House and become President Trump, in January 2017.
Why Should You Follow The Election On Twitter?
The ‘Tweets’ section of the platform has become an integral part of political discussions. We are talking about the official Twitter accounts of political parties and politicians. These people are among the most interesting to follow on Twitter. In fact, you can discuss the election with these candidates, and even ask them questions.
Once you start following a candidate or party’s Twitter account, you’ll now be able to keep track of what that person is saying at any time. You can see what they had for lunch, watch their speeches and debates, etc. If you have a candidate who is following you back, you can talk to them directly, and propose questions that they could later answer during a live debate or in an interview. We are sure they would love that!
The US Presidential Election has been one of the most discussed topics on Twitter, and here’s why:
The office of the President is one of the most powerful positions in the world. The next President will be at the command of 1,500 nuclear weapons, as well as all military decisions around the globe. In the US, this person will have the ability to change laws and pass new ones, as well as appoint and fire judges.
You may wonder why you should be following the election on Twitter in particular: what are the reasons? The reason is very simple – powerful people start to take notice of you. The more followers a person has, the more they are likely to be talked about in media, or even at social gatherings. You can also be part of a large movement; every single person can add to this movement, creating change.
What Is Morse Code?
You might have wondered why we mentioned the term morse code in the title, and what this has to do with the 2016 US Presidential Election. If you haven’t heard of morse code, or you don’t know what it is, don’t worry. The information in this section will be useful to you nevertheless.
Morse code was an early form of telegraph communication invented by American telegraphist Samuel Morse in the mid 19th century. Morse code is still used by amateur radio operators, and other forms of digital communication. It comprises an ever-increasing series of dots and dashes that are transmitted by means of a simple telegraph key.
Here’s how it works: a person will press down the telegraph key for a specific amount of time, and send a dot or dash. This person will then release the key, and key down again for another specific amount of time, to send another dot or dash. The dots and dashes are the letters of the alphabet, as well as punctuation marks, numbers, etc.
