Twitter Is Dangerous 140 Characters At A Time!

Don’t get me wrong, I have a Twitter account. You can feel free to follow me any anytime. My Twitter handle is: @NeutronTom.

Twitter is great for sharing a YouTube video, or a link to a news story, or even a short question, statement, or announcement.

However, in the wrong hands, Twitter is dangerous. Twitter sucks when it comes to conveying emotion, background, or complex ideas. After all, how much detail can you convey when you are constrained to 140 characters?

Think about it for a moment how much complex thought, facts, and an intelligent argument can you get across to others when you have to carefully parse your words to 140 characters or less?

I don’t know about you, but it takes me more than 140 characters just to get the basic concept of exactly what you are trying to tell me.

(By the way, the above sentence took 139 characters just for me to convey a simple point on my thought processes.)

As an example of where reality slams headlong to the absurd let’s take a look at recent from tweets from Donald Trump. This is one person who consistently proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Twitter is dangerous.

(1) Donald J. Trump

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

(2) Donald J. Trump

Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!

(3) Donald J. Trump

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

Wow! these three tweets comprising a total of 420 characters (including spaces) are allegations of a huge political and legal bombshell. If true, this would be a bigger scandal than Watergate during the downfall of the Nixon Presidency. No, actually that’s wrong. Because of laws passed since The Nixon Watergate scandal, if true, this would be the biggest political scandal in modern times.

Let that sink in for a moment. A sitting President accuses the former President of serious crimes without proof or evidence, all in series of three tweets for a grand total of 420 characters.

Now let’s remove the Twitter character limit and imagine a statement which included the full details and background and see if it makes any more sense.

(Donald Trump’s full statement) – I can tell you I am really disturbed. The other night I was listening to The Alex Jones show you know that right-wing Conspiracy show and Alex was talking about how former President Obama personally tapped my phones at Trump Tower. This story was picked up the very next day by the website Breitbart News, you know the Alt Right fake news website.

This is outrageous and total McCarthyism. I have said this like a million times, just because virtually every one of my high-level campaign aides and even at least two of my cabinet officials met with Russian Intelligence Officers and the Russian Ambassador. Hell, my Son -in-law Justin Kushner and my now former National Intelligence Director, Michael Flynn even met with The Russian Ambassador at trump Tower. But like I said it was really nothing, and I know absolutely nothing about it. Believe me when I tell you this is nothing more than fake news.

Is it even legal for a sitting President to wire tap another Presidential candidate? I mean this is total nonsense that the Russians interfered with the election just to help me win is total nonsense. By the way Thank You, Vlad. I mean seriously, our intelligence agencies don’t really know. I mean I know a lot more than them when it comes to intelligence, after all, I have a very good brain.

Believe me, it’s true when I said that this was actually a 400-pound guy living in his mother’s basement in New Jersey and we will be presenting evidence to the congress in the near future.

Obama is a bad or sick guy and I am making it my life’s mission to destroy him, both politically, and personally, because he made fun of me at the White House Correspondence Dinner in 2011.

Stay tuned folks as we are going to prove that not only did Obama personally tap my wires at Trump Tower, Obama and the U.S. Intelligence community made up all these so called Russian connections just because they are all Democrats and sore losers.

And furthermore, I am going to present evidence to congress that proves that I actually won the popular vote fair and square as well. Those so called 2.88 million more people that supposedly voted for Hillary Clinton were all illegal votes from undocumented illegal immigrants and people who were bussed in by the thousands by bus from Massachusetts to New Hampshire or Vermont to vote illegally.

Just like my inaugural crowd was by far the biggest in U.S. history. Obama supporters in the U.S. Parks Department doctored the photos just to make me look bad. Believe me, I was there the crowd was yuggeeee!

I will sue everyone involved, just wait and see. Believe me.

God bless me and the United States of America.
(Donald Trump, 4:37 AM, from the Florida Whitehouse at Mar a Lago)

As the late Paul Harvey used to say; “Now You Know The Rest Of The Story”.

Is Twitter dangerous? I believe that for a lot of people it truly is. Only you can decide. Follow me on Twitter (@NeutronTom) to find out for yourself.
