When Trump’s young social media manager saw the tweet, he was perplexed. He typically typed and sent Trump’s tweets for the boss, but in this case he hadn’t. He did recall that Trump had been spending a lot of time in his office lately playing around with a new Android smartphone.
“The moment I found out Trump could tweet himself was comparable to the moment in ‘Jurassic Park’ when Dr. Grant realized that velociraptors could open doors,” recalled Justin McConney, who was the Trump Organization’s director of social media from 2011 to 2017. “I was like, ‘Oh no.'”
The full story is grimly fascinating considering that the moment described ultimately led to near-daily international headlines. You should read it.
