Ever since Donald Trump became President of the United States, his Twitter account has become a source of entertainment and intrigue for millions around the world. His tweets have been known to be outrageous, controversial and sometimes even offensive. But despite all this, there is no denying that he knows how to craft the perfect tweet – one that will capture attention and generate conversation.
So what’s his secret? How does he come up with these gems? Well, we may never know exactly how it goes down in Trump Tower when it comes to crafting a tweet but here is our step-by-step guide on how you can get your own tweets just as good as The Donald’s.
Check out whether or not Trump returns to twitter!
1. Make extremely bold statements
Whether it is about a political topic, celebrity gossip or just random musings, Trump’s tweets are always full of statements that are bold and attention-grabbing.
If you’ve seen some of Trump’s funniest quotes, you’ll know a lot of them stem from Tweets. Like the time he declared war on windmills!
Notice how the threat is immediately identified, followed by a cursing out of the media. Perfection! The tweet covers an impending threat, a helpless victim (the bald eagle, who doesn’t love those?) & someone to blame (global warming). The three pillars of a perfect Trump twee.
2. Sprinkle in satire:
Trump’s tweets are often full of satire – which is why they can be so witty and entertaining. Whether it’s sarcastic jabs at his political opponents or poking fun at the media, satire plays a huge role in Trump’s tweet formula.
To get your satire just as good as The Donald’s, you’ll need to be creative and think outside the box. Try looking at things from a different perspective – is there something funny, ironic or absurd about the situation that you can comment on? Don’t hesitate to get personal, there’s nothing better than a personal attack based on someone’s appearance and/or behaviour!
3. Include your own unique hashtag:
Trump’s tweets are often accompanied by an interesting hashtag that summarizes the tweet perfectly. For example, when he declared he was running for president back in 2015, the hashtag read “MakeAmericaGreatAgain”.
Hashtags are a great way to make your tweet more shareable and get it trending on Twitter. Think of something clever or catchy that will sum up your tweet in one word or phrase – this could be anything from a joke to a pun or a play on words.
4. Use strong language:
Trump’s tweets often contain overly-dramatic words and phrases that exaggerate the message he’s trying to convey. Words such as “disaster”, “enraged” and “destroyed” are all common in his tweets – and they certainly make them stand out!
So if you want people to take notice of your tweets, try to use words that convey a strong emotion. Whether it’s excitement, anger or frustration – make sure your words reflect the sentiment.
Let’s take an example of a boring statement by a less dramatic politician called Bernie Sanders.
What’s wrong with this tweet you say? Pfft, only just about everything! Where’s the victim? Where’s the perpetrator? Boring! Let’s Trump it up a bit.
Ahh, much better! They took our Christmas!
5. Don’t forget the visuals:
Finally, Trump knows the power of a good visual. Whether it’s an image of himself looking “presidential” or some creative meme, visuals can help make your tweets stand out from the crowd and grab attention.
So don’t underestimate how important images and videos can be when it comes to creating a great tweet.
So there you have it! Follow these five steps and you’ll be tweeting like Trump in no time. Get creative, get bold and don’t forget the satire – before long, people will be retweeting your tweets just as much as they are retweeting The Donald’s! Good luck!
