Trump’s Twitter Tactics Backfire Among Millennials

November 14, 2016


Social media, specifically Twitter, has proved to be a very powerful tool in the 2016 United States Presidential Election, especially from now President-Elect Donald Trump.

Junior Daniel Hanson interviews a fellow Hofstra Student about Trump’s tweets.

In order to gather information on just how impactful Mr. Trump was while online, we took to Hofstra University’s student center to hear the thoughts from students. Generally, most students believed that Mr. Trump has been vulgar on his Twitter account by taking shots at women, immigrants and Hillary Clinton, herself.

Students also believe that social media will continue to be a powerful resource in upcoming political cycles, and may even replicate the intensity that we saw in 2016.
