"President Donald Trump Is a 'Master' of Throwing Cinder-Blocks off of Highway Overpasses"

...says cinder-block manufacturer Ev Williams.

From CNN:
Twitter co-founder calls President Trump 'master of the platform'

President Donald Trump is a "master" of Twitter, according to the company's co-founder Ev Williams.

"What Trump has done with Twitter is pretty genius, frankly," Williams said in an interview with CNN Business at the Collision tech conference in Toronto on Tuesday. "He's a master of the platform like few others."
And while the article makes it clear that Mr. Williams is well aware of how Donald Trump actually behaves on Twitter -- lying continuously, shitting on anyone who slights him, pimping neo-Nazis and generally using social media the same way Border Patrol thug Matthew Bowen used his truck --
A Border Patrol Agent Called Migrants "Subhuman" And "Savages" Before Hitting One With A Truck  
In texts to his fellow Border Patrol agents, Matthew Bowen frequently referred to undocumented immigrants in racist and violent terms.
-- Mr. Williams eases himself off the hook for how President Stupid is using the weapon Mr. Williams put in his hands using the time-tested excuse of whiny little punks everywhere.  The other kids are so much worse!
"The vast majority of the electorate is not on Twitter reading Trump's tweets and being convinced by that," said Williams. "What they're convinced much more by is the destructive power of Fox News, which is much, much more powerful and much more destructive than Twitter."
And as a two-time Twitter jail recidivist I find Mr. Williams' celebration of Trump's bottomless public scumbaggery hilarious.  Twitter is a privately-owned social media sewer with one set of rules for little people like me and an entirely different set of rules for blue checks and celebrities.

And everyone who uses it knows it.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

"Master of the Platform" conjures up images of steam swirling around a shadowy figure standing by his lonesome, lurking at Ye Olde Timey Train Station. President Clickbait is "master of the platform?" I suppose shit is master of the porcelain goddess. Fucksake.
