The White House has a “tinker bong” to keep tabs on the president’s tweets.
The president’s “tweeps list” will be updated weekly, the White House said Wednesday, noting the president was “tweeting, tweeting, tweeting” during the first week of his administration.
“The president has the ability to keep a list of tweets that he’s looking at,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during the daily press briefing.
“He’ll look at it and then when he makes a decision about what to tweet, he’ll take that into account.”
The tweets included the tweet that went viral in the wake of Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, in which he said Comey “better hope there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”
Sanders said the president “takes tweets seriously,” and “talks to his staff on Twitter about things that are going on in the world.”
