We analyzed words he tweeted, enemies he called out, nicknames he used, and all other kind of ridiculousness. It was our goal to highlight the insane communication style of the leader of the free world, however, it also was also our way of coping.
Above are the top words that we think Donald Trump actually tweeted, himself during his presidency. Using an algorithm that started with a simple Naive Bayes classifier and grew into a mixture of gradient boosting and random forests, we attempted to separate out the tweets we thought Donald Trump was actually tweeting, himself, from those likely posted by his staff.
We kept track of weekly numbers for both likely Trump tweets and likely Staff tweets during his presidency and stored all the data in an ElasticSearch instance with a bunch of charts and graphs. Weekly tweet counts grew significantly during his term to a high point of 326 total tweets the week of October 26, 2020 (more than 46 tweets per day).
Trump tweeted about people a lot. He hated a lot of people. There are some of the most popular that we tracked and totaled during his presidency. Sadly, Ted Cruz could barely even make this list with only 10 mentions in four years.
At one point, we had a set of up-to-the-minute dashboards online for people to enjoy, along with a regular set of features and charts posted on our blog. Feel free to look through what we have kept online and enjoy.

Donald Trump famously said in late 2016, "I know words, I have the best words." This site's goal was to analyze his word use on Twitter, and we did that, and it's over. Thankfully.
