President-elect Donald Trump explained why he tweets so much compared to contemporary statesmen:
If the press would cover me accurately & honorably, I would have far less reason to "tweet." Sadly, I don't know if that will ever happen!

Over the past several weeks numerous media pundits, some of them completely unknown to the public, have attacked Trump for “tweeting too much,” a complaint of which is a near reversal from when the mainstream media was more concerned about the content of his tweets than the volume.
The reason for this reversal? Simple: the establishment media realizes that if President Trump talks to the public directly, instead of through them, they will lose the ability to twist his words and inflame public opinion against him.
Social media – and the Internet at large – is Trump’s direct conduit to voters, and that’s how he won the presidential race; he was able to speak to millions of voters himself while forcing the mainstream media into the awkward position of trying to attack him while simultaneously losing audiences and influence.
In short, the establishment media wants to centrally control the flow of information to the public so they can dictate “reality,” but now they can’t, so that’s why they’re attacking Trump for tweeting – and that’s why they claim honest news from the alternative media is “fake news.”
“Of course the mainstream media desperately does not want you to look at ‘the man behind the curtain,'” social commentator Michael Snyder noted. “They just want you to stay plugged into the ‘programming’ that they are feeding you without asking any questions.”
“However, an increasing number of people are beginning to recognize that the mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the establishment and that it is promoting the agenda of the establishment.”
