This blog post provides several ways of predicting whether tweets posted under Trump’s Twitter account are actually from the president himself or one of his staffers. Because Trump prefers to address the nation on official matters using his personal Twitter account, he often shares his account with his staff. This implies that the president does not always post all his messages on Twitter. For instance, during the election period, Trump liked to tweet from an Android phone, while his staffer tweeted from an iPhone. Therefore, it is easy to conclude that the tweets which came from an Android phone were most likely sent by Trump himself.
