It's important for any person that claims to represent the people to interact with them directly. I think this is one reason, among many, why Donald Trump has made an interesting decision. For the first time in history, you can tweet at the President, and the President tweets back.

I'm considering making a new campaign promise:

I will be the first President of the United States of America to post on the #Fediverse. I will also ensure that a new grant for innovators in #socialmedia can be established through executive action. With the Freedom Dividend, I hope many open source developers can come out of the woodwork and contribute to #opensource projects like #Mastodon and #Gab 24/7.

Can you imagine: https://social.whitehouse.gov/ ?
