Remember the time Donald Trump wrote “covfefe” in a tweet, which become a hilarious meme? Rather than tweeting that he wants to step down or whatever, which would be taken very seriously and cause national uproar, I would tweet something that would have a similar effect to “covfefe”. I think the following tweet would fulfil that aim: “The only way America can succeed is through sertave.” Given the tweet’s context and important tone, the lack of meaning in “sertave” would likely make people wonder or fear what on Earth it is, sparking another explosion of internet jokes for everyone to enjoy.
I wouldn’t tweet anything. I am being serious here. Using something that does not belong to you is wrong. Hence, tweeting from a Twitter account that does not belong to you is wrong. Since I am not Trump, I should not use his Twitter account to tweet anything. Apart from the moral stance, I’d be too concerned about my future. What if Trump found out? I’d be punished, without a doubt. I might even end up in jail. With a criminal record, I’d find it much harder to get a job or travel.
Donald Trump’s Twitter account is one of the most effective ways of getting a message out to millions of people. It would be a chance to spread the message of peace and happiness – but that would be boring. Instead, I think I would probably post memes every day and maybe spread some fake news. Just think about all the politicians who’d be looking at it and wondering what on Earth is happening. Imagine the looks of utter horror and confusion on people’s faces, like former US president Barack Obama and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. It’s enough to make anyone tear up with laughter. That’s why I would irresponsibly and selfishly use Trump’s Twitter account.
I would tweet this: “From now on, to ensure the integrity of presidential decision making, I will no longer be tweeting. I think I have been tweeting too much and have not been actually doing my job as US president. I usually find myself tweeting and checking out other politicians’ accounts (especially Hillary Clinton’s, who I have not heard of since my victory) rather than attending to important matters of state. It’s especially unhealthy to be tweeting at 2am. My appearance has become more ‘orange’ of late, leading to more and more of my citizens criticising me. BUT, I will be selling my account for US$10 million, tax included. Make Twitter great again!”
Two words: “I resign.” It’s simple yet ingenious. We all know that anything Donald Trump tweets will go viral so why not break the news on the internet? Imagine that! (Arguably) the most egotistical, misogynistic and racist US president in history telling the entire world that he is quitting. There would be mass parties, memes, and celebrations. The entire world would rejoice!
I would probably type something cryptic – one or two random letters, an emoji, some apostrophes, a few hyphens, or dollar signs, perhaps. That would have people scratching their heads for months!
