President-elect Donald Trump declared in an interview released late Tuesday that he dislikes tweeting and uses Twitter as a defense against media.
“Look, I don’t like tweeting,” Trump insisted during a Fox News interview scheduled to air Wednesday. "I have other things I could be doing.”
“But I get very dishonest media, very dishonest press. And it’s my only way that I can counteract. When people make misstatements about me, I’m able to say it and call it out.”
Trump additionally promised he would reduce his Twitter activity once the press treats him more respectfully. “Now if the press were honest, which it’s not, I would absolutely not use Twitter,” he told host Ainsley Earhardt on “Fox & Friends," adding, "I wouldn’t have to.”
The Question you should ask before you agree to the reason put forward by Donald Trump, Is he the only popular figure who gets attacked by the press? What about the personal attacks against celebrities and popular people who do not belong to the press?
Obviously his reason does not hold water.

Trump has repeatedly used Twitter for attacking opponents ranging from lawmakers to foreign leaders and even celebrities.
Critics have voiced concern, however, that the social media platform’s 140-character limit is too simplistic for complex policy issues.
