If you're familiar with the Twitterverse, you know they track and post trending hashtags and topics.
Sometimes the meaning of a trending topic is obvious.
Other times, they can be very misleading.
And thanks to the United States first Twitter President, some of those baffling trending topics are courtesy of the account @realDonaldTrump—the personal account Donald Trump had before he became President. After the election, Trump continued to use his personal account instead of the official @POTUS account that has been transferred from one President to the next.
The latest misleading trending topic was "Meet the Depressed."
People were hoping for a mental health awareness campaign. But once again, the source resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
On Monday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted:
"Thank you to Great Republican [Senator John Kennedy] for the job he did in representing both the Republican Party and myself against Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd on Meet the Depressed!"
