Who said the tweet storm would end with the election? Well before President Donald Trump was sworn into the Oval Office on January 20th, he took over our social media accounts as Tweeter-in-chief and, no, he hasn't stopped.
From moving the market with ever-changing views of American companies to airing his numerous grievances with the mass media, Trump has managed to keep us glued to our phone screens in just 140 characters or less.
According to data from Twitter on Trump's first 100 days of tweeting, the top words he uses on the platform are "great," "America/American," "news/media" and "jobs." He also has a penchant for tweeting about "fake news," which is his sixth most-tweeted word.
Trump's top tweeted handles are @WhiteHouse, @NYTimes, @foxandfriends, @FoxNews, @VP, @CNN and @POTUS, and his favorite hashtags are #MAGA, #AmericaFirst, #ICYMI, #USA and #Obamacare.
Trump's most-retweeted message was one commenting on the protests the day after his inauguration.
His most-retweeted tweet of all time is from Election Day.
Peaceful protests are a hallmark of our democracy. Even if I don't always agree, I recognize the rights of people to express their views.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2017
As we move into Trump's 100th day, and beyond, TheStreet takes a look at just a few of the tweets that have already come to define both his time in office and his impact on the American economy.
TODAY WE MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 8, 2016
Here are the highlights:
While the wall has and always will be the biggest headline when Trump talks Mexico, it's hard to forget when mention of a certain tariff had investors in Constellation Brands ( STZ) and others wondering if happy hour would be a little less happy in the days to come.
Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough. Massive trade deficits & little help on the very weak border must change, NOW!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 27, 2017

Everybody is arguing whether or not it is a BAN. Call it what you want, it is about keeping bad people (with bad intentions) out of country!
It wasn't too long ago that it was impossible to go on Twitter without reading about a travel ban that is still making headlines. Trump's controversial order saw CEOS ranging from Starbucks' (SBUX) Howard Schultz to Tesla's (TSLA) Elon Musk to Twitter's (TWTR) Jack Dorsey taking to the Internet to protest.
After being forced to apologize for its bad and inaccurate coverage of me after winning the election, the FAKE NEWS @nytimes is still lost!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2017
My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2017
When Nordstrom (JWN) ultimately decided to drop Ivanka Trump's fashion line, her father naturally took to Twitter to defend his daughter. Though the tweet shouldn't overshadow Kellyanne Conway's "Go buy Ivanka's stuff."
I am working on a new system where there will be competition in the Drug Industry. Pricing for the American people will come way down!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2017
Does anybody really believe that a reporter, who nobody ever heard of, "went to his mailbox" and found my tax returns? @NBCNews FAKE NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2017
Another tax day has come and gone, and yes, the media and the rest of the world still wants to see a 1040.
After seven horrible years of ObamaCare (skyrocketing premiums & deductibles, bad healthcare), this is finally your chance for a great plan!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2017
The bashing of Obamacare (and Obama) began long before the election and continued long after. Trump had a "repeal and replace" victory in his sights until the bill was ultimately pulled.
The Republican House Freedom Caucus was able to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. After so many bad years they were ready for a win!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2017
The case of close but no cigar saw the dollar tumble and Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF) take a heavy hit as Trump shifted his focused to deregulation and tax reform. Following a reveal of Trump's tax plan, his gaze has since shifted back to his old enemy as the Freedom Caucus changed its course.
"The first 90 days of my presidency has exposed the total failure of the last eight years of foreign policy!" So true. @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 17, 2017
Though Trump has checked off meetings with the leaders of Canada, Germany, China and more, 90 days may be a little early for a foreign policy self-evaluation, consider he still hasn't quite decided what he wants to do with NAFTA.
No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 21, 2017
Here's to another 1,360 days.
