Washington Post: Now you can see what Donald Trump sees every time he opens Twitter. “Users of Twitter will understand…that it can be tricky to know what someone else sees when he or she fires up the application. Everyone follows a different group of people, and that colors the information they receive. To that end, we’ve created @trumps_feed, an account that checks whom Trump follows every five minutes and then retweets any new tweets from them over that period. The net result is a replication of what Trump would see on those occasions that he switches over from the Mentions tab.” I think this is fascinating because you can see what’s driving a person’s thinking and reactions (to a greater or lesser extent, of course). I would love to see a tool like this for all world leaders on Twitter.
