A software developer has created a Twitter bot that transforms President Donald Trump’s tweets into an official statement format, the Atlantic reports.
The bot, @RealPressSecBot, was created over the weekend by Russel Neiss and spits out official statements based on Trump’s tweets almost as soon he writes them.
"[Former Obama staffer] Pat Cunnane tweeted on June 4 that he mocked up one of the president’s tweets about the London attacks in a traditional presidential format," Neiss told the Atlantic. "It struck me as a really powerful image, the idea being that essentially, at their core, these tweets are literally presidential statements for media use. Putting it in the traditional format made it all the more jarring between what we’ve expected to see from those formal press releases — and the kind of stuff we see coming out of the president’s Twitter account on a regular basis."
Trump’s recent tweet lashing out at London Mayor Sadiq Khan has prompted backlash from many Democrats because the president twisted Khan’s words.
