Trump's Twitter is the best thing that has happened to Republicans

This election showed social media can be more powerful than liberal mainstream media. The Liberal media threw the kitchen sink at Trump yet he still won. He did so through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

There are a lot of popular Conservatives on social media sites and the Republicans need to start a Social Media Network that pushes stories and drives the coverage. Liberals do this all the time.

The stories will start out on Politico, Huffington Pst and Slate and eventually be on CNN, MSNBC and ABC, NBC and CBS. Sometimes it will be the same story almost word for word.

Look at the recount story. It started with a story saying Hillary's Lawyers were pushing her to challenge the election through a recount. Hillary knew she would look like a hypocrite if she did it and surprise, Jill Stein pops up and raises more money than she did her entire campaign.

Artificial Intelligence predicted Trump's win based on social media engagements.

Using an artificial intelligence algorithm that mined social media, MogIA predicted Trump would win when almost no one else did.

"If Trump loses, it will defy the data trend for the first time in the last 12 years since internet engagement began in full earnest," Rai wrote in a report sent to CNBC on October 28. Not that anyone was listening. Rai also pointed out that Trump had managed to overtake even Barrack Obama's engagement number in 2008 by 25 percent.

Look at these numbers:

On Facebook, Donald Trump collected a 208,099,876 Facebook engagements and 12 million Facebook fans. Hillary Clinton, who spent early 2016 fending off Bernie Sanders while Trump consolidated support, attracted 72 million engagements and 7.9 million Facebook fans. Her slick mostly image-based campaign won urban voters, but Trump’s grassroots, raw content crowdsourced from rallies was a bigger hit with his fans.

On Twitter, Trump stayed ahead with 89,459,006 total engagements to Hillary’s 41,572,396.

If the general election follows the same pattern as the primaries, the social media data collected indicates that Donald Trump will be the next President.

The election was a big suprise to the media but not AI.

Republicans can learn from Trump and Twitter. Just look at the news coverage now. Just about every story about Trump is negative but when you go back to Obama's transition it was as if he walked on water if you listened to the media.

The media wants Trump to stop tweeting. Twitter allows Trump to speak past them and drive the news cycle.
