President Donald Trump may have given up his weekly primetime TV slot as host of "Celebrity Apprentice," but since he took the oath of office, every day is a new episode of Trump's White House — on Twitter.
In his first 50 days as President of the United States, Trump has never skipped a day communicating with the country via @RealDonaldTrump, tweeting more than 260 times since Inauguration Day.
That's an average of 36 tweets per week. By comparison, Barack Obama tweeted from the now-archived @POTUS account a total of 352 times since the handle was created in May 2015.

Despite poor initial ratings — a majority of Americans across party lines say that Trump's use of Twitter is generally a bad idea, according to January polling from NBC News and the WSJ— the president shows no sign of slowing down.
We analyzed every tweet sent from @RealDonaldTrump since January 20th. Here's what we've deduced:
Tune In Around 8:22 a.m. ET
Rise and shine. It's time for a message from the president.
Donald Trump has only given five in-person press conferences since taking office (four of them jointly conducted with foreign leaders), but he addresses the country every morning on Twitter, as early as 6 o'clock in the morning.
The average time for a morning tweet? 8:22 a.m. ET — on particularly stormy mornings, Trump will send as many as seven tweets in a row.
