In the recent past, other than a handful of TV interviews and impromptu Q&A sessions, Trump has relied mostly on Twitter to communicate with public.

His tweets have covered a wide range of topics including foreign policy, 2016 election, political opponents, and commerce.

When asked if the president-elect will continue to heavily utilize Twitter, Sean Spicer, the incoming White House Press Secretary, told WPRI, "I think that his use of social media in particular...is gonna be something that's never been seen before...He has this direct pipeline to the American people, where he can talk back and forth."
