Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The first tweet of the war was sent on May 4, 2009. It was a promotion for Donald Trump’s TV show. Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube were just beginning to be used for socializing and sharing content, but they would soon be thrust into the center of civic life and global politics. #2 Through his Twitter account, Trump began posting about politics and drawing attention to himself. In the three years that followed, he would personally author some 15,000 tweets. #3 The Trump campaign was not just a marketing or political campaign, but also an information war fought by hundreds of millions of people across dozens of social media platforms. The participants ranged from politicians and celebrities to soldiers, criminals, and terrorists. #4 The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or Daesh in Arabic, launched a social media campaign in 2014 to promote their invasion of northern Iraq. They posted selfies of black-clad militants and Instagram images of convoys that looked like Mad Max come to life. Their demands for swift surrender were spread both regionally and personally, via the internet.
