Scott Adams, the creator of the famous comic strip Dilbert, appeared on Fox and Friends to praise President Donald Trump's compulsive Twitter usage.
Trump's Twitter account has become one of the defining aspects of his presidency.
He's tweeted as much as 40 times in one day, and his sudden announcements in policy changes, cabinet shuffles, outright lies, and nonsense words routinely upend markets and morale at the White House. At one point, his staff sought a way to put his tweets on a 15 minute delay.

@revrrlewis Yeah because Obama was so impersonal. We were somehow awaiting Donald Trump for warmth. https://t.co/yRgMLUd99W— Lisa Borden (@Lisa Borden)1572955377.0
