Former President Donald Trump was booted from Twitter earlier this month for his constant broadcasting of disinformation, like the kind that eventually read to the deadly and devastating siege of the United States Capitol on January 6th.
Before his ban, Twitter was Trump's favorite social media outlet for firing off-the-cuff smears and outright lies to his nearly 90 million followers.
Over the years, Trump's tweets developed an extremely specific voice, featuring random capitalization of letters, berating nicknames for his enemies, repetitive punctuation, rampant typos, and boasts about his wealth and power.
With President Joe Biden inaugurated on January 20th, the current President's tweets are far less erratic and incendiary.
Nevertheless, one Twitter user—@TylerDinucci—imagined how Biden would tweet if his temperament were more similar to Donald Trump's.
The results were scarily accurate.
Nearly every word is taken directly from Trump's thousands of past tweets, from "DINO" (a play on Trump's famous "RINO"—Republican in Name Only), degrading adjectives like "Phony," and baseless claims that Biden won a state he actually lost in the 2020 election.
The imagined tweet lobs insults at Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), the moderate Democratic Senator expected to be the biggest inter-party obstacle to bold legislation in Congress. Dinucci imagined Biden lobbing a classically sexist Trumpian insult, "Joe Womanchin," at the Senator.
People were amazed at the accuracy.
Many joked that the tweet brought on some memories that were still too raw.
Trump has yet to replace Twitter with another platform.
