Hosted by Bill Weir

In 140 characters—multiplied across thousands of tweets—President Donald Trump has revolutionized the flow of communication from the nation’s highest office.  As a reality TV star, he experienced firsthand the reach and marketing potential of social media and then leveraged it in running a successful and unprecedented presidential campaign. Today, his Twitter use is also at the center of constant controversy.
 
In a one-hour special report “Twitter & Trump,” host Bill Weir explores the evolution of President Trump’s Twitter use from its very beginnings to becoming a political weapon in the insult filled primaries to his use of the medium as President, where it has generated very different reactions from his opponents and supporters.

In addition to the TV airings, the special will also stream live for subscribers on September 22nd via CNNgo (at CNN.com/go and via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Samsung Smart TV and Android TV) and on the CNN mobile apps for iOS and Android.  “Twitter & Trump” will also be available the day after the premiere on demand via cable/satellite systems, CNNgo platforms and CNN mobile apps.
