These Are All The Accounts Donald Trump Retweeted During The Campaign

BuzzFeed News analyzed all the accounts Donald Trump retweeted during his presidential campaign. What we found are clues as to whom the president-elect views as a fitting surrogate.

Posted on

With the touch of the retweet button, Donald Trump — who has some 17.5 million followers — can program the news cycle. He can amplify formerly unknown accounts, signal what voices he's listening to, and tacitly endorse individuals and ideas, no matter how controversial: Trump, more than any politician or powerful figure with access to a smartphone, understands and uses the now-clichéd "retweets are not endorsements" maxim to his advantage.

To better understand which individuals and institutions the president-elect relies on as social media surrogates, BuzzFeed News compiled a complete list of users Trump has retweeted since he launched his presidential campaign.

We reviewed 26,377 of Trump’s 34,152 tweets, which we received through the Twitter API and developer Brendan Brown, who has archived Trump’s tweets beyond what is accessible via the API (a stream of data that includes information like tweet text, time, and date). We filtered that data down to the 2,760 hyperlinks tweeted by Trump’s personal Twitter account since he announced his candidacy in June 2015 up until December 15 of this year.

By programmatically expanding the links, we were able to narrow them down to the links he tweeted from Twitter (retweets show up as links from twitter.com when downloaded as data), filtered out the ones that were media tweets, and were left with all the manual, regular, and quote tweets Trump had sent through his account. Fourteen of the accounts that Trump has retweeted are no longer active. Among those 14, five accounts — White GenocideTM, babo_siren, Campaign_Trump, patrioticpepe, and TMoody — were suspended (Twitter suspends accounts when users violate its rules, most commonly if the account spams people, may have been hacked, or is engaging in abusive behavior).

Analysis of the accounts Trump has retweeted reveals several distinct patterns:

Trump appears willing to retweet almost anyone. Unlike most mainstream politicians, who carefully select the accounts they'll amplify, Trump is comfortable retweeting a truly diverse array of accounts. Just last month, the President-elect retweeted a 16-year-old from California as evidence to support a Twitter feud with CNN. He does not discriminate based on number of followers (he retweeted an account with just two followers), number of tweets (he retweeted the first tweet from a woman who, to date, has only tweeted five times), or the contents of someone's account bio (he retweeted one user whose bio at the time was: "Mexico, get ready to receive your finest citizens back! Rapists, Thieves & Perverts").

"@FiIibuster: @jeffzeleny Pathetic - you have no sufficient evidence that Donald Trump did not suffer from voter fraud, shame! Bad reporter.

But he is most likely to boost the signal from his inner circle and friendly members of the press. The accounts he retweets the most were those of campaign advisers and some chosen members of the press, including his social media lead, Dan Scavino (21 retweets); his son Eric Trump (5); Fox News' Greta Van Susteren (4); MSNBC host Joe Scarborough (4); former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (3); Lifezette editor and conservative pundit Laura Ingraham (3); and Bloomberg Politics' Mark Halperin (2).

The president-elect, despite his repeated claims of a deeply biased mainstream media, retweets a high number of legacy media outlets. Among his most tweeted news accounts: Fox News (7 retweets), Fox and Friends (6), ABC (3), CNN (3), and Morning Joe (2). In nearly every instance, the retweeted accounts shared news items or memes about polls that favored Trump (many from the primaries), or negative articles about Hillary Clinton — many of them aggregations of WikiLeaks emails. Trump also appears to be eager to promote positive news about him from pop culture and entertainment accounts, as evidenced by his retweeting Saturday Night Live's account three times.


"@Albusinvogue: @Sia is performing, DonaldTrump is hosting. Tonight's #saturdaynightlive is going to be legendary. "

On occasion, Trump will retweet a user from the other side of the aisle. This tends to happen under two circumstances:

1) When an account says something positive about him (in one instance, Trump retweeted former Obama Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer, who suggested Trump understood the internet better than most Democrats):

Thank you Dan--I agree! Best wishes. https://t.co/DAEomTNoMq

2) To attempt to attack his opponents — as he did here last June with Hillary Clinton:

How long did it take your staff of 823 people to think that up--and where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted? https://t.co/gECLNtQizQ

He has retweeted accounts with clear ties to the alt-right on numerous occasions. Trump recently told the New York Times he disavowed the movement and suggested he didn't "want to energize the group." However, throughout the 2016 campaign, Trump retweeted three separate users with the words "alt-right" in their bios. He retweeted "WhiteGenocideTM," and four with "nationalist" in their bios. One account that the president-elect retweeted (a bot, it turns out) had the phrase "#GoebbelsMindset" in the bio — a reference to Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister in Hitler's Germany.

Other items of note include:

— 151 of the 294 individual accounts Trump retweeted during the campaign mention the word "Trump" in the bio or account display name.

— 22 accounts have the Make America Great Again hashtag, #MAGA, in theirs.

— 14 accounts have the word "deplorable" in the bio or account display name.

— 9 accounts have the word "veteran" in the bio or account display name.

— 2 accounts have a frog emoji in the bio or account display name, presumably a reference to Pepe.

But there's no better way to get a peek into Trump's Twitter mindset than to explore the accounts he's retweeted for yourself. Below, we've included every account he's retweeted, in order of the number of times Trump has RT'd the account (Of note: the bios and follower counts are current as of when BuzzFeed News scraped the data on December 7th, 2016, and may not necessarily reflect the bio or follower accounts on the day Trump retweeted them). There's also a full graphic at the end of the list.

A complete list of users Trump has retweeted since he launched his presidential campaign.

Including quote tweets, manual retweets, and regular retweets.

Sources: TrumpTwitterArchive.com, Twitter.com/@realdonaldtrump.

Notes: Analyzed tweets date from June 1, 2015, the month when he announced his presidential campaign, to Dec. 15, 2016. A manual retweet is when you type in “RT” or, in Trump's case, a quotation mark before someone else’s tweet, instead of a “regular” retweet using the official retweet button.
