In the past, presidents had to rely on newspapers to communicate with the people. They were often a lot more brutal than their 21st century media counterpart.
Eventually, technology provided a platform for the presidents. Franklin Roosevelt gave his first radio address in 1933. Modern day presidents have more options. As we all know, President Trump uses Twitter.
Last Friday Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had his account hacked. The hackers posted racist, pro-Nazi material. The company was able restore the account after fifteen minutes.
Suppose someone hacked into Trump’s account? It could create a panic. News travels around the globe at the speed of light. I am no tech expert but it is vital that security be tightened. This is a national security issue.
Hopefully, they don’t decide to install a private server in the basement of Trump Plaza.
