that's one way to do it

Donald Trump says he composes some of his tweets by shouting them at people

Since joining in March 2009, Donald Trump has embraced Twitter wholeheartedly, using it to praise himself and attack his rivals, 140 characters at a time. On Tuesday, he revealed how he remains on top of his Twitter game: by shouting his deep thoughts at people.

The prolific tweeter (he has composed 31,600 tweets and has 7.57 million followers) told CNN's Anderson Cooper that nearly every single tweet and retweet comes straight from him, but he does have some help. "During the day, I'm in the office, I'll just shout it out to one of the young ladies, my tremendous office staff," he said.

However, once the sun goes down, it's all Trump. "During the evenings, after 7 o'clock or so, I will always do it by myself," he shared. Trump said that by using this "modern method of communication," it gives him a "big advantage" over the rest of the field, and he has a point — Ted Cruz has 1.04 million followers, while John Kasich has just 289,000.
