By requesting that the army intervene against its people, and by publishing a call to violence on Twitter, Trump has caused an unprecedented shock wave.
Like any good populist, Trump needs an unmediated vehicle that rewards the simplicity of the message and fuels passions.
The latest jobs figures showed that employment in the U.S. surged 2.9% in May – the biggest one-month gain ever recorded going back to 1948. Little wonder that Trump would break out the 'We’re Number [One]' tweet.
Twitter is based in the U.S., and the Trump administration has more potential power over the company compared to Bolsonaro and other world leaders.
