Trump’s “NO COLLUSION” Tweet is getting ratio’d (and why that’s important)



Donald Trump Twitter

There’s a silly little phenomenon in social media that doesn’t mean much 99.99% of the time. It occasionally happens to most popular Twitter users from and usually means they riled up a certain element of the internet for some reason. A bad Tweet can get “ratio’d” which means there were more comments than likes. One notable person, President Trump, has never (to my knowledge) been ratio’d. That streak is in danger today with his Tweet pointing out that there’s no collusion on the table in the current Mueller indictments.

Everything the President Tweets will get tons of comments. Most are negative as his detractors will react thought comments on his Tweets while his supporters will like and/or retweet him instead. This may be the first time the negative reactions are more prominent than the reactions of his supporters.

Not a big deal, but…

It was bound to happen at some point. The fact that it’s happening with this Tweet is telling. For Trump to get “ratio’d” means his detractors must come out in full force while his supporters must be less enthusiastic than normal.

The indictments and arrests by Robert Mueller can go in one of two directions. They can point to things that happened during the campaign itself which could put other people in the campaign (or even the President himself) in jeopardy. It could also end here with a minor prize for the investigation but no real connections to campaign activities.

Getting ratio’d indicates that his supporters are fearful of the former. In other words, enough of them fear there really was collusion that will come to light as a result of the investigation which makes them wary of supporting this particular Tweet. Keep in mind that it likely won’t have any bearing on their support for the President himself, but they’re avoiding this topic for now.

Social media has been demonstrated to be a strong predictor of future events. It has also failed miserably from time to time. If it’s correct this time, we may be seeing more come out of the investigation than just financial misdeeds from the past.
