Proofread the President

Earlier this week, on a sleepless whim, I started an Instagram account featuring a handful of real Trump tweets which I’d marked up proofreading-style and graded. I gave it a couple mentions from other social media accounts to gauge interest. To my surprise, it accumulated 500 followers in the first two days and continues to grow.

Thank you for not smocking.

Obviously there’s no end of source material and the posts take minimal effort to create, so I plan to keep updating regularly and see how it goes. Before making the account, I searched around a bit to see if anyone had beat me to the punch. Obviously I’m not the first to parse out the amazing typos and baffling grammar of our Stable-Genius-in-Chief, but as far as I can tell there are no other accounts dedicated to this exercise in futility, and I’m happy to claim it.

Beats screaming.
