...and a little bit of neither

If a tweet posts on the internet, and no one in the media reports on it, does it make a difference?

I've yet to hear anything about these tweets, except a mention of how many Trump has posted over the weekend, on any NPR news program this morning.  If the NYT is covering it, Maggie Haberman is not retweeting the tweet announcing the article.  I assume I won't hear about it on the evening news, PBS Newshour, or the like.

How hard is it to say?  Apparently it's impossible to even broach the subject.

And yet:  "The President posted a lot of tweets this weekend!" is all I'm hearing.

Apparently I'm not the only one:

It's a wondrous hope; but I'm not holding my breath.
