Hello. Good evening.

Retweets are not endorsements. Neither are faves. Having said that, someone on Melania Trump’s social team just did a whoopsie daisy.

Alex Litel spotted that @melaniatrump, a verified account, faved this tweet:

Maybe she was reading it and faved it. Maybe she was reading it and faved it accidentally. Maybe someone with access to her account was reading it and faved it accidentally. This last option seems far and away the most likely.

Social media managers make mistakes and they should not be fired for them and this is a truth I have written many times. The internet has an unquenchable thirst for outrage but that thirst often ends up taking us to crazy places. A few years ago a Houston Rockets social person was fired for emoji violence.

Anyway, someone in the Trump organization (or the general Trump universe, or a random person on the street who found Melania Trump’s lost phone —or the phone of someone with access to her account) apparently thought this was funny, which is pretty funny to people not in the Trump organization.

So, hahahahahah.

Have a great night.

 

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
