A new study of President Trump’s tweets indicates that he’s been sleeping less and less.

The study, conducted by Columbia University researchers Douglas Almond and Xinming Du, analyzed the President’s tweets from January 24, 2017 to April 10, 2020.

He continues to tweet about once every two to three hours throughout day, with an average of 10 tweets per day.

During the early days of his presidency, President Trump typically posted late-night tweets on average one evening per week.

But on the three nights per week that the President tweets late at night, his average tweet time is 12:06 am.

As the researchers put it, after a late night he posts fewer “home run” tweets and more “non-resonant” ones.

Although this shift in President Trump’s tweets has not yet attracted much attention in the media, the betting markets have certainly taken notice. »
