What was the paper about?
In early August there was a tweet from Todd Vaziri (@tvaziri) stating that Donald Trump's non-hyperbolic tweets were from his staff using an iPhone and hyperbolic tweets were from him using an Android device.
This blog analyses approximately 1,500 Donald Trump tweets by device, tweet time, type of tweet and ultimately sentiment to illustrate the differences between his own tweets and those of his staff.
Ultimately it was demonstrated that the tweets from the Android device contained more negative emotions than those from the iPhone
