Donald Trump’s #AskTrump Twitter “chat” drew a barrage of snarky tweets yesterday.
But was the Q&A session during his visit to Twitter’s New York headquarters a misfire, or was it a carefully orchestrated—and successful—move by the GOP front-runner and his team?

Let’s look at the evidence:
1. Trump’s not a Twitter chump. Trump, who’s a Twitter pro whether or not you agree with what he tweets, has preferred using social media over traditional media to bring his campaign messages straight to his 4 million followers. He has used Twitter as a megaphone from which to sell his brand of politics to anyone who will listen.
