Rosanne & Trump & Tweets

As quoted in the Boston Herald Rosanne Barr said, “I’m bipolar and have ADHD and multiple-personality disorder.” Ok, at least she admits it, but, a few terrible tweets, and she’s out of ABC and tons of people lost their jobs as a result. I spent last weekend watching some of the new episodes on Hulu, and thought it was a decent show but bye-bye.

So then you have Donald Trump. As far as I know, Trump is not clinically diagnosed with a mental illness, but, something nasty is going on there; narcissistic personality disorder? I don’t know but, something in the personality disorder arena, and his tweets are a perfect example of his mental state. And, how many people have lost their jobs in the white house since his appointment? A lot. Sad.

So, what do they both have in common? They both use twitter, and their behavior on twitter is a great tool to track their moods, and mental health issues.  There’s actually a museum that is coming to LA that exhibits Presidential Tweets. Is this a good thing? I think so. Am I happy about Rosanne’s cancellation, no, but it had to be done. Her racism was out of control, but her tweets can manifest a troubled state of mind and are a great tool to help teach people about mental health awareness; especially the young generation. And there is a lot to glean from Trumps tweets about mental health issues.

Interestingly enough, people wake up every day with a new tweet to remind them of their President, in other words, “I’m still here! I’m still relevant!” I honestly think this is a strategic play on Trumps part to try and keep him on the forefront of peoples minds much like a narcissist would behave. So, are we going to look back and have a whole log of tweets that manifest mental health issues? Yup! Sadly, it might have to take a few years for us to look back and see the psychology behind tweets but, I think it will happen, eventually.
