Since the invention of Twitter nearly a decade ago, businessman and President-elect Donald Trump has used the platform to espouse his views on a variety of topics in addition to biting back at his critics.
On the campaign trail, Trump often found himself in hot water over late night and early morning tweets. In the final stretch before Election Day, campaign staff convinced Trump to give up his Twitter account in order to avoid any last minute and unnecessary disasters. It worked.
But according to a new Quinnipiac University survey, the majority of Americans want Trump to give up on tweeting for good now that he's officially in line for the Oval Office.

Trump has expressed the effectiveness of using social media as a tool to go around mainstream media to connect directly with Americans. The chances of him giving up his Twitter habits are low, even if voters demand it.
