On Saturday, September 1, actress Alyssa Milano issued a Twitter challenge to President Donald Trump.
Milano observed that despite his 54 million+ followers on Twitter, Trump rarely receives more than 20k retweets. And though Milano only has 3.32 million followers, she bet her tweet noting the large discrepancy would garner more retweets than what the President typically gets.
"It’s super weird to me that @realDonaldTrump has 54 MILLION followers and his tweets rarely get over 20 thousand retweets."
"He’s screaming into the wind."
"I bet this tweet gets more RT’s."
She turned out to be very right!
As of Monday, September 3, the tweet had 81,160 retweets, despite Milano's Twitter followers making up only a fraction of Trump's followers. That fraction is 6% for those wondering.
And while 20,000 is just the average number of retweets for the President, some of his posts exceed 40,000.
Like his latest post of "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!" intended to inspire his supporters. It received 42,588 retweets. What's the big deal? That's only 0.08% of his Twitter followers. Milano got a retweet from 2.4% of her followers.
