Ever since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president, he quickly came under fire for his controversial use of Twitter and social media. Though Trump has vowed to continue tweeting to the American people, he might have had a change of heart by giving up his personal cell phone.

Trump Twitter trouble

For the first time in history, social media has had a dramatic impact on the way the American people received their news and information. Twitter became prominent when Donald Trump used it as his number one way to communicate and announce information.

With Trump struggling to have a respectful relationship with the news media, getting his message across through Twitter as been an important tool for the billionaire real estate mogul. Over the last year and a half, Trump has used social media to bash his political opponents, smear celebrities and entertainment like "Saturday Night Live," and to call out entire foreign countries. As reported by The Hill on January 19, that all might come to an end very soon.

Originally reported by the Associated Press, Donald Trump has decided that he will give up his personal cell phone.

After advice from multiple secret agents, Trump made the decision and informed a close friend on Thursday night. The move is similar to the one made by President Obama back in January 2009, when he traded in his own phone for a secured Blackberry device.

Twitter gone?

It's become commonplace for Donald Trump to send out messages on Twitter, regardless of the time or day.

From being triggered over Alec Baldwin and a skit on "Saturday Night Live," to lashing out at the media on a routine basis, the former host of "The Apprentice" has made Twitter part his modus operandi. However, with Trump now giving up his cell phone, it's likely that his Twitter habits will either slow down, or come to an end.

In just a few hours, Donald Trump will officially be sworn in as the new commander in chief on Inauguration Day. While that is taking place, over 100,000 protesters will be taking to the streets in Washington, D.C. while other demonstrations will be occurring across the country, including outside of Trump Tower in New York City.
