Oh, hi, Donald Trump! What’s on your mind today?
Good God, what fresh hell is this?
For the record, here’s how Twitter determines trending topics:
Trends are determined by an algorithm and, by default, are tailored for you based on who you follow, your interests, and your location. This algorithm identifies topics that are popular now, rather than topics that have been popular for a while or on a daily basis, to help you discover the hottest emerging topics of discussion on Twitter.
Note: The number of Tweets that are related to the trends is just one of the factors the algorithm looks at when ranking and determining trends. Algorithmically, trends and hashtags are grouped together if they are related to the same topic. For instance, #MondayMotivation and #MotivationMonday may both be represented by #MondayMotivation.
So imagine you’re a risible blob of orange protoplasm that everyone with an IQ above 60 hates. People get on Twitter, tweet bad things about you, and those topics trend. Nothing “unfair” about it. And it’s certainly not “illegal,” FFS.

The next talking head to say Trump has adopted a newly serious tone gets a free trip to SeaWorld Orlando. I’ll chip in. Anyone else?
