I have heard that most of the politicians today have some employees who manage all the social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, etc. and they don't post/tweet anything themselves.

I think that is reasonable but there are several sources that claim to have found evidence that many tweets are actually from Trump himself like on this article: Text analysis of Trump's tweets confirms he writes only the (angrier) Android half

The analysis is quite interesting, but are there further proofs that support the result? Or are there proofs against the analysis? Maybe there is a strategical reason for doing this so my question is:

Is there a proof that at least some of the tweets are actually from Donald Trump and not from his employees? Actually i don't know how to define a proof in this case, maybe a trustworthy interview or a reliable source. What could be a reliable proof?

    I don't think we can answer this question on these terms. We should allow all evidence, present it, and then decide how convincing it is. Sometimes we only have partial evidence, and that's okay. As it is currently posed, the question sets an arbitrarily high level of proof, which makes it opinion based. – Sklivvz Mar 10 '17 at 7:32

    @Sklivvz How can I change the question to fit this requirement? Soften the last paragraph? – izlin Mar 10 '17 at 7:41
  • Surely this could be proven with a single photo of post-election Trump typing into the Twitter app on his phone? Since the US president is typically one of the most photographed people on earth, that doesn't seen like an unreasonably high standard. – user56reinstatemonica8 Mar 10 '17 at 9:09

    You might be interested in this blog post. Data suggests that, at the very least, @realDonaldTrump tweets are not all written by the same person. – ff524 Mar 10 '17 at 19:39

    I note the above example because it's so readily verifiable. The Second Presidential Debate was broadcast on live television and streamed/stored on sites like YouTube, showing Trump clearly stating his claim in his own words, and the relevant tweet's still on his Twitter that he officially endorses as his. We rarely get such solid, well-verified evidence for stuff like this. – Nat Aug 4 '17 at 0:51
