Jennifer Grygiel, assistant professor of communications in the Newhouse School, was interviewed by USA Today for the story “Policy, not personal insults: Biden uses Twitter to sell his agenda, with a few pooch pics thrown in.” Grygiel, an expert on social media, says that while President Biden’s use of Twitter is less aggressive than former President Trump’s, presidential tweets are still a form of propaganda. “I’m deeply concerned that we have normalized government propaganda and the ability for them to reach a mass audience on social media,” and that this has not changed under President Biden, Grygiel says.
