Back in January, we compiled a list of some of our favorite Donald Trump tweets, pointing out the unique manner in which the president chooses to express himself to the world.

A lot has happened since then, and now that we’ve past the 100 days mark, we thought it would be good to once again review and recap the president’s Twitter usage.

Up to this point, Trump’s time in office can accurately be described as “rocky.” While some things have worked out and others have not, each week seems to bring a new scandal, the latest being Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey, and the president’s conflicting accounts of why he did it.

But whatever challenges he faces, it has not, and we’re sure it will not, prevent him from taking to his favorite social media platform to let us know just what’s on his mind and in his heart.

Trump has said Twitter allows him to bypass “fake news” and address his followers directly. In addition, it provides friends and foes alike with an opportunity to find out what is on the mind of the US president … or what cable news show he has been watching at any given time. The tweets also provide a window into what kind of things are getting under the president’s skin.

Because Trump provides this unprecedented insight into the thinking (or lack thereof) of a president, we would be remiss not to highlight some of these tweets. You can find our selection of some of the most important presidential tweets below.

    Eh, light entertainment only. Trump is after all a con artist, so you should watch his busy hands, not his busy mouth.

    What a farce. This man is definitely mentally ill.
