Donald Trump said that his use of Twitter as president will be 'very restrained'


During an interview with "60 Minutes," President-elect Donald Trump said that his use of his controversial Twitter account will be "very restrained" once he takes office, reports CBS News.

Despite his supposed decreased use of the social media platform, Trump expounded upon the virtues of the tool, saying, "I find it tremendous. It’s a modern form of communication." 

The interview is set to air on Sunday.    

I'm going to be very restrained, if I use it at all, I'm going to be very restrained.
Donald Trump

Trump actually credited his election victory to Twitter. He criticized his opponents for spending too much money on more traditional forms of advertising, instead of taking advantage of social media. 

Trump's aides had taken his account away from him, but he's begun tweeting again. 

28 million people follow Trump on his Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
