US President Donald Trump on Sunday explained to 45 million followers on Twitter why he frequently uses the social network.

"I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair 'press,' now often referred to as Fake News Media," he tweeted, "Phony and non-existent 'sources' are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!"

Trump's opponents have long mocked him for his extensive Twitter usage. They claim this indicates an unserious and superficial personality, lack of control, and a tendency to shoot from the hip, often asking Trump's assistants why they don't prevail upon the President to stop the so-called childish habit.
