This [tweet](https://twitter.com/tvaziri/status/762005541388378112) containing a hypothesis about Donald Trump's Twitter account needs to be investigated with data:
Others have [explored Trump’s timeline](http://www.cnet.com/news/trumps-tweets-android-for-nasty-iphone-for-nice/) and noticed this tends to hold up. And Trump himself [did indeed tweet from a Samsung Galaxy](http://www.theverge.com/2015/10/5/9453935/donald-trump-twitter-strategy) until [March 2017](https://www.recode.net/2017/5/27/15705090/president-donald-trump-twitter-android-iphone-ios-samsung-galaxy-security-hacking). But how could it be examined quantitatively? In this project, you will apply text mining and sentiment analysis to determine whether or not Trump does indeed write the angrier, Android tweets The dataset used in this project is from [The Trump Twitter Archive](http://www.trumptwitterarchive.com/) by Brendan Brown, which contains all 35,000+ tweets from the [@realDonaldTrump](https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/) Twitter account from 2009 (the year Trump sent his [first tweet](https://www.businessinsider.de/donald-trump-first-tweet-2017-5)) through 2018.
