Trump yet to show promised ‘restraint’ on twitter account
He’s busy attacking the New York Times. It may make him and his supporters feel great, but it’s not how a president-elect should be spending his time.
Trump decided on Sunday morning to hammer The New York Times over how the paper covered his presidential campaign.
Wow, the @nytimes is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the "Trump phenomena"

Trump’s second tweet refers to a memo the paper sent out this weekend. Publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. made an appeal to the Grey Lady’s subscribers, where he acknowledged that they underestimated Trump’s appeal across America, and that the paper’s staff would re-commit themselves to fair reporting in the future.
During an interview he gave to 60 Minutes on Friday, Trump said that he would be “very restrained” with his tweeting in the future.
