This contradicts other White House officials who have recently dialed back on the importance of the tweets. One active supporter of the president said that while he was willing to defend Trump in public against allegations from Comey or Democrats, he was less comfortable weighing in on specific claims about Kushner's interactions with Russian officials.
Trump's defense of his Twitter habit came a day after one of his aides, Kellyanne Conway, criticized the USA media for having "this obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what he does as president".
Trump's Twitter usage has been a cornerstone of his presidency, offering a window into his thinking, sometimes at the expense of his administration's messaging. What Neiss couldn't have known Sunday, however, was that the very nature Trump's tweets would become a cable news talking point the very next day, as the president's surrogates attempted to argue that media was "obsessing" over Trump's social media use, seemingly in the attempt to separate the president's Twitter statements from his presidential actions.
"The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C", he wrote. "It's not policy. It's social media".
"I think his use of social media. gives him an opportunity to speak straight to the American people, which has proved to be a very, very effective tool", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told a daily press briefing.

Fundraising programs include Plane Pulls, Polar Plunges, Tip-A-Cop and more according to the Special Olympics website . This event continues to grow as the single largest fund-raiser for the Illinois Special Olympics .
Any attempt to differentiate between Trump's Twitter feed and the official voice of the White House is a distinction without a difference.
"Is President Trump at all concerned that his tweets could be used against him at the level of the Supreme Court when the ACLU takes on this travel ban case?"
But Trump seems undeterred about critics of his Twitter remarks. I'm not tangoing with this guy, I've got better things to do, " Khan said in response to Trump's tweets suggesting he was soft on terrorism, snarkily adding, "Isn't he busy?"
Spicer, who fields a lot of questions about the meaning of the President's tweets, was asked if Trump undermines his own agenda-setting when he tweets. A chain of postings about his travel ban may hamper his administration's defense in courts.
"They're considered official statements by the president of the United States", Spicer said of the president's Twitter comments.
