If asked to describe President Trump’s Twitter persona, I’d say he was a can of gasoline looking for a lit match.

Incendiary tweets manage to rile supporters and skeptics alike, and all we can do is watch the world burn, at least figuratively, each time Trump hits the “Tweet” button. This isn’t by accident, Trump enjoys the attention.

A Twitter bot manages to make this analogy a literal one, and outshine Trump in the process. For each tweet, @burnedyourtweet does just what its name suggests: prints, cuts, grabs, moves, and burns the message.

Trump’s 27 million Twitter followers probably aren’t as impressed with it as I am.
