President-elect Donald Trump continues to defy conventional wisdom, and appears to be fashioning many of his policies in real time on Twitter. But not all of his voters are as enthusiastic about his controversial tweeting as they were about pulling the lever for him at the ballot box.
A simple search on the social media site will garner dozens of self-reported Trump voters pleading with him to give up the Twitter – here are some examples:

@realDonaldTrump I voted for you, but you have to stop tweeting every time you're mentioned. Show some presidential restraint.

But, to be fair, there are others who love his social media antics and want them to continue:

Recently the president-elect has caused some consternation by targeting companies for criticism from his Twitter account and causing their stock prices to drop, in addition to resetting U.S. foreign policy and constantly attacking his critics in the media and otherwise. And he hasn’t even assumed the office yet.
