CNN is airing a “Special Report” on Trump and his Twitter account Friday night at 9 PM.

“Twitter & Trump” is an hour-long CNN special hosted by Bill Weir, and will examine “President Trump’s Twitter use from its very beginnings to becoming a political weapon in the insult filled primaries to his use of the medium as President, where it has generated very different reactions from his opponents and supporters.”

“In 140 characters—multiplied across thousands of tweets—President Donald Trump has revolutionized the flow of communication from the nation’s highest office,” CNN’s press shop writes. “Today, his Twitter use is also at the center of constant controversy.

In a preview for the special on CNN early Friday, Weir explained that he had printed a large book with all of Trump’s tweets dating back to 2009.

“People will be studying his words for centuries,” Weir said. “It’s pretty staggering when you look at it.”
