US President Donald Trump may be identified with prestigious towers in the heart of New York, dubious universities bearing his name and a highly rated reality show, but now more than anything, his daily tweets through which he directly communicates with the public are taking the spotlight. Comedy Central’s Daily Show has taken the president’s activity on social media a step further and opened a pop-up museum showcasing his tweets called: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library.

The newest New York “library” was open this past weekend and will close tonight. The general public was invited to view the exhibition for free. The exhibition’s website stated that the inspiration for the initiative was former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt's decree to publish his official papers in 1939: "The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library continues this grand tradition with a celebration of President Trump’s most important documents: his tweets.”

“The exhibits that follow explore the history, science and art of Donald Trump’s tweets - from his earliest attempts to put stubby fingers to phone, to his emergence as our era’s preeminent social media revolutionary,” read the website.

From his infamously unclear tweet about "covfefe" to his pick for the FBI's new director following James Comey’s dismissal, all of Trump’s classic tweets published on his private account since 2009 have been framed in gold, numbering no less than 35,000. Due to the high demand and interest, the museum announced it would extend its final hours on Sunday night until 10:00 PM.
