Donald Trump has been allowed back on Twitter, to the detriment of Twitter users everywhere - and probably to the despair of his team.

A few days prior to the elections, The New York Times reported that his aides had 'wrested' the President-elect’s Twitter account away from him, because he was getting a little trigger-happy with it.

Now it seems he's back in charge.

On Sunday, Trump attacked The New York Times on their coverage of the election as it pertained to the Republican.

He also claimed that their ‘poor’ coverage cost them thousands of subscribers:

Except he was wrong.

The New York Times’ PR team were quick to correct him:

The publication's subscriptions are four times better than normal.

The best way to sum up the internet's response?
