There are few things more powerful in media today than Donald Trump’s Twitter feed. In addition to using it as a weapon against political opponents, the few dozen people he follows have an unprecedented ability to shape the news coverage he consumes.

That select group of accounts followed by Trump declined by two after the president unfollowed Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. The purge happened sometime in the last two days and comes amidst relentless criticism from the pair on their popular MSNBC morning show.

In a recent widely shared segment, Brzezinski became emotional talking about Trump telling viewers “we’re all really nervous” about his actions. She also declared his administration fake and failed. Scarborough, too, has called Trump “rambling” and not “in control of reality.”

The president, who is notoriously sensitive to criticism, may have taken the high road with a simple unfollow. In the past, Trump has taken his critics to task in his timeline publicly for far less.
